“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

Remediation vs. Removal

Mold remediation and mold removal are oftentimes used interchangeably. However, each of these is very different in terms of the process.

Mold removal is actually not possible. Mold is naturally occurring in our environments, both indoors and outdoors, so removing it entirely, isn't an option. Mold removal, as advertised by some mold removal companies, would be the process of getting rid of the mold (as near as the eye can see), but not necessarily addressing the source of the problem.

We specialize in mold remediation. This is taking the mold levels in your home to a natural and normal level, while addressing the problems that caused the mold in the first place.

If you have mold issues in your house, SERVPRO of Midwest City is here to help. We can provide mold remediation and mold removal services that are quick and efficient—and that won't cost you an arm and a leg.

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.
