“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

What’s the Difference?

While some may speak of "mold removal," that phrase is perhaps too simplistic. Mold spores exist naturally in the environment and are. key part of the ecosystem, helping break down fallen trees and debris in the environment and turning it back into food for the soil. Mold becomes dangerous, of course, when it begins growing within your home. Though many companies promote "mold removal" and even guarantee the complete removal of mold, that is not even possible. Because mold will always exist in the environment, our goal is to remediate mold growth and set your home up for success in preventing mold growth. This involves identifying the water source that may be feeding the growth within your home and then addressing the problem at the root. SERVPRO of Northwest Las Vegas is equipped to remediate any mold problem!

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.
