If you have looked around these areas and don’t see mold chances are it is hidden and a mold inspection Bellevue specialist will be needed to be called upon so they can do sample testing throughout the home or property.
Once this is done the specialist will come up with what is called a remediation plan or action plan. This is done after they have surveyed the area and deduced how bad the mold problem is. At that point they can determine which measures need to be taken to remove the mold.
