“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

What's the Difference?

Mold removal is nearly impossible. Mold exists indoors and outdoors because moisture is inevitable, and moisture is mold’s natural food source. To completely remove mold from a home or business, you would have to physically remove all mold spores and remove all moisture from the atmosphere. Water vapor and droplets will always exist inside your home or business, so what you are really looking for is mold remediation. 

Mold remediation is taking a mold infested property and restoring it to a habitable environment with natural levels of mold. Remediation is necessary when a property has disastrous and unhealthy levels of mold. SERVPRO of Stone Oak has the mold remediation specialists who can safely and effectively bring your home’s mold levels back to an unharmful state.

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.
