If not taken care of properly by a mould removal and remediation specialist, more harm than good can be caused.

Mould containment is paramount. Should mould spores become airborne, they can get into the HVAC system and spread to other parts of the building. Proper containment is vital in preventing the spread of contaminants, as well as, exposure. Once containment is set up, and moisture source has been taken care of, the removal process can begin.

What Does Mould Need to Grow

Mould needs four things in order to grow:
Food – organic materials such as paper, wood, plants, etc.
Moisture – Mould needs a source of water to thrive and grow
Temperature – optimal temperature for mould is between 60-80F (15.5-27C).
Oxygen – Mould needs oxygen in order to thrive and grow

We are often asked how to “kill’ the mould. You cannot “kill” mould. Mould spores will only go dormant if it doesn’t have the right nutrients (food, water, warmth and oxygen). The best way to prevent mould growth is to remove one or more of the four nutrients and keep all surfaces clean, dry and plenty of ventilation.

Symptoms of mould exposure can include:
• Nasal and sinus congestion
• Eye irritation (itchy, red, watery eyes)
• Wheezing and difficulty breathing
• Cough
• Throat irritation
• Skin irritation (rash)
• Headache
