When there’s mold in your home or business, you have two options in front of you: mold removal and mold remediation. But what’s the difference between the two? And which is the better option? Read on to learn more.

Mold Removal

Mold removal is just as it sounds—it’s when you physically remove the mold in your building.

Of course, it’s impossible to remove all mold. This is because mold spores are inherent in our environment. However, mold because a problem when the spores settle and grow onto a damp spot.

The mold removal process will work to remove this mold, but it is often not enough.

Mold Remediation

Mold remediation is a far more thorough process than just mold removal. That’s because remediation involves not only removing the mold, but testing, demolition, sanitizing, containment, and mold cleaning. You get to the bottom of what type of mold is growing, why it grew, and what you can do to not only remove it but prevent it from returning.

If you want to truly fix your mold problem, mold remediation is the way to go. Mold removal will work in the short term, but it does not fix it for the long term. Mold remediation digs deeper, helping you to fix and prevent mold in your home or office.
