“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation
What’s the Difference?
Mold is a microscopic organism and it literally exists everywhere. But When it comes to mold growth, that is a different situation. While there is mold everywhere, it takes a special set of circumstances to foster the reproduction or growth of mold in your home or business. Once this occurs the next step is proper mold remediation, not mold removal. Removing mold implies that you can rid an environment of mold entirely, which is not true. Many restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold. We here at SERVPRO of Brickell understand mold and the science behind its growth potential and we have the training and expertise to remediate it from your Key Largo home or business.

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.
