What’s the Difference?
MOLD REMOVAL vs. MOLD REMEDIATION
If you notice mold in your home, getting rid of it is your number one priority. It’s important to know what you’re looking for so you can find the right help for your home. To assist you in your search, here is our guide to the difference between mold removal and mold remediation. It would seem that these all mean the same thing but there are few things that separate these activities.
Since microscopic mold spore exist naturally almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors, removing all mold from a home or business is impossible. Some restoration business advertise “mold removal” and can guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy. Mold removal involves only in the physical of spores present at home.

It includes mold testing, removal, demolition, sanitizing, containment and mold cleaning, depending on the type and location.

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.
