Duvall Indoor Environmental Inspection and Remediation Services
Duvall was founded more than 100 years ago and it’s home to almost 8,000 people. This small city has a rich history, diverse population, and serves as a residential base for people who work in Seattle and surrounding areas. As with most homeowners, residents of Duvall also need to keep an eye on the air quality inside of their house.
Mold thrives in damp areas, so it can affect all cities in the Pacific Northwest. At the same time, lead contamination can also reduce the quality of the air in your house. According to the Department of Healthcare, more than 1 million homes in Washington are contaminated with this dangerous metal.
Mold Inspection & Testing Services in Duvall
Mold is a type of fungus that grows naturally; however, when spore concentrations are too high, these can lower the quality of the air in your home, which can result in allergies and other health problems. By hiring a Duvall mold testing expert, you can ensure that the air in your house is safe and take the necessary steps in case there is a high volume of spores.
A thorough home mold inspection should deliver more than simple lab results. While lab tests help determine the type of treatment that will be used, they don’t tell you the source of the problem. Therefore, having test results forwarded to you won’t give you all the information you need to take care of the problem permanently.
Our team seasoned inspectors carry out a full assessment that includes a lab test as well as an on-site examination that will help determine the root cause. In most cases, excess moisture causes mold development, so our team aims to locate leaky pipes, poorly ventilated areas, and other issues that increase humidity.
In other words, we deliver all the information our clients need to make sure the problem is taken care of once and for all.
Mold Removal & Remediation
It’s important to understand that mold spores are present everywhere. They can be found floating around in any room at any given moment. For this reason, the main objective of a mold abatement project isn’t to take out all the spores from your house.
At Environix, we aim to do much more than deliver a great experience to our clients. Our mold removal service is divided into four high-efficiency stages that keep costs low while still guaranteeing permanent results.
Our Remediation Process
Removing mold and cleaning the affected area doesn’t sound very complicated, but, given the fact that you need a microscope to see spores, this task is actually complex and time-consuming.
We have developed a method that allows us to eradicate the excess mold while protecting the rest of your home. Our mold abatement experts will start by containing the part of your home that needs work. This will allow us to clean and remove damaged materials without spreading more spores all over your house.
After isolating the area, we start removing the affected materials. Note that it’s not necessary to discard all of the items, so our specialists will work with you to determine what belongings you want to keep.
Then, we start the cleaning process. This takes often takes longer than the removal, but it’s also the most critical part of the entire project. Once all the steps are completed, we’ll run different tests to verify the air quality is back to normal.
Working with a Duvall mold specialist is the best way to ensure a permanent solution, so contact us today and our team will be happy to help.
Lead Testing & Inspections
Lead is one of the first materials that humans used to make water pipes. But, in the early 1980s, healthcare professionals observed the detrimental effects that this metal can have on the human organism. Since then, all consumers products that contained this metal have been banned, but the threat of lead contamination is still a reality for folks in Duvall.
Like other metals, lead was used to produce a variety of goods that included fuel, paint, and other common products. That’s why it’s important to carry out lead-based paint testing as well as soil examinations to ensure the safety of all parts of your house.
It’s worth noting that standard lead inspectors are only qualified to gather samples and forward you the results. Our whole team has received the Lead Risk Assessor certification, which means that they can discuss dangers associated with this metal. We can also provide common sense recommendation to remove lead in case the results come back positive.
To ensure that all parts of your house are safe, lead paint testing needs to be conducted on walls, windowsills, floors, other parts of your indoor spaces, and different areas of your outdoors. If you’re looking for a reliable Duvall lead testing company, contact Environix today!
