The steps our Spokane mold damage pros use for mold removal include:

  • Containment of affected areas – We block off areas and contain places with live mold to keep you safe so that you’re not exposed before we have a chance to remediate it.
  • Monitoring air flow – Air quality suffers greatly when mold is present. Our professionals continuously monitor indoor air quality and take steps to cleanse the air for your safety.
  • Identifying sources of moisture – During our inspection, we’re not just looking for mold. We’re also looking for the source of the moisture that’s responsible for mold growth.
  • Addressing the underlying moisture problem – When we find the source of the moisture that caused the mold problem, we address the issue and inform you of the resolution.
  • Using sanitizers and biocides – We use sanitizers and biocides to disinfect and remove the harmful black mold to ensure the once-affected areas are safe for you and your family to enter.
  • Disinfecting surfaces – Our Spokane team disinfects hard and soft surfaces near the affected areas to make sure mold doesn’t have a chance to attach to other surfaces.
  • Using encapsulants – We apply a powerful sealant to hard surfaces that prevent mold from spreading and growing.

Our team provides residential and commercial mold inspections and removal services to create a healthy indoor environment. We hire the most dedicated and skilled mold damage professionals to take care of mold at the source. We follow a thorough process and use state-of-the-art equipment when you trust us to find and remove mold contamination.

The Dangers of Living with Mold

You may need a mold inspection if you’re experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms that persist for weeks. Mold can cause symptoms to appear as soon as two hours after exposure. Unknowing and long-term mold exposure can result in more severe health problems like frequent asthma attacks, nose bleeds, and even hospitalization.

Symptoms of mold sickness include:

  • Respiratory problems such as asthma, coughing, and wheezing
  • Eye irritation, such as redness and itching
  • Skin irritation, including rashes
  • Allergy-like symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose and watery eyes
  • Headaches or allergic reactions to mold exposure
  • Fatigue and difficulty concentrating
  • Memory loss or confusion

Common Places Mold Grows in Your Home

Mold loves dark, moist, and warm places, spreading throughout your home fast and unknowingly. The most important thing to remember is that mold will grow anywhere humidity levels are above 70% and there’s a moisture source nearby.

Places mold can growth within your home includes:

  • Bathrooms
  • Kitchens
  • Basements and cellars
  • Window sills and frames
  • Around air ducts and vents
  • Crawl spaces
  • Underneath carpets or rugs
  • On walls, ceilings, doors, windows, and other surfaces with moisture or poor ventilation
  • In fabric furniture that has come into contact with water or moisture

Common Types of Mold and Their Appearances

While some types of mold are harmless, others can pose serious health risks. As a homeowner, it's important to be able to identify what mold looks like.

Here are some of the common types of molds and how they look:

  • Black Mold (Stachybotrys): Often considered the most dangerous type, black mold is usually dark green or black and has a slimy texture.
  • White Mold: This type of mold can be powdery in texture and appears as white patches on damp surfaces.
  • Green Mold: Green mold varies in shade from blue-green to dark green. It can grow on walls, furniture, and even food.
  • Yellow Mold: Bright in color, yellow mold often grows in damp, dark areas such as basements or attics.
  • Pink Mold: Despite its name, pink mold isn't actually a mold but a bacteria called Serratia marcescens. It's commonly found in bathrooms and kitchens due to the constant moisture.
  • Brown Mold: Brown mold is typically found on wooden structures and appears as brown spots or patches.
  • Orange Mold: Orange mold is often found outdoors on decaying plants but can also grow indoors, especially in damp areas.
  • Gray Mold (Botrytis): Common in plants, gray mold appears as a fuzzy gray growth.

How Long Does It Take For Mold To Grow?

Mold is a type of fungi that travels through the air in spores. These spores are invisible to the naked eye and only become a problem when they land on a wet surface. Mold can start to grow within 24-48 hours of contact with water.

Mold growth is often encouraged by high humidity levels and temperatures between 77 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Mold can cause a number of health problems, including respiratory problems, skin irritation, and headaches. Mold is also known to cause damage to buildings, as it can weaken wood and drywall.

As mold starts to grow, it releases mold spores into the air, which can then travel to other areas of the building and start the mold growth cycle all over again. In order to prevent mold growth, it is important to keep indoor humidity levels low and to quickly clean up any water damage.

Why Does Mold Grow?

Mold is a type of fungus that can cause serious allergic reactions and health hazards in humans. It grows in warm, damp places, which is why it's often found in bathrooms, basements, attics, and other areas with poor ventilation.

The causes of mold growth include:
  • Excess moisture in the air or on surfaces
  • High humidity levels
  • Areas that don’t get enough light and/or heat
  • Poor ventilation
  • Water damage - from flooding, natural disasters
  • Leaky roofs or plumbing
  • Condensation on windows, walls or other surfaces

Mold typically takes hold within 24-48 hours after moisture or water builds up on a surface or an area with poor ventilation. The humidity level, temperature, and the amount of light in the room influence how quickly mold grows.

Poor ventilation also accelerates mold growth since it allows moisture to linger on surfaces instead of dissipating.

To prevent mold growth, make sure there are no leaks around windows or plumbing fixtures and any areas with excessive moisture or humidity should be well ventilated as soon as possible.

Mold can result from something as simple as a leaky appliance to a complex issue like burst pipes.
