Air sample collection give you factual evidence about the current state of your air quality. We can collect samples of air from areas you smell or see something out of the ordinary. If there are small indications of water damage on a wall we can do cavity samples to determine if there is a problem beneath the surface. Surface sample collection is used when visible mold growth is present. Certain species of fungus are not easily airborne unless disturbed; this includes the dreaded toxic black mold stachybotrys. Identifying the species present is vital in determining whether or not the issue could be handled by yourself or requires professional intervention.
For clients that do have elevated levels of mold in their home, we provide a complete protocol for removal. This includes a step-by-step process for how the process should be handled and who should be doing the work. A mold remediation is different that a typical remodeling job. When removing contaminated materials, you are sending thousands of mold spores into the air. For this reason, problem areas should be contained and equipped with and airscrubber while work is being done. After contaminated materials are removed, walls must be hepa vaccumed and treated with antimicrobial solutions and sealants. These are things that professional companies have the capabilities of doing that a normal handyman would not. If this type of work is attempted by someone without the proper experience, there is a good chance they will only further the air quality issues within the home or business.
When dealing with these kinds of issues in your home or business, you want to make sure that you hire a company without a conflict of interest. Hiring a Seattle mold remediation company to complete an inspection is an example of what you don’t want to do. These companies often offer free inspections to get their foot in their door to pitch a larger, more expensive job. As we already mentioned, sometimes clients have results that come back with no problem at all or one small enough to be handled on their own. A visual inspection could never tell you these types of details and some mold removal companies would not pass up the opportunity for work by letting you know your concerns are unwarranted.
