Understanding Mold

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mould and mould remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mould from a building. This is a fallacy. Mould spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these facts:

  • Mould is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mould 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 on a pet.
  • Mould spores thrive on moisture. Mould spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins. 
  • Before mould remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mould may return. 
  • Mould often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mould problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mould growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

The Mould Remediation Process

Every mould damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mould remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:

Step 1: Emergency Contact - (416) 236-0660

The mould cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask a series of questions to help us determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel.

Step 2: Inspection and Mould Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the mold damage by carefully inspecting your property for visible signs of mould. Since mold can be hidden, we use various technologies to detect mould and hidden water sources. 

Step 3: Mould Containment

To keep the mould spores from spreading further, we will use various mould containment procedures. Our professionals may use physical barriers and negative air pressure to isolate the contaminated area and to help prevent the mold spores from spreading through your Brampton, ON home or business. Also, we’ll turn off the property’s fans and heating and cooling systems to prevent the spread of mould.

Step 4: Air Filtration

We use powerful air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, and other filtration equipment to remove microscopic mould spores out of the air. This air filtration process and our mold containment process help to prevent the spread of these mould spores while the mould remediation is in process.

Step 5: Removing Mould and Mould-Infested Materials

Depending on the amount of mould growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mould remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mould colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.

Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing

We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mould, using a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and disinfect your belongings. We’re also trained to remove odours and provide deodourisation using fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Brampton, ON home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mould damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
