Why Mould Removal Is Important

Mould removal is extremely important for a number of reasons, the most important of which is the fact that that mould can produce numerous health concerns which, if left untreated, can increase associated health risks. First response can provide you with proper mould inspection services to diagnose the problem and completely eradicate it.

Frequently Asked Questions

White mould (mildew) and black mould share several characteristics. They are both fungi which thrive in moist, warm environments, but there are several important differences. As the names suggest, these two kinds of moulds are different in appearance. Mildew can pose some minor health issues and should be removed immediately, however black mould is much more dangerous. It can cause serious respiratory issues, heart problems, fatigue, and depression. It can also seriously damage the building. This is why it is extremely important to deal with black mould as soon as it is detected. If you suspect you have mildew or mould in your house or place of business contact us today to get it removed.

We do not recommend you clean black mould on your own. Cleaning black mould is extremely dangerous to do without proper training and equipment. Even minimal exposure to black mould during the cleaning and removal process can lead to serious health issues for you and all those in your building. On top of the very serious health risks involved in removing mould, there is a good chance you could make the problem worse on your own. Cleaning without proper equipment or training can release spores into the air and spread the black mould further throughout yourself. If you have black mould in your house or building, don’t take any risks and contact us today.

To untrained individuals, black mould can be hard to distinguish next to other kinds of mould. Black mould often appears as slimy and has a dark greenish-black or gray colour. As the name suggests, the colour of the mould is the telling sign. If you have determined that you have black mould in your home or building, contact us right away to ensure the safety of all those who occupy the space.

The safest way to get rid of black mould in your basement is to call professionals who are experienced in the area of black mould removal. Black mould is dangerous and can lead to very serious health complications, especially if you disturb it by improperly cleaning. If you have found or suspect you have black mould in your basement, contact us right away.

There are a few reasons as to why black mould might be on your ceiling. One reason it might grow on your ceiling is due to a water leak on an upper floor trapping moisture in your ceiling. Another very common cause of mould on the ceiling is when warm, moist, air interacts with a cool ceiling. This causes condensation which creates a warm moist environment for black mould to thrive in. If you spot mould on your ceiling, contact us right away so we can eliminate it before it gets out of control.

If you are suffering from mould sickness, regular exposure to mould can cause allergy symptoms, such as:

  • Wheezing/shortness of breath
  • Rashes
  • Watery eyes
  • Ronny nose
  • Itchy eyes
  • Coughing
  • Redness of the eyes
  • Persistent sinusitis

Other more serious symptoms might come to be as a result of mould sickness, such as:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle cramping
  • Persistent nerve pain
  • Numbness, tingling, or tremors
  • Vertigo/dizziness
  • Frequent colds and flu
  • Fatigue and weakness

If you suspect you are suffering these symptoms because of mould poisoning, contact us today. We can remove the mould from your home.

Mould spores become temporarily inactive after they have dried out, however that doesn’t mean they are not a threat. Dry mould spores can still cause allergic reactions such as skin rashes, runny nose, etc. This is because dried mould spores become airborne and can enter our systems.

Dry mould spores can still travel to other places in your home and spread if they find an environment which is conducive to their growth. They can also start regrowing in the same place where they are located if the conditions (such as an increase in moisture).

Even if the mould in your home is dry, the problem runs the risk of getting worse. contact us today to get rid of the mould in your home.

Once the mould is remediated from your home, you want to make sure that it does not come back. The most important thing you can do to achieve this is to control the level of moisture and humidity in your home so that it does not facilitate rapid mould growth. You can also reduce the potential for mould even more by wiping up puddles of water as soon as they form, and insulate surfaces which are prone to condensation. Dehumidifiers are also good at keeping the humidity in a room below what is needed for mould growth. Make sure that you identify and isolate sources of moisture in your home to ensure that mould does not grow back.
