“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

Mold Testing in Sandy Springs

Surprisingly, you are exposed to hundreds of mold species every single day even though you may not know it. When flood or water damage occurs to a property, it increases the risk to attract mildew and create an environment where mold can escalate and grow, producing allergens and irritants that can cause unhealthy breathing air.

If you suspect you have a mold infestation in your home, you can rely on SERVPRO to conduct the most comprehensive mold testing in Sandy Springs. Ever since 1967, we have been serving the community of Sandy Springs in mold testing for both homes and commercial properties. With over 50 years of experience, we tout some of the highest quality mold inspection services in the industry.

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.
