Your home is your castle - it’s where you relax, raise your family, and where friends gather. Making sure your home is a safe and healthy environment is a key part of being a homeowner, and nothing is more important than making sure that mold growth is removed quickly and professionally. At MoldTech, our mission is to provide you with the best mold removal in Toronto so that your home is clean, protected, and to ensure you’re educated about the hazards of mold growth.
Molds make up part of the over 200,000 species of fungi in the world and is an important part of the natural world around us. While some are beneficial or helpful, most household mold is not. Along with the destruction of property, mold can seriously damage the structure of your home and cause a myriad of health problems for you and your family. Removing mold - and most importantly, eliminating the situation that allows it to grow - should be done as soon as it’s discovered in your home.
Mold is usually first detected by your nose - at MoldTech, one of the first things we notice when performing a mold removal in Toronto is a musty odor. Mold isn’t always visible to the eye, but the specialized professional equipment and tools we use help locate the site of mold growth in your home. If you can see mold, it often first appears as a fine white, brown, green or black fuzz on surfaces, and this fuzz can quickly spread to organic materials in your home like drywall, wood studs, furniture and paper goods.
Making sure that mold growth doesn’t take hold of your home isn’t just about a little damage or replaced drywall - it’s really about the health and safety of you and your home. Mold spreads by sending spores through the air, where they can be inhaled and cause a myriad of health problems. Itchy eyes and nose, sneezing, and headaches are the most commonly associated reactions to mold growth, but if you have a disease like asthma, a compromised immune system, or have a young or elderly person in the home, the consequences of mold can be much more serious and long-lasting. While ‘toxic black mold’ (or Stachybotrys Chartarum) isn’t nearly as common as the media makes it out to be, various types of mold can still release toxins that may have severe - or even life-threatening - effects on your health.
Mold can be found anywhere in your home - in cupboards, around the tub, in closets. But there are two places where we most frequently find mold growing, and that is in the attic and the basement. These spaces are commonly affected by mold growth because they provide ideal growing conditions: temperature, moisture, and food. These three key elements give mold all it needs to grow and thrive, and since these spaces generally experience less traffic, leaks or moisture buildup can be missed, which can lead to the perfect conditions for mold growth.
If you suspect you have mold in your home, or see visible evidence of mold growth, it’s best to call in a professional for assessment and removal. At MoldTech, our mold removal services in Toronto approach remediation as it should be - a delicate science which results in a safer and healthier environment for you and your family.
Since mold removal in Toronto generally starts with some demolition work to remove contaminated furniture, drywall, or other materials, the team at MoldTech always begins by isolating the site using barriers and negative pressure. Protecting a home’s occupants and other living spaces from dust and debris is of paramount importance to us, so all of our remediation projects also use industrial grade filtration devices and specially constructed entrances and exits. This ensures that any mold released into the air or on our worker’s clothing doesn’t travel to the rest of your home.
Once all of the contaminated materials have been removed, cleaning can begin. At MoldTech, our many years in the mold removal in Toronto business have meant we’ve tried every solution out there, and we’ve stayed ahead of the curve by using the best and newest certified products on the market. While others may cut corners or leave it to the homeowner to clean up, at MoldTech we take pride in our thorough cleaning - this sometimes doubles our workload, but this step ensures that you end up with a home that will look, feel, and smell fantastic.
