What Is Mold Remediation?

The word “remediation” means to fix or remedy something that is not right. It often refers to reversing something causing environmental damage. So mold remediation is the act of fixing the internal damage caused by the presence of mold, remedying a property and returning it to a state where mold is no longer causing a health hazard.

While it is true that mold removal is an essential part of the mold remediation process, the real goal of a legitimately experienced and professional mold remediation company is to return mold to normal and safe levels, since air borne mold spores can never fully be 100% removed from any property or location where moisture and oxygen exist. What Andre Abajian of SoCal Removal will do is eliminate those toxic spores that are not commonly found inside indoor environments and significantly reduce your mold spore exposure of indoor type spores.
