“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

Mold Remediation, Not Removal for Coral Springs Properties

When a homeowner in Coral Springs comes across a mold growth on the wall of a bathroom, the first impulse is to wipe it up and be done with it. Unfortunately, that step can exacerbate the fungal infestation that can now spread.

Mold Spore Disruption Increases Colonization and Potential Damage

Mold is a microbe that combines with others of its species to form those thread-like hyphae which anchor onto a food source--your favorite piece of furniture or carpet to contents stored in a box in the crawlspace below the living area. They feed on the organic material, slowly degrading it. The best move is to call us, SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland to "remediate" the damage.

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.
