“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

What’s the Difference?
The misconception that mold can be completely removed from a home or business is false.
It’s important to understand that removing all mold from a home or business is not possible due to microscopic spores existing naturally almost everywhere. 
Instead, SERVPRO of East Plano uses proven methods to remediate the area back to its natural levels of mold spores through our certified restoration process. The specific solution depends on the location and severity level - but you're in good hands with us!
We offer comprehensive remediation services designed to get your environment's levels back within normal range.
The process begins with assessment and ends when we can confirm successful remediation has been achieved thanks to our trained professionals who specialize in understanding the science behind molds' growth behaviors!

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.
