Find Out If You Need Mold Remediation Services

With the high humidity levels here in Florida, mold problems should be a concern for every homeowner. Mold can spread through a property in just a few days, producing allergens and lung irritants that can cause trouble for the young, old, and those with respiratory ailments. Use this guide to learn more about mold and to see if you need mold remediation services in your home.

What Exactly Is Mold?

Mold is a fungus. These microscopic organisms can be white, black, orange, purple, or green. People are exposed to mold every day, which is typically harmless in small quantities. Mold thrives with moisture and an organic food source. In large quantities, such as mold colonies, mold can be harmful to your health and can damage your home.

Mold has a musty smell to it. You may smell it before you see it if it is hiding in walls or under carpeting. The moment you see mold on your home structure or carpeting, other than a little on bathroom tiles, you should contact a company that specializes in mold remediation services to inspect the extent of your mold problem.

Mold Remediation Services Vs. Removal Services

Mold spores exist practically everywhere — indoors and outdoors. This makes it virtually impossible to remove all mold from a home. That’s why you should be wary of companies promoting mold removal rather than remediation. The goal is to control mold, since total removal is virtually impossible.

The Process for Mold Remediation Services

The first step in mold remediation services is an assessment of mold damage. Next, containment procedures are used to prevent further spread. To prevent further spread, power HEPA filter vacuums are used while mold and mold-infested materials are removed from the home. It may be necessary to restore a damaged home structure, such as torn-out drywall and carpeting.
