Cleaning and Restoration, the act of restoring a structure or an item to its original condition is broadly divided into two categories: one, when the purpose of restoring something is aesthetic; and two, when the purpose of restoring something is to actually repair or fix the item permanently. For example, if your home is destroyed by fire and you want to make it as beautiful as before, then your Cleaning and Restoration will be focused upon fixing the holes caused by fire. On the other hand, if you are restoring something for your family’s safety or if it has some kind of monetary value, the Cleaning and Restoration will be focused upon fixing that item so that it can be used again or continue to be enjoyed by its intended owner. In the latter case, Cleaning and Restoration are using to restore and fix the item, which is why most household cleaners are also called Cleaners and Restoration.

Cleaning and Restoration differ from mold remediation in the sense that mold remediation deals with the long-term damage that may have resulted from water damage and not just the immediate damage caused by the flood or the fire. Water damage restoration generally deals with clean-up after water damage has been cleaned up. Cleaning and Restoration on the other hand, deals more with restoration, making things look good, rather than making things look perfect. Cleaners usually only do minor carpet cleaning and there is no major attempt made at mold remediation either.
Mold remediation, on the other hand, deals with removing mold that has already begun to grow in affected areas, as well as in other areas of the house where carpets and other absorbent materials were utilized. Carpets, of course, are considered ideal breeding grounds for mold because they are dark and damp. Aside from this, carpets are generally warm and provide an ideal breeding ground for various species of fungi. In the worst case scenario, mold spores have been known to be released into houses through the carpet. Mold restoration, therefore, deals more with cleaning and making carpets and other absorbent materials in a place where molds can’t survive.
