“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?


Microscopic mold spores are a natural part of our environment and exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Due to their pervasive nature, it’s impossible to completely eliminate mold from a home or business.

At SERVPRO of Natick, Milford, we understand the realities of mold and mold growth. We recognize that while complete eradication of mold is unattainable, effective mold remediation is not. Our team has the training and expertise to manage and mitigate mold in your home or business.

Our approach focuses on controlling mold levels by identifying and addressing the sources of moisture that facilitate mold growth. Without moisture, mold cannot thrive. We utilize advanced equipment and techniques to detect and remediate mold colonies, preventing their spread and recurrence.

By choosing SERVPRO of Natick, Milford, you are opting for a professional and realistic solution to your mold problems. Our goal is to reduce mold levels to natural, manageable quantities and to prevent future mold issues through effective moisture control and remediation strategies.

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.
