Mold Remediation

Professional Mold Remediation Services in Spokane and Northern Idaho

Burke's Restoration Mold Remediation

A mold problem in your home can be hazardous to your health, and can also cause lasting damage to your home if left untreated. Mold is very good at hiding in various places, and especially likes dark areas with high humidity. This can make it difficult to discover mold before it is too late and the problem requires the help of a professional remediation team.

At Burke’s DKI, we use advanced mold inspection equipment and techniques to find the mold problem and the ultimate cause of the issue. This helps us find the mold and get rid of the source, not just handle the surface problem.

You can spot mold easily if you notice dark spots around areas of high humidity, or if you smell a musty odor coming from areas of your home. If you notice the presence of mold, the remediation team at Burke’s DKI will quickly arrive on the scene – meaning you will not have to deal with the problem for long.

Using different techniques, we remediate any type of mold, regardless of the size or location of the problem. Our goal is to quickly isolate the issue and prevent the spread of spores to prevent further damage to the rest of your home, and to handle the source of the mold – stopping the growth in its tracks before it can spread further in your home..

Commercial Mold Remediation Services

In addition to helping residential properties, we also handle mold growth in commercial buildings as well. If your building or home is in the Spokane, Coeur d’Alene, Hayden, Post Falls, Sandpoint or surrounding areas, give us a call today.

Mold Containment & Isolation
Mold Containment & Isolation

Mold spores are airborne and will spread throughout the property if not adequately contained before remediation begins. We use negative air pressure machines with HEPA filters to prevent the spread of mold. 

Mold Inspection
Inspection: Finding the Source of the Mold

Cleaning up mold without determining the source is futile. We prioritize finding the source of the moisture - a leaking pipe or roof, for instance – and make the necessary repairs as part of the mold remediation process. 

Mold-Damaged Property Restoration
Mold-Damaged Property Restoration

While mold can destroy the materials and structures of your building, it also will damage your belongings and soft furnishings. Our personal property restoration crew will salvage as much as possible.

State-of-the-Art Mold Equipment

We use moisture meters and other scanners to map out the extent of the mold before beginning to tear out the damaged structures. Our goal is to remove the mold-damaged materials, not the unaffected ones. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Anytime the moisture levels in your home are at 60% or higher, mold can grow. What’s frustrating for many property owners is that they don’t see a puddle on the floor or water dripping from the ceiling. When mold grows, the source of the moisture is usually hidden under floorboards or behind walls.

It could be. Because mold spores are microscopic and airborne, you’ll end up breathing them into your lungs. Depending on the type of mold and how well your immune system functions, you may develop some serious health symptoms that could end up being the result of mold. That’s why a mold remediation company takes mold removal so seriously. The space affected by mold is isolated and contained during cleaning so the spores won’t spread to other areas of the house, and the remediation team stays suited up in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) during the process.

For the majority of surfaces in your home, bleach won’t actually get rid of your mold problem. It’s the “iceberg effect.” Visible mold is usually a small percentage of the actual amount of mold growth. Bleach can’t kill mold on porous surfaces like wood, and while tile or fiberglass surfaces can be cleaned with bleach, often the mold has spread far deeper. The reason why mold remediation companies don’t recommend DIY cleanup isn’t because they want to make more money; they know, in their experience, that a mold problem is usually far more invasive than can be seen with the naked eye. Simply cleaning the surfaces can provide false assurances that you got rid of the mold, only to have it come back time and time again.

Sometimes mold remediation is included if the cause of the mold was a “covered peril” like a burst hot water heater or water damage caused by firefighters extinguishing a fire in your house. Gradual water damage - like from a leaking pipe or hose - will often cause mold growth, but your insurance coverage will usually not cover that by claiming that it was caused by poor maintenance or neglect. If your insurance company denies your claim, you should request an inspection from a mold remediation company who can help you document the source of the mold.

If the inspection/assessment process was able to pinpoint the source and cause of the mold growth, once that source is repaired, you can be relatively confident about the success of remediation. Ask if your restoration technician has the IICRC certification for “Applied Microbial Remediation.” You can also request a “post remediation mold clearance” from a third-party mold inspector to re-test the area for any remaining traces of mold before the area is treated with a sealer or encapsulant to resist future mold growth.
