Mold thrives in areas where there is plenty of moisture and little to no sunlight. Overexposure to mold can have serious detrimental effects on a person’s health. Mold growth has been associated with several illnesses and health conditions, especially those related to the respiratory system. This is because mold spores are microscopic—as little as 0.3 microns—and can easily travel through the air unseen. You could be inhaling mold spores right now and not be aware of it!

Mold also speeds up the deterioration of the material on which it grows on; this is why items with severe mold growth are just thrown away. Mold growth will also cause the market value of your property to drop much more quickly.

Mold spreads through the air and usually settles in hard-to-reach areas. Because mold spores are invisible to the naked eye, you may only become aware that you have a mold problem once you see a mold colony—in other words, a small patch of mold which already contains millions of mold spores. This is why it’s important to act immediately upon the first sign of mold. Your best option is to call in a professional for thorough mold remediation.

Mold Remediation

Mold remediation, more commonly known as mold removal, is the process of removing mold-infected materials and cleaning mold from an indoor environment. It is a particularly tricky process, since it requires that the mold not spread to other areas.

The Disadvantages of DIY Mold Removal

Do-it-yourself mold removal may be possible when it comes to small traces of molding, however as the problem becomes more serious, this could be a hazard for your family and neighbours. Without the proper equipment, molding can be hard to detect and you may end up tearing up unnecessary walls, or worse, spreading the mold.

Large-scale mold removal is absolutely not recommended as a DIY project as it could easily release mold spores and many other types of hazardous particles that are detrimental to your health. We’ve seen people in the past who have tried to save money on mold remediation services and ended up costing them more because of the spreading.

Once Mold is removed will mold still spread?

Absolutely not! In fact, Mold removal performed by qualified professionals will leave your homes condition and air quality better than before.

Note: More often than not, when speaking to new customers, we find that they have hired their “master of all trades friend” to remove moldy materials from the house. What they don’t realize is that in the process of doing this, they have spread the mold spores across the entire house. This now means they have a bigger problem to deal with as it is no longer localized to one area.

Does mold travel through the heating/cooling system?

 Absolutely. Mold spores are very small (0.3 microns and up) that make them invisible to the naked eye. When you are able to visibly see mold growing (the size of a postage stamp or greater), you are now dealing with 10 million mold spores forming a colony.

Mold will travel through the HVAC and contaminate other areas they come in contact with – this includes your clothing and furniture. Cleaning of the HVAC is crucial to the success of the mold removal process.
