Knowing the differences between mold remediation versus mold removal will significantly help your mold growth situation. This article will give a brief overview of each one’s processes and go into detail about which one you should go with when you have a mold problem.

Mold Remediation

Mold remediation focuses on bringing mold levels down to its natural levels. Mold remediation is essential when you start to notice mold growth, generally due to previous water damage, that can harm your home and your family’s health. 

The trusted mold remediation company that you choose will take steps to test the air quality surrounding the mold growth areas for spores, isolate these areas, filter out mold spores, and clean with antifungal and antimicrobial agents. The last step requires you to sanitize your home by cleaning your clothes, items, and furnishings. Mold remediation is best when you have detected mold growth, and then you tackle it early on.

Mold Removal

Mold removal becomes necessary when there is significant mold growth that will or is already affecting your health. The problem lies in areas of the home with excessive moisture issues, usually due to a leak or extensive water damage that has gone without attention. Even though it has a similar process to mold remediation, mold removal is more invasive in which your drywalls may have to be cut down, rebuilt, and repainted. The old affected drywall would have to be properly disposed of to prevent more mold accumulation. Mold removal is best when there is a substantial and hazardous mold growth in your home that is a danger to you, your family, and your home.
