What is Mold?

First, it’s important to understand what mold is not. It’s not something that can be completely removed from your living space because it’s part of nature. Mold is present everywhere, both indoors and outdoors, and can enter your home in many ways: through doors, windows, HVAC systems-even on your pet or your clothing. Once these microscopic spores are exposed to moisture, they thrive and can grow into a real problem in a few short days. You may start to notice a strong, musty odor, and that’s the time to act. Before mold remediation can begin, you need to find and repair the water source of the mold, otherwise, it could return. You can help control the growth of mold indoors by keeping the humidity in the 30%-50% range.

  • FAQ_icon.png
    Do I really need mold remediation?

    Finding mold in your home or business can be troubling, and it’s natural to want to get rid of it fast. Because mold spreads fast and can sometimes be inconspicuous, it’s best practice to call in professionals like SERVPRO to diagnose and address the mold issue for you.

    Can you stay in your house during mold remediation?

    Depending on the severity of the mold in your home, it is sometimes possible to remain in the home during remediation. One of the first things SERVPRO does before beginning remediation work is to erect containment around the affected area so that it is isolated and to limit cross-contamination in areas not affected.

    Can you clean up mold yourself?

    It is not recommended that you try to clean mold yourself, but instead have it handled by professionals who have been trained to do so. You can try to determine the water source that is feeding the mold growth and stop or turn off that source. However, be sure not to disturb the mold in doing so.

    It’s also a good idea to turn off your HVAC system until a professional can inspect and diagnose your mold issue. Keeping the fans running could spread mold spores and increase damage to your property.
