“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation
What’s the Difference?
Complete mold removal isn’t possible. Many companies use the terms “mold removal” and “mold remediation” interchangeably, but if anyone promises absolute mold removal, know it isn’t possible.
- Mold is a natural part of the environment.
- Mold is necessary. Penicillium Mold is used to create the antibiotic Penicillin!

Mold becomes a problem when an infestation occurs and causes mold symptoms or toxic mold (Stachybotrys) grows. In these situations, professional mold remediation is necessary.

Do I Need Mold Cleanup?
If left alone with a source of food, mold will continue to grow. Eventually, the mold will eat the surface it is on, including construction materials. We recommend mold removal from a licensed Texas mold remediation company if:
- If you visibly see mold.
- You or another person staying in the Dallas property is experiencing mold symptoms.
- You had previous water damage that was not remediated professionally.
- If you had a prolonged, undetected roof leak or pipe leak.
- If you attempted DIY mold remediation unsuccessfully.
- If you find mold on your clothes or other textiles. These are remediated using the Esporta Wash System.

When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Consider the following mold facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic, float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, and that odor can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
