Mold Testing & Inspection Services in Seattle, WA & Surrounding Areas
What Makes Mold So Pervasive in Seattle, WA?
Mold is an issue no matter where you live. But when your climate is as humid as ours is here in Seattle, WA, it can be especially problematic. It may surprise you to know that it doesn’t matter if it’s hot or cold outside, your home will still be susceptible to mold growth. That’s because mold can survive in a wide range of temperatures and can start to grow in under 48 hours.
Mold can grow anywhere that it has food, air, moisture, and the right temperature range. For mold, food is all around us. Any organic material, like the wood, drywall, and grout in your home, is food for mold. There’s not much that can be done to avoid it. Air is next on the list and is pretty self-explanatory and completely unavoidable. The temperature range for mold is 41-100 degrees Fahrenheit, and our comfort zone is somewhere between there, so we can’t fight that. All that leaves us to fight is moisture. Note that I said moisture, not water. Mold doesn’t need water to grow, just moisture. That means that any small leak in your roof of walls can facilitate mold growth. Even condensation on water pipes will promote rapid mold growth, especially since they tend to be tucked away. Out of sight, out of mind.
What If I Think I Have Mold?
If you are worried that you have a mold problem in your Seattle, WA home, having a mold inspection performed in your home is a smart first step. But why should you hire Mold Test USA, a company that only offers mold inspections, instead of a do-it-all company? Especially if that do-it-all company offers promotional offers on inspections?
For starters, since we focus solely on mold inspections, we are light years beyond remediation companies in our training and certification practices. Beyond that, remediation companies offer special promotions on inspections as a sales pitch. They make their money off of remediations, not inspections. That means that any inspection they perform will ultimately lead to you “needing” a costly remediation service, whether it’s actually necessary or not. At Mold Test USA, our inspections are our bread and butter. We have no reason to find mold in your home if it is not there, because we do not perform removals or remediations. Our number one concern is the health and safety of your home and the family in it.
