“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation
What’s the Difference?
The first step to taking care of a mold problem is realizing what you are dealing with. Since mold spores are all around us, it’s important to understand that mold cannot be entirely eradicated from your environment. Mold spores thrive in moist areas so it will be important to establish where your mold problem is stemming from and then eliminate the source that the mold is feeding off of. Our goal at SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas if to reduce as much of the affecting mold strand as possible and keep it from recurring so you can get back a normal life.

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.
