Mold is known to have a negative impact on health, exacerbating asthma, allergies, respiratory infections, and even causing fatigue and other harmful conditions. When mold is spotted in a home or office, it is often much more pervasive than what you can see.

Call our trusted professionals for mold removal in Seattle and the Greater Metro area.
Mold is often a type of secondary damage that occurs after water damage has set in. The water may be coming from a crack you cannot see in the foundation or a slow leak in the roof that has not become apparent inside the home. These areas where unseen moisture has collected create optimal growing conditions for mold and mildew.
How does mold get into a home?
- Build up of moisture around windowsills
- Pipes that leak
- Flooding from a storm
- Cracks in the foundation
- A leak in the roof
- Undetected leaks behind walls, appliances, toilets, or sinks
- Overflowing tubs, toilets, or sinks
Certified, Professional Mold Removal in Seattle
Mold removal takes very specific safety equipment and a knowledgeable team, to handle it right. When homeowners try to handle it themselves they often wind up spreading the spores. Without following a strict safety protocol, the individuals doing the mold removal can inhale spores, which can create a serious health hazard.
Our mold remediation process includes:
- Inspect and assess
- Report any observations to the appropriate insurance company for you
- Establish the pervasiveness of contamination; isolate the contaminated areas
- Create a procedure plan (further environmental testing, identifying the type(s) of mold and baseline levels, deliver a written plan for your approval)
- Remove mold, and implement protection against spore spread
Our well-trained, experienced mold removal professionals not only detect mold in all the places it hides, but we also employ safety procedures to ensure none of the mold is spread and residents and worker are safe throughout the process. We responsibly dispose of all moldy materials.
Mold remediation includes treating both the area effected and the spaces around it with specialized products proven to prohibit the return of mold. We can also rebuild and replace damaged materials, such as drywall, carpeting, or other items.

Our goal is always to repair items and prevent the need for expensive replacements.
