Mold is a common issue and concern for residents and business owners. Mold is also resilient; needing only moisture, warmth, and organic materials to thrive, colonies can quickly take root in your home or business. There are thousands of different species of mold, over a hundred of which have been proven to be toxic to humans.
What Are the Dangers of Mold?
Some species of mold can produce toxic substances called mycotoxins, which are likely to cause severe health problems. Individuals exposed to mold can suffer from a number of ailments, such as respiratory symptoms and asthma, especially in individuals who had previously displayed no asthmatic symptoms. Mold can also be a sign of a larger problem. If a pipe in your home or business is leaking, mold will likely take advantage of the moist environment and begin to grow.
Killing mold or drying it out is not enough to eliminate risk. Mold must be handled by professionals who can ensure its proper removal and complete eradication, as even dead mold can cause illness. If mold is detected on your property, it’s important to have it removed quickly in order to limit the risk to residents or employees, especially those with breathing disorders or allergies.

What is the difference between mold removal and mold remediation?
Mold removal and mold remediation are terms often used interchangeably, but they describe two different approaches to mold growth.
Mold removal involves removing mold growth from surfaces in your home or business. This may include cutting out affected drywall, removing moldy carpeting, and cleaning mold from hard surfaces. While mold removal can help to eliminate existing mold growth, it does not address the underlying cause of the mold growth, which is usually excess moisture or humidity.
Mold remediation removes existing mold and addresses the underlying cause of mold growth. The mold remediation process involves identifying and fixing the root cause of the moisture problem causing mold growth in your property. The process includes:
- Repairing leaks
- Improving ventilation
- Using dehumidifiers to lower humidity levels
Once the underlying moisture problem is addressed, the mold is removed, and steps are taken to prevent future mold growth.
