Humid conditions and moisture concerns in Bellingham homes leave many residences combating mold development throughout the year. With the experience and fast response of our SERVPRO team, we can help.
SERVPRO Completes Mold Inspections
One of the earliest aspects of professional mold remediation is the arrival of our production manager to walk through the property with our customer. We identify the needed recovery actions, explain the process to the concerned homeowner, and work on developing a detailed estimation and remediation plan. The findings of this initial inspection help prioritize the sequence of cleanup.
Many Possible Mold Remediation Options
Several options exist for choosing the ideal mold remediation and removal approaches. Eliminating active colonies is not universal, and many factors can play a part in the perfect cleaning options. The affected surface, the infestation's severity, and the mold damage location all help our team choose from surface cleaning and abrasive blasting to controlled demolition. We are prepared to help with:
- Attic mold removal
- Bathroom mold cleanup
- Mold removal
- Black mold damage repairs
- Basement mold remediation
The Continuation of Mold Odors
One of the troublesome aspects of mold development in a residence is the lingering effects these organisms leave behind. Even following remediation, much of the strong, musty odor characterizing a mold infestation still requires neutralization. Masking these odors is ineffective, as this does not solve the underlying cause. We use powerful agents to chemically bond with odor molecules for a permanent solution.

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these 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 a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
- 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.
