Mold Removal vs. Mold Remediation
When you spot mold in their home, your immediate reaction might be to call a home restoration company. Mold can cause severe breathing issues, and people with allergies and asthma are especially at risk.
Once you’re on the phone with your home restoration specialist, your impulse may be to tell them to get rid of the mold entirely. While a company like Dreyer’s DKI can clean and remove the patches of your house affected by mold, literal mold removal isn’t possible. Mold spores are always present in your home, and it is up to you as a homeowner to ensure your home’s environment isn’t conducive to allowing mold to spread.
If you have visible signs of mold on your walls or ceiling, it’s a sign that mold levels in your home are above average and could impact your health. Mold spores are constantly making their way into your home, whether through open windows, your A/C unit, your clothes, or your pet. Humidity allows mold spores to turn into fungi. Aside from maintaining a clean home, to keep mold from growing and spreading, you need to check your home's humidity level and make sure it is no higher than 45%. Make certain air is flowing freely through all rooms of the house and fix any leaks in your home immediately. If you’re repainting the house, you can add mold inhibitors to your paint. You can also limit mold in your bathrooms by using mold-killing cleaning products.
Mold Remediation is when a company like Dreyer’s DKI returns mold levels back to natural levels. It all starts with a comprehensive inspection in which we sometimes partner with an industrial hygienist to identify the source and types of mold. Our certified technicians will perform specific mold protocols to eliminate the source of the mold and remove any existing mold. Finally, we’ll sanitize all infected areas to help ensure the mold doesn’t grow back.
Dreyer’s DKI has the resources and expertise to remove mold so you can live in the clean and healthy home you deserve. With over 40 years of experience, we have a longstanding track record of tackling mold. Don’t let mold feel welcome. Give us a call today!
