Differences Between Mold Remediation And Removal
Extended exposure to mold can adversely affect your family’s health and lead to extended problems. If you have evident mold in your home, it’s important to know what service you need to properly address the problem. Mammoth Restoration, a comprehensive restoration company in the Flagstaff area, discusses the differences between our two most popular mold solutions below:
What Is Mold?
Mold is essentially fungi. Different kinds of mold grow in different environments, and unfortunately mold spores don’t die off in dry environments. Rather, they remain dormant and become active in humid conditions. This means that mold will be more common in homes that require water damage restoration or those located in particularly humid areas. Fortunately, there are ways to get rid of mold in your home.
What Is Mold Removal?
The truth is mold removal and remediation are, by degrees, both part of the same process. Because spores are found everywhere, they are impossible to truly remove or eradicate. Mold removal is essentially the removal of mold growth. Dormant spores will continue to grow back if the overall environment stays damp. Keeping the area dry is an essential step, but properly dealing with the problem requires mold remediation and restoration services in Flagstaff, AZ.
What Is Mold Remediation
Mold remediation is a multi-stage process that brings large-scale mold growth down to regular conditions. An example would be mod containment as a part of emergency restoration services after extensive flooding. Steps include:
- Inspection – assessment and sampling
- Containment – sealing off areas of the building to prevent the spread of spores
- Filtration – efficient filters in HVAC systems and HEPA-filtered vacuums, for example
- Clean-up – mold colony cleanup with antimicrobial and anti-fungal cleaners and removal of porous surfaces with deep mold growth
- Sanitization – house sanitization, including furniture, carpets, curtains and other materials.
