“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation
What’s the Difference?
Since microscopic mold spores exist naturally and almost everywhere you can think of- indoors and outdoors, removing all mold from a home or business is nearly impossible. Many restoration businesses will advertise something like “mold removal” and they will even guarantee to remove all of the mold in the home or business. This is a fallacy. We understand mold and how mold grows. SERVPRO of Walker County has the training and expertise to remediate the mold in your home or business. Our highly trained technicians will respond quickly to help prevent any more growth or spread of mold spores in your home or business. Give us a call today.

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.
