Malton, ON Mould Damage Remediation

Understanding the Severity of Mould Damage in Malton Homes and Businesses 

As a hub of the Canadian National Railway, there are hundreds of commercial structures, shopping complexes, and accommodations throughout Malton. From the hotels along Highway 427 to the Woodbine Mall and Westwood Square shopping centre, mould and microbial threats can be damaging to the building and hazardous to its patrons. Environmental testing conducted by our professionals can distinguish when further remediation actions are necessary to repair damages and remove active colonies in a Malton, Ontario home.

Certified Mold Remediation Company for Malton Ontario

Removing active colonies happens through a combination of focused mould cleanup on exposed surfaces with antimicrobial products, abrasive tactics such as sanding materials like wood framing. Since the fungus can transfer easily from one type of organic material to another, mould colonies can get quickly out of control in shopping areas like the Malton Plaza and Brandon Gate Plaza, and historic properties that have been around since well before Mississauga incorporated in the 1970s.  Visit our mold damage restoration page for details. 

Long-Term Prevention of Mould Growth 

Whether it is your home in the city or a commercial structure near downtown Toronto, mould remediation is only the beginning of what a structure needs. Repairs and preventative steps keep microbial threats from returning. Sealing vulnerabilities for water penetration, repairing storm damages, or reducing the humidity in the structure are effective methods for lowering mould concerns.

Understanding Mold

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 - (905) 238-7376

We’re available 24 hours, 7 days a week to answer your phone call. Our consultant will guide you through this process, asking questions that will allow us to better understand your situation and to determine the needed equipment 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

To keep the mould spores from spreading further, we will use various mould containment procedures. Our professionals may use physical barriers and negative air pressure to isolate the contaminated area and to help prevent the mold spores from spreading through your Malton, ON home or business. Also, we’ll turn off the property’s fans and heating and cooling systems 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

Depending on the amount of mould growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mould remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mould colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.

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 Malton, 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.
