What is the Difference Between Mold Removal and Mold Remediation?
Mold removal is the process of physically or chemically eliminating any visible signs of mold growth from a home.
For mold remediation, the affected areas are disinfected, cleaned, and restored. The source of moisture that contributed to mold growth is also pinpointed and addressed.
Mold mediation is important in order to identify the source of the mold and properly remove and encapsulate it so that it will not continue to spread. When mold is not professionally removed, it often gets spread around and will continue to grow in your home causing further issues.
Our expert team has the specialized equipment and process necessary to make sure that your mold problem is dealt with once and for all.

What is Black Mold?
Black mold can grow in damp homes and cause hazardous effects. It goes by the name Stachybotrys Chartarum and releases spores into the air that can cause harmful effects to people who inhale them. Black mold looks like black slime but the appearance can vary depending on its location in the home.
Symptoms of black mold inhalation include:
- chronic coughing
- repetitive sneezing
- eye irritation
- chronic headaches
- persistent sore throat
If the inhalation continues, residents may find themselves vomiting or coughing up blood. These are dangerous symptoms that people should avoid by having a thorough mold inspection and remediation by ServiceMaster.

Black Mold Exposure Symptoms
Black Mold is known to cause several health issues including headaches, breathing difficulties, skin irritation, allergic reactions, and aggravated asthma symptoms. Therefore, it’s important to hire an experienced professional to assess the situation at the first sign of mold.
