“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

Remediation is the action of remedying something (in particular of reversing or stopping environmental damage), such as remedying your mold problem. Remedying or solving your mold problem does not mean removing all mold. Our team of experts recognizes that it is impossible to remove all mold from a home or business, but we do solve your mold problem by removing as much mold as possible. We also deodorize your home to get rid of that pesky mold and mildew odor. Our unique solutions and advanced techniques will ensure that mold is no longer an issue in your home or business.

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.
