Do I Need Mold Remediation?


Recently, we took a deep dive into the difference between mold removal and mold remediation. With those differences in mind, you might wonder if you need mold removal or more substantial mold remediation. We know southwest Florida residents saw a lot of water damage and mold growth in the last year, so it’s important to understand the key signs you need mold remediation over simple mold removal. 


5 Signs You Need Mold Remediation


Mold remediation is a more complex process than mold removal, but it is critical to the health of your family and home if a major mold problem persists. If you’re wondering if you should schedule mold removal or mold remediation, these are the signs you should opt for full mold remediation with a professional company. 


  • Widespread mold problem

The major difference between mold removal and mold remediation is the amount of mold present. If there is widespread mold in your home or business, you need professional mold remediation services. This usually means there’s significant growth, and it’s critical to find the source of the mold and prevent future growth. 


  • Mold caused damage to the home

Repair is part of the mold remediation process, so if your home requires repair after mold removal, then mold remediation is the way to go. At iMold, we are a full-service general contracting company. This means we are your one-stop shop for completely removing mold and repairing your home or business. We’re proud to offer this service because it makes mold remediation and repair simpler and more cost-effective for our customers. 


  • Recurring mold 

If you had small mold growth removed, but it keeps coming back, that’s a sign you need more comprehensive mold remediation. Remediation finds the mold source and prevents further growth, whereas mold removal simply removes the visible mold. We typically see recurring mold with water leaks and condensation. Keep this in mind as you see water condensation or repair any leaks in your home!


  • Someone in your household experiences mold allergy symptoms

We all know the dangers of ingesting mold over time, so if someone in your household starts showing mold allergy symptoms, it’s time to call a mold remediation company! This is a sign the mold is significant and requires professional attention. A mold remediation specialist will completely remove the mold, treat its source, and provide any necessary cleaning or repairs. You can trust that your family is safe after iMold’s mold remediation service!


  • See or smell mold

Mold often likes to hide, so if you see mold, chances are there’s more mold under the surface. On the other hand, if you smell mold but can’t see it, there’s likely mold growing somewhere in your home. While seeing or smelling mold may not mean a rampant incident, it is cause for enough concern to contact mold remediation services for a mold inspection. If you delay, you may see the other signs above, which could lead to more damage.


I Need Mold Remediation! Now What?


If you answered “yes” to any or all of those reasons for mold remediation, you may be curious about your next step. Despite what you may see online or in stores, combating your mold problem on your own is not recommended. DIY mold removal is potentially dangerous because you can’t be sure the mold problem is completely eradicated. 


A licensed and trained mold remediation service will come to your property and complete a thorough mold inspection. After that inspection inside and outside your property, the mold remediation specialist will provide a detailed report of what mold lives inside your home, the source, and a plan to remove it moving forward. Additionally, an expert mold remediation team will be able to provide the necessary cleaning, repairs, and preventative care to bring your property back to what it once was. You can rest assured that when you select a professional mold company, your mold is gone, and your family is safe!
