EXPERT MOLD REMOVAL FOR YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS

WHAT CAUSES MOLD GROWTH?
- Any organic food source, including cellulose in paper, wood, or drywall, natural fibres, and even soil
- Moisture or excess humidity in the air
- Moderate temperature, especially between 20 - 30°C
- Stagnant, stale, non-ventilated air
When allowed to grow, mold causes discolouration and damage to building structures and materials. Significant amounts of mold impact indoor air quality, requires specialized remediation techniques and is costly to remove.
Are there any warning signs to look for?
If there are dark spots on your ceiling, floors or walls, this is a sure sign of mold growth. Musty odours and mildew are often also signs that mold may be growing in your home. Respiratory and allergy symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, trouble breathing and wheezing are a common indicator of mold growth as well. High humidity levels in the home that result in condensation on glass and metal surfaces are also a warning sign of mold.
How does mold spread?
For molds to grow and reproduce, they need a damp environment and an organic food source, such as cellulose, which is found in many building materials such as wood, drywall, ceiling tiles, and other household materials such as carpeting and fabrics. Mold can also grow in a home’s HVAC system, gutters, roof, foundation, and other areas where the environment encourages mold growth.
