Mold in the home? Resolve mold problems for long-term
Mold doesn’t discriminate – give it the things it needs to thrive and it will do just that in any room in the house. Mold needs oxygen, warmth, moisture as food source and a short 24 to 48 hours to become an issue.
At Polar Tiger, we’re committed to assisting residents who are experiencing mold problems, including in the following areas of the home:
The smallest leak can create a serious issue in your attic, because most homeowners rarely get into their attics and a problem can go unnoticed for months. Sore throats, itchy skin and asthma flare ups are all symptoms that the attic has a mold problem. A bad odor is another clue. At Polar Tiger, we will make a visual inspection of your attic, test affected areas to reveal exactly what type of mold it is, and carry out our customized removal process.
Basements are often the most damp places in the home, which leads to a mold in a variety of strains. Basement mold will range from very toxic to less toxic, but none of it is healthy. When your basement is subjected to high humidity levels, mold thrives, and as much as you scrub away at it, it will always come back. At Polar Tiger, we’re licensed to inspect basements for mold, test it and remediate it with our proven methods.
Crawl spaces are even less visited than attics, which means mold proliferates. It’s almost always an unlit space, and if mold doesn’t get exposure to ultraviolet light, it will thrive. Some studies indicate that as many as 60 percent of home crawl spaces have mold in them. At Polar Tiger, we have the technology to look into all of your crawl space to fully inspect for mold. We also have the technology to effectively remove the mold.
Residential mold services
Stachybotrys, Cladosporium, Alternaria and Aspergillus/Penicillium – you might not have heard of these types of mold, but they are everywhere. Wherever there is moisture, they’ll grow. Sick building syndrome is often caused by dangerous types of mold that get into the air and are breathed in by people in the moldy home or building.
At Polar Tiger, we’re committed to offering residential mold services that keep your home healthy. The following is just a sample of our offerings:
Mold problems can not only affect your health, they can also reduce the value of your property. Without a trained expert performing the work, the mold may not be completely removed, or it may simply grow back in a few months.

We offer safe, effective mold prevention solutions that are guaranteed to provide you protection from mold.
Stachybotrys chartarum, as it’s known in the scientific community, is black mold and it is toxic. It feeds on household materials like carpet, subfloor and drywall. Exposure to it leads to irritated eyes, chronic coughing, fatigue, rashes and persistent headaches.

What to do when buying or selling a house with mold?
If you’re selling a house with mold, be prepared to see once-interested buyers turn away when they find out about the issue. They have the right to be so cautious – mold can be dangerous.
It’s not unusual for a home buyer to file a lawsuit against the seller if the mold issue was not revealed during the purchasing process. The best course of action is to have an inspection specifically for mold completed before listing the home. If mold is found, bring in a professional mold remediation company to tackle the problem.
How much does professional mold remediation cost?
The price of having mold removed from your home depends on the type of mold, where it’s located and how much of the home is impacted by it.
At Polar Tiger, we offer a free inspection to get the process started, giving the homeowner an idea of how extensive the problem is. We can devise a plan on how to remediate the mold at that point and offer a more practical determination of the cost of getting rid of it.
