“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

Mold Testing in Smyrna

Shockingly, we are all exposed to hundreds of different mold species every single day, so some mold is a normal part of life. However, when water damage occurs to a property, it creates an environment that can attract mildew and become more susceptible to unhealthy mold growth that can produce toxic allergens that make for an unhealthy living space.

If you are concerned you may have a mold infestation in your home, call the experts at SERVPRO to conduct a comprehensive mold testing in Smyrna. For over 50 years, we have been serving the community of Smyrna in mold testing for both residential homes and commercial properties. We take pride in offering some of the most superior mold inspections in the industry. Our process for mold testing in Smyrna involves air quality testing, swab testing, and other technologies to detect mold on any surface, even if you can’t see it with the naked eye.

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.
