Can Mold Grow After Mold Remediation?

Can Mold Grow After Mold Remediation?

When you have mold problems at home, you need a company that specializes in mold remediation. Dreyers DKI can address that issue with a process that removes even the toughest molds. After remediation, the question some people fail to ask is, will mold grow back after it has been removed?

We'll answer that a little later.

Why Mold Grows in Your Home

Before you can get the answer to this question, you need to know why molds grow. Mold thrives in a moist environment. In your home, that typically is a byproduct of high humidity in the air, pipe leaks, condensation from your AC unit or poor ventilation that results in moist air being trapped inside your home.

Molds often become a big problem when left to grow unchecked. Signs of mold growth include black and yellow spots on walls and ceilings, the onset of unexplainable respiratory illnesses in residents, and a strong musty smell in your home.

Mold Remediation Process

When molds are spotted in a home and a mold remediation crew is called in to help, the first thing that happens is an assessment of the situation. This usually includes:

  • Find the mold growth
  • Assess the reason for mold
  • Assess the severity of the problem
  • Devise a remediation plan
  • Removal molds from the home

These steps are carefully documented to ensure that everything is taken care of. Some mold remediation companies even repair the problem that caused the mold growth in the first place. Some will also offer to perform regular maintenance checks on your home to prevent the possibility of molds returning.

Why Molds Can Grow Back

When mold remediation is done to a home, the mold growths are removed. If the problem that caused the mold growth in the first place is not taken removed, then molds can and will grow back. With a maintenance plan in place, and proper mitigation procedures, the possibility of this happening can be minimized.
