“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

SERVPRO of Marine City/Romeo (586) 336  7373 is a locally owned business. We have family in these communities and know the everyday worries about the health and happiness of our family members. One such substance that could affect one's health in a home is mold. Mold is found both indoors and outdoors being able to enter your home through open doorways, windows, vents, and heating/air conditioning systems. It grows with a great deal of moisture, which can be due to leaks in roofs, windows, pipes, flooding, and poor ventilation in attics. Mold loves to grow on paper products, ceiling tiles, and wood products. It can spread throughout a property in as little as 48 hours. Since mold can produce allergens and irritants, calling us as quickly as possible to inspect and clean up your mold problem can remove any health hazards from your home and keep your mind at peace. If mold is found, we have the training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation. SERVPRO of Marine City/ Romeo has expert technicians to clean and preserve your precious mementos that cannot be replaced. Call us at (586) 336-7373 and we will respond quickly to control and restore the infested area.

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.
