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 on a pet.
- Mould spores thrive on moisture. Mould spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins.
- 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 odor 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.

The Mould Remediation Process
Every mould damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mould remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:
Step 1: Emergency Contact - (289) 313-8888
The mould cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask a series of questions to help us determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel.
Step 2: Inspection and Mould Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the mold damage by carefully inspecting your property for visible signs of mould. Since mold can be hidden, we use various technologies to detect mould and hidden water sources.
Step 3: Mould Containment
Our professionals use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mould. We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mould spores from spreading during the cleanup process. All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off to prevent the spread of mould.
Step 4: Air Filtration
Our specialized filtration equipment allows our professionals to capture microscopic mould spores out of the air. We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mould spores while the mould remediation is in process.
Step 5: Removing Mould and Mould-Infested Materials
The mould remediation process depends on the amount of mould growth and the types of surfaces on which the mould appears. We’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mould colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. It may be necessary to remove and dispose of mould-infested porous materials, like drywall and carpeting, to remediate heavy mould growth.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing
We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mould, using a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and disinfect your belongings. We’re also trained to remove odours and provide deodourisation using fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Waterdown, ON home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mould damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
