Mould Remediation and Restoration

When a home suffers a water damage event, a mould infestation can quickly arise and spread throughout a home in 48-72 hours. Because mould can produce allergens and irritants, you will want a professional that has training and experience to properly resolve the mould infestation. If you suspect that your Pickering home or business has a mould problem, SERVPRO of Ajax can inspect, assess and remediate your property.

Understanding Mould

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mould and mould remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mould from a building. This is a fallacy. Mould spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these facts:

  • Mould is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mould spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mould spores thrive on moisture. Mould spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mould remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mould may return.
  • Mould often produces a strong, musty odour and can lead you to possible mould problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mould growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
