One of the scariest things a homeowner can hear is that their home has mold. Mold is dangerous not only because it grows quickly and can infest just about anything near it, but it also has the potential to cause several serious health concerns if not treated effectively and efficiently.

If your home has recently been diagnosed with mold, keep reading to find out the most important things you must know before hiring a company to remove and remediate the mold from your home.

Removal versus Remediation

The first important thing to understand is the difference between removal and remediation.

Mold removal is pretty much just what it sounds like: removing affected areas containing mold. This can include anything from furniture, home items, drywall, insulation, and wood. Removing mold from a home is an important first step in the process, but unfortunately doesn’t encompass a total remediation.

Mold remediation includes the removal of mold but also goes a necessary step further to ensure the mold doesn't immediately return. Remediation involves cleaning and sterilizing the location and identifying the mold's source. By properly eradicating the mold, it cannot grow and continue to infect your home.

Types of Mold

When it comes to mold, there’s often confusion or difficulty understanding the risk and danger mold presents. Several different types of mold can grow in your home. We’ve put together this helpful article so you can get a better grasp of what mold infestation in your home may look like.

Mold thrives when there is a water or moisture source nearby, so it is essential to make sure your home is dry. Mold is also invasive, and if not treated properly to ensure complete eradication, it will quickly and sneakily find a way to keep growing.

When you hire a mold remediation company, you need to be absolutely sure that the company has in-depth experience when it comes to mold. Mold spores are microscopic and aren’t typically noticed until enough spores have grown to become visible. It would be best if you only trusted an expert to identify the remaining mold.
