Attic Mold Remediation in Toronto
If you’ve recently discovered mold growing in your attic, you are likely thinking about your next steps, and whether or not you should have an attic mold remediation in Toronto. There’s a lot of conflicting advice out there on whether or not a professional remediation is necessary or if a savvy homeowner can do it themselves, but mold should always be removed by a professional.
There are two key reasons that your attic mold remediation in Toronto should be done by the pros:
Mold has loose spores on it. Mold is a type of fungus that appears in the natural world, and has an important function out in the forest, fields, and wild parts of the world. In your home however, it can cause property or structural damage and well as serious health effects and discomfort. Mold reproduces by sending out small airborne spores that float around until they land on a new habitable (and edible) surface - this could be anything from drywall to an old box of clothes, to carpeting. Once these spores have found a new home, all they need is moisture and the right temperature to reproduce and send out more spores - and this can happen within 48 hours of the introduction of moisture.
When weekend warriors try to tackle attic mold remediation in Toronto on their own, they often disturb clouds of these tiny spores into the air, where they settle in other rooms or are carried there on your clothes. At MoldTech, we prevent this problem from occurring by undertaking safety protocols and procedures outlined by organizations like the National Association of Mold Professionals or the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification. Our involvement in these organizations mean that our teams are trained in best practices and are up to date with specialized, industry research and science that lets us keep you and your family safe.
Specialized tools and procedures will ensure that your attic mold remediation in Toronto is thorough. Mold is difficult to remove from homes in part because it hides so well - underneath, inside, or even sometimes in plain sight. By hiring a professional to do your attic mold remediation in Toronto you gain not only their experience, but also the specialized assessment and remediation tools they have at hand to locate unseen mold growth.
Our specialized tools also let us find hidden mold without making a mess - thermal infrared cameras, fibre optic wall cavity cameras and non-invasive radio frequency gauges are three such tools that we use at MoldTech.
