I found Mold does it mean is everywhere?

Mold requires moisture to grow, so as long the moisture issues stopped or are confined to the already visible area, mold will not spread immediately  into other areas unless agitated, given more moisture or food source. Think Fruit basket, when one apple gets moldy it does not immediately spread to the entire fruit basket, however if not removed eventually all fruit basket will be affected.

Will Mold spread to other areas?

While mold will always stay decomposing at the location where moisture and food source are present, they can spread when removing the materials where mold is present. This is why is important to contain it to that area, while removing it safely protecting the workers and occupants; while is fairly easy to remove the visual mold, the removal of the associated spores are invisible to us and requires specialty equipment. Our industry names it Mold remediation.

Our industry mold remediation guidelines dictate that areas with visible mold smaller than 10 sq feet any one can remove it, if healthy individuals with proper precautions.


The Government of Canada has some information here

However just because you only see small amounts of mould growth it does not mean that there is a bigger problem behind it,

A quick Google Search on mold removal in Mississauga will show for example a Mold remediation how to remove mold done by family handyman. While some parts of this guide can help you other instructions are absolutely wrong and will actually make the problem worse like “Seal moldy areas after they dry” or “Vacuum up moldy debris with a standard wet/dry vacuum. It’s the wrong advice and in fact will spread more spores in to the air since only a hepa vacuum is capable of trapping the spores.  Never seal with paint any mold since paint is a food source for mold and mold will grow back if not completely removed.

Our experts at CleanFirst Restoration will work proactively to educate you on the best strategy required to tackle and eliminate your black mould problem. We can also expand on the answers to the frequently asked questions below:

What is the cost of mold removal service in Mississauga?

While it mold removal starts at $399 the real question you should be asking is this: what is the potential cost of damages to your property caused by an unattended mould problem? Every mould removal is different, every job unique to the degree of contamination. Ultimately, the cost of mould removal is directly proportionate to the size and scope of your mould problem. You could have a few square meters of mold infecting an easy to find and fix location behind your drywall, or you could have a mold problem so extensive that you have to gut the entire house. You won’t know until you have a proper mold inspection done by a professional service that can include an air quality test and a thorough analysis of your property. CleanFirst is a professional, affordable mold removal company that provides a full estimate before any work begins. In the end, the cost of your mold removal will be far less than the cost of dealing with health issues resulting from breathing air contaminated with toxic mold.

Once mold is removed can mold return and continue to spread?

Of course it can – if the job isn’t done right. CleanFirst Restoration didn’t become Mississauga’s leading mold removal company by performing sub-standard work. Hiring a professional mold removal company like CleanFirst Restoration is your guarantee the job is being completed to exact standards. When you rely on some jack-of-all-trades contractor to try and eliminate your mould problem you are playing with fire – or, more accurately, with toxins. Only a knowledgeable, certified, experienced professional with proper equipment and tools can effectively and properly eliminate your mold problem and leave you breathing quality air. Mold is a serious problem. Eliminate the problem by hiring a company with serious experience removing and eliminating mold for good.

Does mold travel through the heating/cooling system?

Mold spores are extremely small – as tiny as 3 to 40 microns (by comparison a human hair is 100 to 150 microns). Mold spores are ubiquitous – they can be found everywhere. Undiscovered toxic black mold spores can easily travel through your HVAC system, contaminating other areas and leading to further expansion of your mold problem. Cleaning your HVAC system is part of a mold removal service, but it’s not the full solution. You need to remove mold at the source, eliminating the cause of the mold formation and treating the surrounding areas to reduce the risk of any more mold growth.

Is indoor air quality testing for mold done throughout the house or just in some rooms?

CleanFirst Restoration is thorough. Our goal is the 100% elimination of toxic mold spores from your home or business. When you call CleanFirst restoration, you get a professional air quality test followed by the complete removal of muld from your property. Testing may be required in only a few key areas once the job is complete to ensure the mold is gone. If, on the other hand, you hired someone else to remove the mold, you may need your whole tested because of the inferior work and the microscopic contaminants left behind. Save yourself time and money. If you think you may have mold, call CleanFirst Restoration and have your air tested. If you KNOW you have mold, don’t hold your breath – call CleanFirst immediately.

What’s involved in a mold removal service in Mississauga?

The mold removal service provided by CleanFirst in Mississauga and the GTA is a full remediation process;   it involves not only fully removing the contaminants but also identifying and dealing with the original moisture issues that caused the mold contamination. Every case of mold remediation is unique to the structure being serviced, and is determined by the unique circumstances that allowed moisture to result in the formation of mold.

Regardless of the size of contamination the mold remediation process is very similar. At the core of a mold remediation is the elimination of the mold, the toxic spores and the amount of excessive moisture coming in contact with organic materials inside your property. Such an environment leads to the formation of mold, and a correction is required to ensure the conditions leading to mold formation are permanently eliminated. A proper mold removal tackles the contamination and is part of a full mold remediation that addresses the entire problem.  To be successful a mold removal must include the removal of not only contaminated building materials but also the elimination of toxic air-residing particles. Contrary to the efforts of many do-in-yourselfers, you can’t complete an effective mold removal by cleaning it with bleach or vinegar on the problem. CleanFirst uses specialized equipment and industrial-strength environmentally friendly solutions to eliminate mold. Anything less and you run the risk of mold returning.

Can’t I just remove mold on my own?

CleanFirst Restoration is in the business of professional mold remediation. Given the risk involved in breathing mold spores, spreading contamination and failing to eliminate all residual signs of mold, CleanFirst Restoration doesn’t recommend you attempt to remove mold yourself. That said, if you have access to professional air quality testing devices, industry-specialized equipment and can be absolutely sure you’ve eliminated 100 percent of the mold spores that could activate and spread once again, then go ahead and do it yourself.  Everyone likes to save a little money; however, there is no end to the stories from DIY home renovators in Mississauga who’ve wound up spending more because they tried to fix a problem without the proper tools or expertise to do the job right. You decide how important mold removal is to you. When you get your answer, feel free to call CleanFirst Restoration.
