“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

It’s technically impossible to remove every last bit of mold from your home or commercial building. That’s because microscopic mold spores exist naturally almost everywhere, floating in the air and lurking on surfaces, both indoors and outdoors. Here at SERVPRO of West Hartford, our mold experts understand the challenges posed by a mold infestation, and understanding mold is the key to fighting mold. We know the best techniques to address the problem, and we have the most sophisticated technology and products. Call SERVPRO today to assess your situation, and we’ll develop a plan to remediate—not remove—the mold in your West Hartford building.

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.
