New Construction Projects are prime places for mold growth at times in the PNW

4/15/2018 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Kitsap County offers a variety of services and one of them is mold remediation. Living in the PNW, we all know that there is a higher amount of moisture in our environment than in many other places, which can cause mold to grow more often and more quickly than in drier parts of the country.  We are aiming to help aid new construction projects with mold that has begun to grow on the new structure mid-project. Protecting you and your home is a priority for us.

A common misconception in construction is that leaving the bones of the structure exposed to the elements is okay. This is false. Leaving any new lumber, studs, beams, or any other building materials exposed to the weather actually begins the process of creating an environment perfect for mold growth and contamination of building materials. Of course some materials will become damp and be exposed during the construction process, but the key is to be vigilant and inspect building materials as they are used. This will help prevent other materials, such as drywall and insulation, from becoming contaminated.

One of the services that SERVPRO of Kitsap County offers is mold remediation: killing the mold spores to prevent further mold growth. In some cases this service is used to clean and eliminate any containments or living bacteria that could cause issues both for the building itself & the people occupying the structure. Our franchise supports both homeowners and builders to ensure both safety and health factors play a big part in the construction process. When you see mold on your work-in-progress we can treat it accordingly to eliminate it completely.

SERVPRO prides itself in using a 100% organic disinfectant that kills 99.99% of germs versus other companies who may try to just get the job done easily by using disinfectants with high ammonia levels, bleach, or other harsh chemicals to eliminate germs. The products we use are made from food-grade plant extracts and essential oils, our anti-microbial disinfectant has NO toxicity warnings on its label. That is because it poses NO health risk toward humans or animals and is safe to use. 

The first thing we do when we arrive to an area in need of mold remediation is enclose the job site. To increase the productivity of our products there needs to be no chance of any interruptions including weather, new moisture, and other elemental factors. Sealing the job site ensures our product will cover all affected areas and will work properly.

If you have a building structure that is showing signs of mold growth, give SERVPRO of Kitsap County a call today. We can help disinfect and eliminate the headache of mold in your new construction project.
