What Type of Mold Does Professional Mold Removal in Toronto Cover?
Time is the most critical aspect of mold removal in Toronto and the GTA. We’re not talking about the time it takes to remove mold in the attic or basement either — it’s the time between discovering mold growth and having a professional mold removal that’s critical. Mold can begin growing in as little as 48 hours, and once it’s started, infestations can multiply quickly, which is why MoldTech likes to recommend mold testing in Toronto any time after a flood, leak, or water event in your home.
Common Types of Mold
In our experience, homeowners are split 50/50 — some care what type of mold is growing in their home, while it doesn’t matter for others. Regardless of the kind of mold discovered in your home, we’ll remove it! We see many different varieties of indoor mold growth in Toronto, but four of the most common are:
Mold tends to have one of three effects on the body.
- It might be allergenic, triggering asthma attacks or hay-fever like symptoms
- It might release pathogens, which will affect people with lowered immune systems
- It may release mycotoxins, poisons that can seriously affect the brain and body.
Where Mold Typically Grows
At MoldTech, we do a lot of mold testing in Toronto. There are several spaces we typically find mold growing, which include:
- The attic
- The basement or crawlspace
- Around windows and exterior doors
- Near sinks or dishwashers
- In bathrooms around tubs or sinks
The key ingredient for mold is moisture, which can come from water, drips, condensation, or humidity. If you have high indoor humidity or notice a long-term leak, mold testing can help assess the likelihood of an infestation.
