Did you know?

Using biocides or bleach to kill mould does not have any advantages. Dead mould is just as toxic as mould that is alive. Cleaning or removing mould without protecting the rest of the building or unaffected areas can in some cases spread the mould contamination. In some cases the mould becomes harder and more expensive to clean up. Some mould inspection companies lack the equipment or experience to properly assess you mould issue. They are cheaper...but are they worth it?

ABOUT MOULD

Mould Inspection - Mold Inspector

Mould can grow inside your home behind walls and underneath flooring without you even being aware of it. Even though mould is a natural occurring fungi, it can have marked health effects on many people in large concentrations and depending on the type of mould.

New and older buildings can have indoor mould growth issues. The age of the home or office has little bearing on whether there could be a mould growth issue or even a mould infestation. If there have been any water intrusion issues, excessive condensation or elevated humidity levels inside the home or office, there could be mould. Unfortunately, odor is not a good indicator of the severity or potential of the indoor mould growth problem. Buildings can have a strong musty odor and a very small area of mould growth, or no odor at all and a very significant mould problem.

There are many mould species that can cause a variety of symptoms such as skin rashes, nose bleeds, itchy and watery eyes, breathing difficulties, migraine headaches, just to name a few. Some indoor moulds are extremely toxic and can cause long lasting illnesses and disease.

LEARN MORE ABOUT MOULD

Mold needs moisture in the form of a water leak, even high relative humidity, together with a nutrient source (drywall, carpeting, dust) to grow. If you have had a roof leak, basement leak, condensation on windows, even an overflow of a sink that was not cleaned up properly within 24 hours of its occurrence, you could have mold growth
Indoor mold can be detected through air samples, bulk samples and swabs that are sent to a laboratory for culturing and identification. Most importantly, a proper air quality assessment using instrumentation is also required. This will provide you with important information on the location and potential for hidden mould growth issues as well as the cause of the problem. An indoor mould investigation will often tell you the species of mould, whether it's toxic and how much of it is in your home.
Most importantly it will be able to guide you in getting rid of your mould problem. A home or office does not have to have visible evidence of mould growth for there to be a potential toxic mould issue. This is why it is important to have a proper mould assessment done to determine if you have a mould growth issue and where.
