Mold is an inescapable part of life and can be found everywhere. There are both good molds and bad molds, with some even being beneficial to the environment. However, when mold is found indoors, it is typically not a good sign. Mold damage is an unsightly mess that can be hard to get a handle on in your home or business. A small bit of mold in one area can spread easily throughout your property as the spores travel through the air. You may think that you have removed all the mold damage only to find that you treated the visible mold, not the root or source. Hidden mold doesn’t take too long to continue spreading and being a nuisance. Patriot Disaster Specialist understands the importance and urgency of mold removal and are dedicated to safely and completely ridding your home or business of the offending mold issue.

Mold Mitigation vs Mold Remediation
It doesn’t take long for mold to find a wet and humid happy place in your home or business and begin to flourish. Whenever mold is detected, the immediate objective is to get rid of it. Usually this involves a combination of different techniques to achieve complete results. Mold removal, mold remediation, mold mitigation are often used interchangeably but each have their own significance. However, they all make up the entire process.
Mold is a natural fungi that can be found everywhere, though it is not always the easiest to track down within the property. To survive, mold requires a water source, which is normally located within the kitchen, bathroom or basement settings. The source is most likely a leak from a pipe within a wall or from a vulnerable area in the roof. It only takes 24-48 hours for new mold to develop. Exposure to mold is not only unpleasant to look at and smell but it can have adverse effects on the health of anyone who comes in and out of the property.
Since mold is an ever present organism, there is no true way to remove every single entire trace of mold. Even, if it can be mostly removed from a certain area, spores may reproduce at another time. Mold can lay harmlessly dormant but become active when moisture and humidity trigger it to become active. When a professional company performs mold removal, they will be removing the visible mold from the affected area so that it is no longer able to be seen. This can include removing any material that has come into contact with the offending mold such as insulation or drywall.
Mold remediation is the broader and more encompassing term that refers to the cleanup and treating of surfaces that have been exposed to mold. A mold inspection and mold testing may be initially necessary to determine if mold is actually present and if so, the severity and type, which will determine techniques and which equipment is needed. The water source feeding the mold will certainly need to be located and remediated. Any areas that have been affected will need to be treated or cleaned to ensure sanitization. Porous and non-porous materials will need to be evaluated and throughly cleaned. The indoor air quality will also need to be assessed to ensure that levels have returned to a more stable condition. Many do not understand that mold growth can be an intricate process to handle without a professional. If not handled correctly, mold can continue to be a problem until the root cause, typically a leak, is corrected properly. Mold can also be toxic and needs to be disposed of safely and accordingly. Trusting in the professionals can be a worthwhile investment to ensure your home or business is free of unhealthy and unsightly mold.
