“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

What Is The Difference Between Removal and Remediation? 

One important thing to know about mold is that mold spores exist practically everywhere, both indoors and outdoors, naturally. So the concept of "removing mold" is technically impossible. Mold spores don't start trouble unless a source of water is presented, which is why a quick response to your water damage event is so crucial in order to avoid a full-blown infestation. 

Here at SERVPRO of Baytown/Channelview, we understand how mold operates. We have the proper training and certificates to handle a mold remediation job of any size. If you are in need of mold remediation services, don't hesitate and give us a call today!

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.
