You know how most hand sanitizing products are going to promise they remove 99.9% of germs, but never really 100%? That is pretty much what you are getting with our mold remediation services. There are certain parts of homes where the presence of mold is essentially inevitable. What we are going to want to do is limit and control the growth of mold in these areas though. Also, monitor it closely to make sure that the mold that is developing is not harmful to you and your family. We realize these statements can leave you with more questions than answers so let’s get right to it!
What Is Going To Determine The Difference Between Removal & Remediation?
We talked about this in our mold removal section. If the type of mold that we are dealing with is not dangerous then remediation can be the best option. Mainly because when we are doing removals we are essentially going to have to remove not only the mold but entire chunks of drywall and things of that nature. Which, in turn, could have been consumed by the mold. The example that we gave on that page, was the crawlspace one. Having tiny bits of mold present in a crawl space may not be something that would warrant a total remodeling of this area!
How Effective Is A Mold Remediation Procedure?
At the time that it is done, we should be able to remove 98% of the mold that is present. The problem is that if conditions in the area are still ideal for mold to continue to develop after a couple of months you can have the same amount of mold present on your property. That is really the issue. We need to take steps to waterproof the area and make sure that the conditions are not present for mold to be able to develop.
Is Constant Mold Remediation Worth It?
Sometimes recurring mold remediation procedures are actually the best way to keep the growth of mold within your home in check. We know that you probably don’t want to have to pay for our guys to come in every so often to get this done. Again, the thing is removing certain vital parts of the home to get rid of the mold can end up being not only more expensive but more troublesome. What we can do is lay out the options for you with costs, and everything and let you make a decision as to what you feel fits you best.
How Long Does Mold Remediation Last?
Kind of staying on the same topic, a lot of people want to know how long they are going to be protected from mold after getting this procedure done. There are a lot of factors that play a role in this though. Are the conditions in that area still ideal for mold development? If they are, it’s going to be a matter of a month or so for things to get back to how they were. What we need to do is improve the conditions to stop mold growth. Things like waterproofing can really help improve the conditions.
