Mould Remediation


Does your basement have a damp, musty or mouldy smell? Can you see mould on your walls or surfaces? If so, you could be breathing spores that may be dangerous to your health.

Mould spores are omnipresent and grow anywhere they meet ideal temperature and moisture conditions. Moulds produce allergens, substances that can cause harmful reactions, irritants and in some cases toxic substances known as mycotoxins. Inhaling or touching mould or mould spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic responses include hay fever type symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash dermatitis. Allergic reactions to mould are extremely common and they can be immediate or delayed. Moulds can also trigger asthma attacks in people with asthma and who are allergic. In addition, mould exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs, of both mould–allergic and non-allergic people.

There are many different types of common mould but one of the most dangerous is black mould. Black mould spores are very toxic and have been known to have carcinogenic effects such as lung cancer, nervous system damage and liver cancer. Mould spores can easily spread through your entire property via the ‘stack effect’, which is the process by which air circulates from the bottom up in your property. A wet basement can thus inevitably affect the health of the occupants of your property as it can be a breeding ground for mould. Research on mould and health effects is ongoing. For more detailed information consult a health professional. You may also wish to consult your provincial or local health department
