“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation
What’s the Difference?
Microscopic mold spores exist naturally just about everywhere, both inside and outside. In Florida, the level of mold spores is elevated due to the year-round heat and humidity, which makes removing all the mold spores impossible. A lot of companies that offer mold cleaning services advertise that they do “mold removal” and will even guarantee to remove all the mold, which is inaccurate and a fallacy. Mold abatement, also known as mold remediation, is the proper treatment for the mold in your property. Our team understands mold and how to best treat it for your health and safety. Here at SERVPRO of Vero Beach, we have the expertise and tools necessary to return your home or business to its preloss condition.

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.
