Chattaroy, WA Mold Damage Remediation
With two prominent bodies of water passing through the immediate area, Little Spokane River and Deer Creek, Chattaroy contends with conditions that could lead to flooding or higher humidity throughout many seasons of the year. Humid summer months are expected, despite average temperatures rarely exceeding the mid-70s. If you suspect that mold might exist in your home, environmental testing is possible by our SERVPRO mold hygienist and remediation professionals. Knowing if this threat exists can ensure that the appropriate actions get taken to reduce the migration of these organisms.
Mold Damage Cleanup for Chattaroy
Larger structures like the institutions that make up the Riverside School District can become quickly damaged and overwhelmed by mold organisms under the right conditions. Cleaning up after these emergencies begins with determining the extent of the damage and creating a specific remediation strategy for the damaged location. Deteriorating materials like drywall and wood can require removal and discarding to create a stable, clean base for reconstruction and repairs. Often remediation seeks to remove only the active colonies in a damaged area, which can involve several strategies, such as:
- Soda blasting
- Controlled demolition
- Surface cleaning
Efficient Mold Odor Removal in Chattaroy Homes
Odors are a common staple of mold colonization and can make normal life challenging for house occupants. Deodorization is one of the final stages of restoration that utilizes multiple tools and instruments, including thermal foggers, air scrubbers, and ozone machines.

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because it’s impossible to remove all mold from a house or business; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the 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 - (509) 474-9144
The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask a series of questions to help us determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel.
Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment
We carefully inspect your property for visible signs of mold. Mold feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view. We use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.
Step 3: Mold Containment
To keep the mold spores from spreading further, we will use various mold containment procedures. Our professionals may use physical barriers and negative air pressure to isolate the contaminated area and to help prevent the mold spores from spreading through your Chattaroy, WA home or business. Also, we’ll turn off the property’s fans and heating and cooling systems 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
Depending on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mold remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing
SERVPRO of Northeast Spokane 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 Chattaroy, 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.
