How to Get Rid of Mold
First Step: Eliminate Moisture
The best way to deal with microbial growth is to prevent it from happening. If you have suffered from water damage, completing the drying process in 24 or less will significantly reduce the chance for mold to grow and spread. If building materials remain wet, it is inevitable that mold will start to grow. Therefore, addressing and eliminating moisture problems is the critical first step.
Our Mold Removal Procedures
Once mold is present, drying is not enough. Moldy materials must be either removed or decontaminated. This process is called remediation, which means “to remedy” or “to cure.” Proper applications to remove mold will be determined by the size, scope and nature of the mold contamination.
Our team at ServiceMaster of Prescott mold remediation team adheres to the following procedures:
- Using state-of-the-art moisture reading instruments to identify where water is present or hiding

Can I Try DIY Methods For Mold Removal?
We strongly recommend against DIY mold removal for several reasons:
- Exposure to Spores - You can’t always tell if a mold is toxic just by looking at it. While most people probably know black mold is a potential hazard, it is less well known that any color of mold has the potential to be toxic as well. Agitating the area can cause the spores to float up into your respiratory tract.
- Spread of the Mold - Traveling spores can do more than cause an immediate threat to your health. They can also create new patches of mold when they land on the next moist surface.
- Incomplete Cleanup - It’s nearly impossible to tell without a professional inspection where all the mold is actually growing. There can be hidden areas of mold that cause the problem to come back, even when you think you’ve gotten every last patch.
No need to take risks–Just call the experts.
Mold Removal vs. Remediation
Generally speaking, these terms are somewhat interchangeable in that they both refer to eliminating unwanted mold from a business or residence. However, "mold removal" implies the process of eradicating a major mold infestation. "Mold remediation" is a technically more accurate term in that mold is always present inside any building. The ultimate goal is not to totally remove mold, which is impossible, but to "remediate" or bring mold levels down to a normal, healthy presence.
HVAC Mold Removal Near You
Not only can mold growth happen in different rooms and on different pieces of furniture, but it can also occur in an HVAC system, such as a furnace or air conditioner. Common causes of the presence of mold in HVAC units are moisture condescension, condensed moisture in the condensation line or drain pan, or having the wrong sized heating or air conditioning system.
If you notice a foul odor or musty smell in one or more rooms in your home, but you do not see any signs of mold anywhere, you may have a mold issue in your HVAC system. Our HVAC mold remediation team can inspect your heating and AC units and air ducts, clean the unit’s blower motor and evaporator coil, use EPA-registered disinfectant specifically labeled for HVAC use, and apply a mold and mildew inhibitor to all HVAC components.
