At AdvantaClean of the Capital Region, one of the services we offer is mold remediation. Since we provide this service frequently, we regularly hear some common misconceptions about the mold remediation process and mold damage in general. We want to share these myths with you so that if you do need our mold remediation services, you’re able to recognize it and get the damage taken care of right away.
Myth #1 – Mold is Only a Problem in Humid, Wet Climates
Contrary to popular belief, mold grows almost everywhere throughout the world and in both indoor and outdoor environments. However, mold does tend to thrive best in areas that are moist and dark, such as bathrooms, crawlspaces, and attics.
Myth #2 – Mold Only Exists Where You Can See It
Even if you can’t see any mold growing on one of your home’s surfaces or the growth looks relatively minor, there could still be major mold damage hiding. As part of our mold remediation services, we can inspect your property thoroughly for mold and determine exactly how extensive the damage is.
Myth #3 – Removing Mold is an Easy Job
Although you may believe that removing mold is as easy as grabbing your cleaning supplies and disinfecting the affected area, the mold remediation process can be much more complex. In order to ensure you remove the mold all the way and that it doesn’t come back, it is best to let our team take over the mold remediation process for you.
