“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

Complete removal of all mold is impossible. That’s because microscopic mold spores exist naturally almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors. You can eliminate a lot of mold in your home or elsewhere but anyone who says you can remove all mold or advertises “mold removal” instead of "mold treatment" is not giving you the facts. SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield understands mold, mold growth, and mold remediation. For many clients, we have performed mold remediation successfully. Call us today for an assessment of your mold situation. For more on how we can help, read below.

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.
