SERVPRO of Weakley/Gibson/Carroll Presents: Mold Removal vs Mold Remediation

We cannot see mold spores without magnification. The spores can survive almost anything.

Mold removal is impossible.

 “Mold removal”

  • Get rid of all of the mold.

AND

  • Get rid of all the mold spores.

Mold starts growing within 24 hours of exposure to moisture.

SERVPRO of Weakley/Gibson/Carroll Counties can’t promise the impossible. It CAN promise mold remediation.

SERVPRO of Weakley/Gibson/Carroll Counties is licensed in mold remediation.

 “Mold remediation” 

  • Remove mold colonies.
  • Throw out whatever mold has destroyed.
  • Clean, dry, and disinfect the rest.
  • Identify materials that stayed wet for over 24-48 hours.
  • Throw out those items.
  • Identify moisture sources
    • leaking pipes
    • standing water
    • condensation
    • humidity (40% or higher)
  • Stop the moisture = Prevent mold

Important:

By law, only licensed professionals can remediate large areas. A “large area” is 10 square feet or more.
