“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

Mold exists everywhere and not only the mold you see, but it also exists on microscopic levels. Thats why complete removal is impossible, but mold remediation is not. Many cleaning and restoration companies may say they can remove the mold entirely which is false news as we all know mold exist in the air and in water as well as in the cleanest house. That being said SERVPRO can properly provide you with mold remediation services that provide you with non-toxic levels and keep growth to a minimum. Removal would most likely call for removal of the structure which we could do but we recommend the remediation, its cost affective and with the mold remediation process it would be like it never happened.

Understanding Mold

When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic, 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 a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • 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 that odor can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
