Mould Remediation and Restoration

Local and state laws may require a specific inspection and documentation protocol based on the size of the affected area. We can advise you on this process, providing guidance based on your unique situation.

Mold requires water, food, and oxygen to grow. It also requires an environment with a temperature it can survive. While mold cannot spread without these conditions, its spores may survive in a dormant state until conditions are suitable.

COMMON CAUSES OF MOLD IN HOMES

  • Persistent Humidity
  • Leaking Pipes in the Home
  • A Leaking Roof
  • A Build-Up of Condensation
  • Poor Ventilation in Your Home
  • Wet and Damp Clothing
  • Home Flooding
  • A Damp Basement
  • Foundation Dampness
  • A Leaking Air-Conditioning System

At SERVPRO of Abbotsford, we follow the current mold remediation standard: ANSI/IICRC S520 Standard and IICRC R520 Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation.

Understanding Mould

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 a pet.
  • Mould spores thrive on moisture. Mould spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • 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 odour 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.
