“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

SERVPRO of South Oklahoma City understands the science behind mold and it's growth potential. Mold spores are microscopic and exist naturally in every environment. It is found both indoors and outdoors and because of this removing all mold from a home or business is next to impossible. However, remediating a mold infestation is achievable. Be cautious when looking for a restoration company, as most companies will advertise the ability to removal all mold, this is not possible. The mold remediation experts here at SERVPRO of South Oklahoma City has the training and expertise to remediate the mold in your home or business properly.

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.
