The difference between mold removal v. mold remediation in a Poplar Tent Township NC home is vital for homeowners to understand, as not all mold needs to be outright removed from a house. In many cases after water damage occurs, mold remediation and some basic water damage cleanup
are all you need to keep your home safe for occupants, and to protect that house from future mold damage.
Mold removal refers to actually removing all traces of mold, even cutting away parts of a home’s wall studs, drywall, insulation, floorboards, and the like. Mold remediation finds the cause of the mold, typically a water damage leak in the home, and then addresses that problem, while also containing the mold so that it doesn’t spread. Remediation is a bit different than DIY mold removal, as professional mold remediation involves a thorough cleanup of the most dangerous areas of mold while ensuring the mold problem doesn’t become a health hazard.
