“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation
What’s the Difference?
Mold naturally grows everywhere and it is impossible to completely remove from any property. Mold spores are microscopic, so they exist naturally almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors. Many restoration businesses advertise "mold removal", but we understand the difference between removal and remediation. We can't guarantee that we can completely get rid of mold, but we can use our SERVPRO cleaning products and processes to remediate the mold issue. SERVPRO of Northwest Knoxville can guarantee that our remediation process will clean your property and personal items from the visible large amounts of mold that are harmful. The key is to prevent mold growth by keeping environments dry and free of moisture.

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.
