Marysville, WA Mold Damage Remediation

Because Marysville is located on the Snohomish River Delta, many homes and businesses face groundwater and moisture concerns throughout the year. As the second-largest city in the county, mold damage and subsequent remediation needs are a continual demand of the area. We have a roster of experienced remediation professionals able to move quickly to begin restoring homes and businesses impacted by microbial threats. Our building trade professionals can also arrive with remediators to begin implementing necessary physical barriers and repairs.

Mold Containment Strategies for Marysville Properties

Our contractors get to work immediately on establishing the damaged areas when we confirm the presence of mold colonization in your home. Containment is a considerable step in remediation, as this prevents the further movement of active mold spores and limits new materials from becoming hosts for organisms. Physical containment barriers get constructed out of wood framing and poly sheeting. Closing off the work area also increases the efficiency of drying and airflow in the designated zone.

Mold Odor Removal in Marysville

Deodorization might be one of the final steps that our professionals take, but it is a common staple of mold growth in your home. After colonization, eliminating musty odors involves numerous tools and strategies, as these smells do not only exist in open environments. This process hinges on several filtration and deodorization tools working simultaneously, including:

  • Air scrubbers
  • Negative air chambers
  • Hydroxyl generators
  • ULV and thermal foggers

Understanding Mold

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 - (360) 658-0506

We’re available 24 hours, 7 days a week to answer your phone call. Our consultant will guide you through this process, asking questions that will allow us to better understand your situation and to determine the needed equipment 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

The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. We’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. It may be necessary to remove and dispose of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and carpeting, to remediate heavy mold growth.

Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing

SERVPRO of Marysville / Arlington will use a variety of cleaning techniques and products to clean your furnishings and personal belongings. Since mold infestations also cause a persistent musty odor, our professionals are also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Marysville, WA home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mold damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
