“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

Mold spores, unfortunately, are prevalent in West Palm Beach and throughout Palm Beach County. They are naturally occurring, regardless of the environment, indoors or outdoors. With their microscopic size and ubiquity matched with almost year-round humidity, Florida homes and businesses may be naturally inclined to develop a mold issue. It is nearly impossible to accomplish complete mold removal, however, mold remediation in West Palm Beach is possible! If anyone experiencing a mold problem encounters a business advertising mold removal, they should steer clear of using their services. The fallacy of complete mold removal is overpromised and all too often sold to uninformed customers. Assessment, cleaning, and mitigating future mold growth is apart of the mold remediation process. We utilize our proprietary cleaning products to properly treat mold infections, while removing any potential odors.

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.
