Why You Shouldn’t Hire a Company to Perform Mold Removal

7/26/2018 (Permalink)

A good clean-up & restoration company would focus on mold remediation; not mold removal!

Nobody wants mold in their home, which is why many people hire companies to remove it. After all, when mold growth is left alone, it can cause significant structural damage. But the issue is that mold removal companies don’t actually do what they claim to set out to do: remove mold.

Mold Removal vs. Mold Remediation

There’s a fundamental issue with the phrase “mold removal,” namely that it’s impossible to do. The term implies that the all of the mold spores will be removed from the property, which some companies claim they can do. Mold spores, however, are virtually everywhere—indoors and outdoors. In fact, you will not find an area without mold spores unless you live inside a bubble. Therefore, any claim that mold has been “removed” or “eliminated” is false.

Fortunately, the spores themselves do not cause an issue and are not even detectable by the human eye. What homeowners are actually concerned about is mold growth, which occurs when the spores activate and begin to form colonies. This is when you should hire a mold remediation company.

Conversely, mold remediation focuses on stopping and preventing future growth, as well as returning your property to its original condition. Mold remediation companies are aware that it’s impossible to remove the spores, but instead know that it’s possible to eliminate growth. For this reason, it is strongly recommended you choose a remediation company.
