When homes and businesses suffer mold damage, it is easy to become overwhelmed when researching the services and personnel required to restore life to normal. In your research, you will likely come across terms like abatement or remediation and need clarification on which to get the process going in the right direction. While it might seem interchangeable, there are some key differences that you should consider. 

Lightspeed Restoration is equipped to provide abatement or expert mold remediation for Jacksonville homes and businesses. As overwhelming as the discovery of this organism in your home could be, we are here to help you through every step of the process, beginning with what your property needs today. Let’s start with addressing the differences between abatement and remediation. 

Mold Abatement Services 

Regarding abatement, this refers primarily to reducing or removing something. Abatement focuses most on stopping the mold growth and the movement of this mold, effectively eliminating future issues. The abatement would include removing contaminated building materials that could serve as a launching pad for more widespread colonization. Abatement is often a component of the overall remediation and restoration spectrum by Lightspeed technicians.

While mold abatement may seem viable, it only removes visible mold without addressing the root cause. This need is where mold remediation comes in. With mold remediation, you remove the mold, identify the underlying problem, and prevent its recurrence. The most significant conducive condition for mold proliferation is moisture. Sources of water and dampness must be eliminated. This comprehensive service ensures your home or business is free from mold and damaging effects. Mold can spread to any organic material, including walls, ceilings, and carpeting. Therefore, you must seek mold remediation services to ensure your space is safe and healthy.

Abatement is a very literal step to eliminate the materials and contents directly impacted by spreading mold colonization, but remediation goes further. Our remediators understand the importance of restoring the property to pre-mold condition, including valuables and keepsakes. This caring approach restores normalcy of your daily life, a crucial element in complete recovery after a compromising disaster. This process includes:

  • Inspection and Assessment

  • Mold Containment
