Mold remediation is, essentially, the process of cleaning up and/or removing mold from an inside environment, such as your home. Living in the subtropics, such as is the case here in South Florida, mold is very common discovery. Mold requires moisture, or humidity, in order to grow and spread. As any South Floridian knows, humidity is more or less par for the course when it comes to the weather. Practically most of the materials commonly used in the building and construction of homes provide a sustainable surface for the growth of mold.

Mold is quite ubiquitous in its nature. This basically means that it can be found practically everywhere, and is a very common occurrence. In fact, mold spores are typical components of the dust found in homes. Mold can be a potential health hazard, however, when the spores exist in large quantities. Most commonly, they can be responsible for various allergic reactions and problems of a respiratory nature. There are also some molds, referred to as mycotoxins- or toxic mold- that can be especially risky to the overall health of a household.

When it comes to mold remediation, the first step is assessment. By the visual examination of premises, it is determined whether or not mold is present. It also determines the level of growth, and the degree of remediation that is necessary. Generally, the methods used in assessing and detecting mold are non-intrusive. Although more intrusive methods are sometimes needed in order to properly assess the level of contamination by mold in extreme cases.

After assessment comes remediation. The first step is to stop the source or sources of moisture. Afterwards, it is time to remove the actual growth of mold. When it comes to the actual removal of the mold, there are many different methods. However, the mold itself as well as any by-products of the mold can still cause negative health effects, especially if the methods used for cleaning the mold are improper or do not accomplish the task correctly.
