Can Mold Come Back After Remediation?

For most homeowners, just the thought of having a mold infestation is enough to make their stomachs churn. This is not just because of the present fungus but also because of the potentially long remediation process ahead. 

The last thing contractors and homeowners need is for mold to return after spending so much time and money eradicating it in the first place. 

When done correctly by professionals, mold remediation can effectively prevent mold from returning. 

Of course, mold can enter the home through many different areas and for just as many reasons. While you may have solved one mold problem, there could be another cause of mold growth that was not observed during the first remediation project. 

Lucky for you, Valor Mold Removal scrutinizes every detail to finish off each and every job with a mold-free home.

Why Does Mold Return After Remediation?

The only time mold will return to the same area as it was growing in during pre-remediation is when the source of the mold problem was not originally taken care of. 

This could include: 

  • Broken or leaky pipes
  • Poor insulation 
  • Faulty windows  
  • Cracks in the foundation of the home

Basically, any outlet for water and moisture to enter the home. 

On some occasions, there are multiple sources of water entering the home. If only one issue has been solved, the second, or maybe even third, source of moisture can still contribute to an unhealthy amount of airborne mold spores. 

If all contributing factors are eliminated, so is your mold problem!

What Is Mold Remediation?

Mold remediation is a cumulation of services that mold experts undergo to completely remove all traces of harmful mold from the home. It begins with the initial testing phase; if visible mold patches have started to show themselves, the testing becomes a lot easier. 

Once the levels of mold spores in your home have been properly identified, we can get straight to work fixing the problem! The entire space is contained to ensure mold spores do not travel to other areas of the home. 

Using our chemical-free process, we kill and remove all traces of mold within the containment zone. Removing dead mold spores is vital in preventing future mold growth post-remediation. 

During the demolition phase, Valor Mold Removal will assess each and every surface to determine whether or not they are safe to be in the home. 

Homeowners can expect their rugs, drywall, furniture, and other porous items to be discarded for safety purposes. 

After each surface has been scrubbed clean of mold, our team puts your home all back together! 

Preventing Future Mold Growth

The most important part homeowners play in the mold remediation process is after our work is said and done. Preventing future mold growth in the home can be accomplished in simple everyday steps that can save you the headaches of having to undergo the entire remediation process for a second time. 

If you have noticed condensation forming on and around your windows, it may be time for new windows. Condensation may not seem like a big problem at first, but it can quickly turn into water damage, rot, and mold. 

Running a dehumidifier in your basement, attic, crawlspace, or other areas of the home that have poor air circulation will help remove excess water in the air. As we know, humidity is one of the leading causes of mold growth. 

Having your pipes and foundation of the home checked for cracks or damage will prevent an extreme amount of water from building up without you being aware. 

While mold spores are inevitably going to make their way indoors, it’s important in monitoring just how severe the situation has become.
