“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

Since microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere naturally, indoors and outdoors, complete mold removal from a home or business is impossible.  Many mold remediation businesses advertise mold removal and guarantee to remove all mold, but this can’t happen.

We understand mold.  We have a Texas Mold Remediation Contractor License, and we’ve successfully completed mold remediation in hundreds of properties.  We’ve performed mold removal in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex, including Waxahachie, Ennis, and Red Oak.  We can help you, too.

If you see or suspect mold on your property, give us a call.  We provide free mold inspections.

Understanding Mold

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.
