The goal of mold remediation is never to kill mold, treat mold, or cover mold up with paint or other solid color coatings. The goal of mold remediation is always to remove mold. Mold that has been killed, treated or covered up can always begin to grow again if moisture reoccurs- even if the moisture is just high humidity. Dead or dormant mold still releases mold spores into the air. While mold must be alive to cause further property damage, dead mold spores – when inhaled – have the exact same effects on people and animals as mold that is alive. Mold can be killed, treated, or covered up, but if it is still in your home all of the health risks associated with mold are still there to. In a post Remediation verification, a visual inspection of all construction materials inside the containment area is conducted to determine whether or not all visible mold growth has been removed. Unfortunately, not all mold remediation contractors are equally as thorough and conscientious about their work.
