The terms mold remediation and mold removal are used interchangeably, but they’re two completely
different processes. Here’s how they differ.
What is Mold Removal?
Mold removal is the process of physically removing mold spores. Removing could mean simply
cleaning the affected area without eliminating the main problem or identifying the cause of mold
growth. It’s difficult to prevent mold growth, but it can be controlled.
Importance of mold removal
Mold spores can trigger asthma and other respiratory problems and allergic reactions. And yet, some
molds don’t pose any danger to your health. Nevertheless, it’s difficult to distinguish between benign
and bad molds by simply looking at them. That’s why it’s essential to remove mold immediately.
To prevent mold growth, fix leaks, control moisture, and limit condensation in your home. It’s also a
good idea to clean damp areas regularly.
Hiring a professional like Jones Dry Right ensures that the mold colonies in your home will be
eliminated. They wear protective gear like gloves, respirators, and goggles during the mold removal
process so that you can entrust the job to them.
