“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

You might have noticed companies claim that they can remove mold from your home or business. You might also have heard of companies talk about mold remediation. So what is the difference? 

Microscopic spores of mold exist practically everywhere naturally. When a company claims that it can remove all the mold from your property, that is actually not possible. It is crucial to call a certified mold remediation expert in order to ensure that your mold infestation is properly taken care of.

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.
