Which Mould Remediation Processes Help Deliver Long-Term Results?

SERVPRO technicians in personal protective gear Mold can begin to grow within 72 hours of a water damage in your home. Let the experts at SERVPRO of North Mississauga help.

For Comprehensive Mould Recovery in Mississauga Call SERVPRO

Mould affects any property, whether old or new. Infestations are common when moisture problems such as flooding or water pipe leaks affect the house. The problem can go away quickly or keep recurring, thus requiring elaborate intervention.

With the right mould remediation approach, your Mississauga residence can regain its previous mould-free status. Understanding how mould develops and the materials it affects is essential in choosing the suitable remediation method. For mould to grow, three factors are necessary:

  • A sustained moisture source
  • An organic food source
  • Oxygen and favourable temperatures

Since the other factors are abundant, any sustained spike in moisture leads to mould infestation. The infestation affects more than just the surface of materials because mould produces root-like hyphae. During remediation, it is essential to dry wet materials and address any leaks. Our SERVPRO technicians also clean and remove all mouldy materials. 

Where deemed necessary, we can also repaint surfaces with mould killing primers or mould-resistant paints. These surface finishes can help kill any mould remnants on the surfaces. They also make the surfaces more resistant to microbial infestation. 

SERVPRO of North Mississauga keeps up with changing trends in mould remediation. Call us at (905) 238-7376 to help you find the right solution for your home.

What Is The Most Effective Way To Remove Odour During Fire Restoration?

SERVPRO Combines Different Approaches for Thorough Deodorisation of Mississauga Homes 

Bad odour is one expected outcome of fire incidents since odorous materials accumulate in open and hidden areas of the property. Some of the odour may dissipate after cleanup, but in most cases, further intervention is necessary to remove all lingering traces of odour. 

Deodorisation is the fire restoration procedure Mississauga residences require to regain their preloss state. Like other restoration processes, a single deodorisation method is not likely to deliver the best outcome. Professional restoration services combine several approaches to ensure all odour sources are addressed. Typical methods include:

  • Air filtration
  • Thermal Fogging
  • Use of activated oxygen 

Since smoke is made up of various substances, including fine residues and vapour, some remain suspended in the air making the property smell.  One way our SERVPRO technicians eliminate such substances from the air is by running air filtration devices with HEPA filters in the affected rooms to capture residues as small as 0.3 microns.

Odour molecules might also be embedded deep into porous materials making it difficult to remove them. Our technicians use approaches that overcome the physical challenge of reaching the odour. Thermal fogging helps deliver odour counteractants deep into materials. Alternatively, we use activated oxygen from ozone and hydroxyl generators to break down odour molecules.

SERVPRO of North Mississauga goes the extra mile during fire restoration to leave your property odour-free. Call (905) 238-7376 for assistance.

SERVPRO Avails Any Necessary Resources to Restore Flood Damage

On the shores of Lake Ontario lies Mississauga City, a transportation hub and an excellent shopping destination. One of the leading transportation assets in the city is the Pearson International Airport which is connected to seven major highways including the Ontario 401 Express and the Express Toll Route. The city was incorporated in 1974.  Initially, it was known as Toronto Township but was later renamed Mississauga.

The name was derived from the name of indigenous people in the area known as the Mississaugas of the Credit. The naming was rather peculiar since it was a contest where residents were requested to suggest their preferred name. Suggestions ranged from the absurd like ‘Banana Peel’ to the mischievous ones like ‘Police State Village’. In the end, three names, Malton, Sheridan, and Mississauga stood out, and residents chose Mississauga in a plebiscite.

A Perfect Urban Setting for Cyclists

Cycling is gaining popularity in most cities since it is a convenient way to beat traffic and is environmentally friendly. Incorporating cycling in daily routines is also a positive way to maintain fitness for an urban dweller. Mississauga offers the best experience for cyclists since it has a long term Cycling Master Plan created in 2010 that seeks to establish 897 kilometres of city-wide infrastructure over 27 years. By 2018, the city’s cycling map had already accumulated approximately 500 kilometres of interconnected paths, trails, bicycle lanes, signed bike routes and segregated bike lanes which have physical barriers separating them from the overall traffic. Some of the roads in the city with segregated bike lanes include: 

  • Burnhamthorpe Road
  • Dundas Street
  • Hurontario Street
  • Lakeshore Boulevard

Flooding Issues in Mississauga

Although there is no major flooding problem in Mississauga, occasional incidents cause severe hardship to residents. One memorable case was a flash flood incident in the Greater Toronto Area in 2013. 100mm of rainfall inundated the area in a day submerging roads and interrupting the GO train line. Many of the people inconvenienced en route from work also arrived home to find their houses submerged. Apart from the extreme incidents affecting the GTA, minor incidents affect specific neighbourhoods. Some of the vulnerable areas include:

  • Cooksville Creek which was initially affected in 2009 and was still in recovery during the 2013 floods
  • Applewood mostly affected because of the Little Etobicoke Creek
  • Lisgar which floods primarily because of water build up in foundation drain collection systems

How Does SERVPRO Help Restore Mississauga Homes with Basements after Flood Damage?

Floodwater tends to accumulate faster in basements since they are positioned at the lowest points of homes. Restoring the basement may require several processes including removing the water, cleaning and drying. It is a challenging process for several reasons:

  • Its low elevation necessitates more effort to pump out water
  • Basements are rarely empty so renovation may only be possible after moving out items
  • The water removal approach can affect the foundation of the structure
  • Faulty or broken sump pumps can exacerbate the flood damage

SERVPRO uses various resources to overcome these challenges. For instance, we have submersible pumps that simplify water extraction. If the water contains solid materials such as silt or mud, we have self-priming trash pumps to handle such extraction. Our crews are also well versed with content move-outs.

SERVPRO of North Mississauga responds to flood damage appropriately. Call us at (905) 238-7376 to assist you.

Flood Damage in Mississauga Could Permanently Harm your Home without Professional Intervention.

Mississauga is located in the Canadian province of Ontario. The city, which is built on Lake Ontario's shores, has seen steady growth throughout the twentieth century due to its close geographical positioning to Toronto. The city is well-known for its cultural diversity but also as a thriving commercial district. Mississauga was initially a region of several smaller villages and hamlets in the Toronto outskirts. The area was not officially incorporated as a city until the 1970s when the burgeoning population of 722,599 residents saw it become a city within its own rights outside of Toronto. Visitors to Canada frequently fly in through Mississauga's neighbourhoods, Malton, home to the Toronto Pearson International Airport.

The city is comprised of 22 neighbourhoods, which together house over 60 Fortune 500 companies, giving the region a strong business reputation. Most of the city's economy is driven by the banking and insurance sector and tech giants Hewlett-Packard.

A City Rich in Culture

Culturally, the city plays host to numerous festivals throughout the year. One of the largest celebrations is Carassauga, which celebrates cultures from all over the world. Each year around 300,000 people attend the Carassauga festival. In addition to this festival, several smaller festivals celebrate the city's unique cultural diversity, with celebrations for Filipino, Vietnamese and Muslim residents among the most prominent. In terms of entertainment, Mississauga is well-known for its Jazz, with several venues performing live music.

  • Celebration Square is at the centre of Mississauga and hosts ice skating events to live music performances throughout the year. One of the main events is Canada Day, while the annual tree lighting ceremony attracts thousands.
