Can Mold Return After Remediation?

At some point or another, you will probably have mold in your home. Mold grows because of excessive moisture in your home, wet wood, water leaks, and other circumstances that create the perfect breeding grounds for mold spores to start growing and reproducing. The longer you let your mold grow, the more hazardous it becomes for yours and your family’s health. Mold can aggravate your family’s allergies and can cause respiratory issues. Professional mold remediation is a great way to remove the mold from your home and keep your family safe, but can mold return after remediation? The short answer? Yes, mold can return after remediation.

Can Mold Return After Remediation?

Why Does Mold Return?

Mold is a fungus and like the vast majority of fungi, the organisms that mold is made up of, live by breaking down moist, rotting organic matter. Mold reproduces via microscopic spores which are always in the air. Everywhere you go, mold spores are in the air. There’s no way to truly avoid them and get rid of them permanently. In small amounts, these mold spores won’t cause adverse effects, but when large amounts of mold begin to grow, and large quantities of spores are released into the air, health issues can arise. If there is moisture in your home, especially wet and rotting wood, carpeting, or drywall, it creates the right environment for mold to begin to grow. Moisture is almost always the epicenter for mold infestation. If an underlying moisture problem wasn’t resolved during your remediation process, eventually your mold infestation will return.

There are things you can do to reduce your chance of mold growing back such as drying wet areas as soon as possible, properly ventilating moisture areas like your bathroom, using mold-resistant building materials, and keeping your indoor humidity between 30 and 60 percent.
