When homeowners hear the word “mold,” they immediately cringe. We certainly don’t blame them.
Mold can really put a damper on your home’s overall vibe, not to mention the safety risks that it possesses. It makes the air harder to breathe and makes whatever room it occupies a hazard.
Therefore, you never want to let mold go for long. Not taking action immediately will only cause the problem to spread––and it will spread rapidly.
That’s where mold remediation comes in. While it’s important to get rid of mold in your home, making sure it never happens again leads to better long-term results.
Let’s get into what mold remediation is, what it isn’t, and what Lamunyon can do for you.
Remediation vs. Removal
Now you may be wondering: what exactly is the difference between remediation and removal? They both sound like good things, certainly. In any case, you will want to be able to tell the difference between the two.
Removal of mold is a bit misleading. The truth is that mold exists in every home no matter what. Getting rid of 100% of the mold in your home just isn’t possible.
Sure, someone can come in and clean up the patches that have egregious mold, but the spores and organisms will still exist. That’s not to say that you’re always in danger, as mold is a natural organism that is going to exist no matter what.
With that said, it’s important to consider remediation to prevent your home from having persistent mold issues. Mold issues occur when mold grows to a point where it begins to put you and your family at risk.
Remediation simply entails reducing the amount of mold in your home, even if it never disappears completely. This keeps infestations from growing out of control in the future.
What Lamunyon Can Do For You
Mold remediation takes time and is divided into several distinct steps. That is why we advise that you consult professionals to tackle the project rather than pick up your tools and try to do it yourself.
When we arrive at your home for an inspection, we will start searching for any pesky mold. If you would like, we can even take a sample to confirm whether or not you have it.
To begin the mold remediation process, we will contain areas in your home that are causing the mold outbreak. This often involves the use of physical barriers that keep the mold spores where we need them to be.
We will then use air filtration to prevent the spores from remaining and turning into fungi. After that, we will go through the affected area and remove the affected materials. We will follow our 11 step process as detailed in writing.
