“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation
What’s the Difference?
Many "here-today and gone-tomorrow" restoration companies will advertise mold removal. You might see it plastered on the side of their truck, "Mold Removal Experts!" But trust us, there is nothing expert about that claim.
The reality might be surprising, but mold isn't ever removed, it remediated. This is true because mold is natural and found almost everywhere, microscopic, floating in and out of your property through windows and duct systems.
Mold remediation work is laser-focused on identifying mold colonies and addressing these areas. First, addressing the source of moisture and then the mold damage itself. At SERVPRO, we have a team of professionals that understands mold growth and how it can be addressed.

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.
