Discovered black mould while renovating your home? Don’t risk your health—call right away to have it professionally removed.
If you find black mould while renovating your home, call a professional mould removal company to eliminate it as soon as possible. Microscopic mould spores can quickly become airborne and spread to other areas of your home. Only mould experts know how to handle and remove mould thoroughly and properly, so it doesn’t become a health risk and cause further damage to your home.
Black toxic mould can hide inside walls, and under ceiling tiles and floors. You may never see it until you’re in the middle of a home renovation, and then suddenly, there it is. Mould growth in your home is a symptom of excess moisture issues, especially where water damage has occurred. Mould can thrive in many building materials including wood or drywall, as well as under carpets and on many other materials in your home.
If there is visible mould, it needs to be professionally removed. Immediate action is required. Toxic black mould is dangerous and difficult to get rid of. It can cause or worsen health conditions including headaches, breathing difficulties, lung infections and allergic reactions.
Health Canada recommends professional mould removal in the following situations:
- If mould growth in any area of your home covers more than one square metre

What are the steps involved in mould remediation?
Identification and Analysis
The first step in the mould removal process is to identify and analyze the type of mould found in your home. It is also crucial to locate and repair the source of the moisture causing the mould to grow. All mould problems are caused by an underlying moisture issue.
Mould spores are microscopic and can become airborne during mould removal, therefore the next step is to isolate the affected area to prevent spores from spreading to other areas of the home during the cleaning process.
All materials contaminated with mould, including adjacent damp or moisture-damaged materials, are removed from the affected area in sealed bags and disposed of appropriately.
Cleaning and Disinfection
After all mould-contaminated materials are removed, the remaining surfaces are cleaned and disinfected using specialized products and techniques to prevent re-occurrence of mould growth in your home.
