Do you really need professional mold remediation?

Valina Wisner, Owner

If you have a mold issue and call a mold remediation company, they will most likely give you a “free inspection” and then an estimate for mold removal. The estimate will typically include removing the affected building material which is expensive, not to mention the added expense and time delay for re-construction. What we have found is that depending on the cause of the mold, which is often surface level only, it can be simply cleaned instead of removing the material. Remediation contractors generally won't mention this. During our inspections we have specialized techniques to determine if the mold is surface level or has penetrated the material. If it is surface mold, we provide the client with instructions for safe and effective cleaning. The typical cost for our residential mold inspection is between $400.00 - $500.00, which is significantly lower than professional mold remediation. If professional remediation is necessary, we provide a detailed “mold remediation protocol plan” to submit to remediation contractors. By providing this plan they will be bidding on the same scope of work “apples to apples” which can greatly reduce stress and confusion.

"My family has suffered from allergies and asthma for years and we felt our house may be part of the problem.  With the services of IAQ Consultants of Seattle we discovered that we had mold behind much of the sheetrock in the finished basement of our house. It was due to water penetration through the perimeter walls. Valina initially performed indoor air quality testing and discovered the mold, then before we removed the sheetrock she tested it to make sure it didn't have asbestos. With her knowledge, experience and guidance, we were able to safely remove the sheetrock ourselves which saved us a considerable amount of money that we can now use to repair and restore our basement living space.  If testing services are needed, I would strongly recommend IAQ Consultants of Seattle."

"I hired Valina to check for mold & other allergens in my house.  I was very impressed with her knowledge and her neat equipment.  The good news is I don't have mold.  As she was doing her inspection she found two unrelated things I need to fix.  Who knew my deck has serious dry rot.  Thank you Valina!"
