What is Mould?
Since there are so many types of mould spores in existence, you may wonder how you will identify what type of mould exists and continues to grow. Mould can be visually seen in a number of different shades or hues- black, white, yellow, green, pink or anything in between. If the mould is growing behind a sealed interior wall, you may not be able to visually see it, in this case smelling mould (similar to dirt and rotting leaves) can be almost as reliable as visual.
What is the cause of Mould?
Moisture is the leading cause of mould and can be found in basements, around windows, baseboards, walls, flooring, and roof. Mould can also be found in heating vents and air conditioners.
Can Mould be prevented?
Yes, prompt treatment of mould can eliminate the spread to other areas. Control humidity, fix any leaks in roofs, windows or pipes. Proper ventilation of bathroom facilities, laundry and kitchen are all great ways to prevent mould.
Can you get sick from Mould?
There are 100,000+ types of mould spores, making it impossible for homeowners to identify. However, homeowners may feel the effects of the mould being present in their home. Chronic sinusitis cases can be attributed to mould. Headaches, sinus problems, sore throats, and other common respiratory symptoms can be caused by various things, but mould may be just as likely the culprit
Mould Removal and Mould Abatement
After the existence of mold has been confirmed, our certified, experienced personnel will begin the mould removal. The first step in the removal process is to set up a containment in the affected area(s), ensuring isolation of the area. Next, we use negative air machines with HEPA Filters, to ensure the mould spores do not travel to other areas of your home. Our certified personnel will then clean, disinfect, sanitize all affected areas using certified products. In some instances, cleaning the area may not be sufficient, in such cases removal of the affected area may be required by Renegade HM Services personnel.
