Mold Removal or Mold Remediation? What’s the Difference?

Since microscopic mold spores exist naturally almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors, removing all mold from a home or business is impossible.

Mold remediation focuses on getting mold levels back to normal, natural levels.

Understanding Mold

Know that when water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start to grow within as little as 48 hours. You must take the following mold facts into consideration:
  • The fact that mold is present almost everywhere and anywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are tiny, microscopic things that float unseen in the air, and can 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. These spores can proliferate into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants and potentially cause other ill health effects.
    • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed and eliminated. Otherwise, the mold may return due to the continued and uncontained water supply.
    • Mold will often produce a strong, musty odor, and that odor can be helpful to follow and it can lead you to your possible mold problem areas.
    • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Be sure to keep indoor humidity below 45 percent as a cautionary mold preventative.
