Mississauga, ON Mould Damage Remediation

Mold Remediation for Mississauga Homes and Businesses 

According to a climate classification, Mississauga is deemed a humid continental area impacted greatly by various water bodies like Lake Ontario, Credit River, and other creeks and streams. This higher moisture content in the Peel Region can lead to conditions ideal for mold and microbial growth in buildings. With more than 750,000 residents in the city alone, these fungal threats are common for the experienced and helpful remediation professionals of our SERVPRO of North Mississauga team. See our mold remediation page for complete details. 

Got Mold Damage Mississauga?

The presence of mold in your Mississauga home may cause health effects, making it vital for professionals like ours to address this organism wherever it is found. With massive structures like the Toronto Pearson International Airport and the Mississauga Civic Centre, mold spores can spread quickly and get out of control without prompt action. Remediation is required to remove colonies from hosting materials using abrasive cleaning techniques. When materials are too severely impacted, controlled demolition may be required.

Mold Repairs and Reconstruction

With a team restoration experts, we offer a seamless transition from mold mitigation and remediation to reconstruction and repairs. Many discarded materials must get replaced as soon as possible to return a structure to its pre-mold conditions. With sprawling commercial properties like the Square One Shopping Centre, the many individual retail locations that could become affected by spreading mold cannot reopen without repairs and damage restoration.

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 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 Mississauga, 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

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.
