What Is the Difference Between Mold Removal and Mold Remediation?

Mold removal is the process of physically removing the mold from impacted surfaces. This process consists of using physical scrubbing and cleaning techniques, as well as specialized vacuums to remove the mold. It is important to note that mold removal does not address the source of the mold, nor does it prevent the mold from returning in the future.

Mold remediation, on the other hand, is a more comprehensive process that involves not only the removal of the mold, but also the identification and elimination of the sources that caused the mold. This process involves a thorough investigation of the source of the mold, such as water damage, poor ventilation, and/or inadequate insulation. Once the source of the mold is identified, steps are taken to remediate the mold, such as sealing water-damaged areas, improving ventilation, or adding insulation. In addition, mold remediation also includes preventative measures to ensure that the mold does not return in the future.

ServiceMaster's Mold Inspection Process

Our mold inspections involve a comprehensive assessment of your property to identify any mold growth and determine the extent of the damage. Here are the steps involved in a typical mold inspection:

  1. Visual inspection: The inspector will conduct a thorough visual inspection of your property to identify any visible signs of mold growth. They will inspect all areas of your property, including attics, crawl spaces, basements, and HVAC systems.

  2. Moisture detection: Moisture is the primary cause of mold growth, so the inspector will use specialized equipment to detect any areas of moisture or water damage in your property.

  3. Sampling: The inspector may collect air and/or surface samples to determine the type of mold present and the level of contamination. These samples are sent to a laboratory for analysis.

  4. Report and recommendations: Based on the inspection findings, the inspector will provide a detailed report outlining the extent of the mold growth and recommendations for remediation. The report may also include suggestions for preventing future mold growth.

  5. Remediation plan: If mold growth is identified, the inspector will develop a remediation plan outlining the steps necessary to remove the mold and prevent its recurrence. The remediation plan may include structural repairs, moisture control measures, and other strategies to prevent future mold growth.

A mold inspection is a critical first step in identifying and addressing mold growth in your property. We pride ourselves on assisting our customers in protecting their health and their home. Give our team a call to learn more!

You Have Questions & We Have Answers

  • How long does mold remediation take?

    Mold remediation can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks depending on the severity of the infestation. The length of time it takes to complete the process depends on the size of the affected area, the type of mold, and the cause of the mold growth. 

    If the mold is confined to a small area, it can usually be removed in a matter of days. However, if the mold is spread out over a large area, it could take several weeks to complete the remediation process. In addition, the type of mold that is present can make a big difference in how long it takes to remove it. For example, some types of mold are more resistant to treatments than others and may require more time to remove.
  • Is mold remediation dangerous? 

    Mold remediation can be a dangerous process, depending on the type and extent of mold growth. Mold can produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, toxic substances, known as mycotoxins. If mold remediation is not done correctly, it can further contaminate the environment, leading to greater health risks. 
    In general, mold remediation requires the use of special equipment to contain and remove the mold from the contaminated area. This may involve the use of protective gear such as gloves, masks, and respirators to protect the person doing the remediation from the potential health hazards of mold exposure. In addition, the use of dehumidifiers and air filters may be necessary to reduce the amount of airborne mold spores.
