When it comes to treating mold in your home, you may not know about the differences between mold remediation and mold removal. In fact, you may use the terms interchangeably. But the two terms describe two different phases in the process of stopping mold from growing in your home. If you’ve recently discovered mold growing in your home, you need to contact the professionals to take care of the problem. At Ram Restoration, we’ve helped many homes and office buildings in the Dayton, Ohio, area with their mold remediation and mold removal needs to have a mold-free space.
Mold remediation is the process of restoring your space so that there’s only acceptable levels of mold in your space. There will still be mold present, but it will be levels that won’t affect the people in your space and stays at a safe level for all occupants of your space. We work to get mold presence to the smallest amount necessary so normal processes in your home or office aren’t interrupted but won’t make you, your family members, or your employees sick from mold exposure.
On the other hand, mold removal is the act of completely removing mold from your space. Mold is always going to exist in your space, so it’s impossible to entirely remove mold from your space. In fact, low levels of mold are common in many different living environments. Instead of mold removal, a mold remediation is performed. With Ram Restoration, you’ll get a mold remediation company that works to treat the mold currently in your space while working to prevent additional mold growth in the future.
Which Comes First
Mold remediation is always the first step we take. We’ll take a look at your space, identify the source of the mold growth, and work to stop the mold from worsening. Additionally, we’ll work to stop mold from growing in the future. If there’s water damage present, we’ll work to restore the space.
Signs of a Mold Problem
Are you concerned about the presence of mold in your home or office? The longer an increased exposure to mold on a regular basis, the more likely you, members of your family, or your employees will experience mold sickness symptoms. The symptoms that people experience will change from person to person. However, many of the common symptoms include stuffy nose, coughing and sneezing, watery eyes, and itchy skin. While these are some of the common allergy symptoms, you know your symptoms. If it’s not a normal time for allergy symptoms, it’s a sign something may be wrong.
Mold remediation and mold removal cover different aspects of getting rid of mold in your space. But they’re two important steps that need to be a part of the plan to prevent mold from coming back in the future.
