Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water.These colonies may produce health effects.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Mold is caused by excess moisture in an area, whether that be your house itself or the items inside your home! The removal of mold is usually very time consuming and expensive!

What To Do If You Suspect Mold

A great place to start if you believe you might have mold in your home, is to call SERVPRO of St. Joseph! We do mold remediation! Mold can not only affect the structural property but also the items within a home so be sure to check thoroughly.


Mold can be prevented if there is proper moisture control in the area. The best plan for you as a homeowner though, is to get to the source before mold begins to appear! If you do not properly know how to clean up water damage, fix leaks, or other related water problems, call an expert! If water is not fully removed from surfaces or items, the chance that mold will grow rises.
