Evergreen, WA Mold Damage Remediation
There are many small businesses throughout Evergreen, including coffee shops and restaurants. The presence of mold in these structures must be met with urgency before it impacts a home or business beyond repair. We help with:
- Mold inspections
- Attic mold cleanup
- Mold remediation
- Black mold removal
Clearing Mold Growth from Evergreen Homes
There are several strategies for removing mold colonies from homes and businesses. While the process often begins with surface cleaning, more aggressive measures could be necessary if the infestation is worse than superficial. Options may include:
- Dry ice blasting
- Power sanding
- Antimicrobial cleaning
- Sponge pressure cleaning
Content Cleanup and Recovery
Protecting the contents of your home can be an important goal when mold damage spreads in the property. Certain materials are more sensitive to becoming hosting materials for active colonies than others, cardboard being one of them. Direct exposure to spreading mold can destroy certain contents, so we must act fast to relocate and protect your treasured belongings.
Is Mold Odor Removal Possible from Evergreen Homes?
Much like other hazardous disasters that could impact the properties in the area, mold can also generate harsh odors that must be resolved. While the smell might not be a health hazard, it is a hurdle preventing comfortable living conditions for the household. We have several deodorization practices we can implement during these final restoration efforts.

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or on a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

The Mold Remediation Process
Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:
Step 1: Emergency Contact - (425) 367-4484
The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask a series of questions to help us determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel.
Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the mold damage by carefully inspecting your property for visible signs of mold. Since mold can be hidden, we use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.
Step 3: Mold Containment
Our professionals use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off to prevent the spread of mold.
Step 4: Air Filtration
Our specialized filtration equipment allows our professionals to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.
Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials
Depending on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mold remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing
We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold, using a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and disinfect your belongings. We’re also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
Depending on the level of mold damage, drywall, subfloors, and other building materials may have been removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business. The restoration step gets your home or business back to normal.
