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

Microscopic mould spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mould from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mould removal” and even guarantee to remove all mould, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mould 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

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 carefully inspect your property for visible signs of mould. Mould feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view. 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

We use powerful air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, and other filtration equipment to remove microscopic mould spores out of the air. This air filtration process and our mold containment process help 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

SERVPRO of North Mississauga will use a variety of cleaning techniques and products to clean your furnishings and personal belongings. Since mould infestations also cause a persistent musty odor, our professionals are also trained to remove odours and provide deodourisation using fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Depending on the level of mould damage, drywall, subfloors, and other building materials may have been removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business. The restoration step gets your home or business back to normal.
