Understanding Mold

The truth is that mold exists almost everywhere. Microscopic spores of mold can be found indoors and outdoors, which means that it’ll never be fully gone. Removing mold entirely from a home is not likely something most reliable mold remediation companies will boast about, as the task is impossible. If any mold remediation companies make this promise, they’re not giving you all the facts.

Consider the following facts about mold:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere
  • Spores are microscopic and they float in the air. They can enter your home through doors, windows, vents or your or AC/heating systems.
  • Mold can also be tracked in by pets or your clothing.
  • It loves moisture. Mold spores can grow quickly into large colonies when exposed to water.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold can return.
  • Mold can produce a strong, musty smell

Find a Local Mold Removal Company

Finding a local mold remediation company might be your best option. While some companies outside of your area may have better reviews, they also have longer commutes, which can cost you more money in the end. Typically, these companies have multiple steps to their mold inspection and cleanup process. It’s important to ask questions and get as much information as possible about how long the process may take and how much it will cost. Finding a local company gives you the the ability to have more peace of mind as it’s more likely they will be able to source their materials locally as well. This usually means less wait time and a faster turn-around.

Getting an Estimate

Getting an estimate and assessment will allow you to gain a better understanding of your mold problem, and the financial cost to its solution. It’s important to compare a few companies, and inquire about their processes. Just because something is more affordable, doesn’t mean it’s better. When dealing with a mold problem, cutting corners is never a good idea.
