“Mold in housing is one of the issues that can impact your health and your family’s health. Yes, when there’s a lot of mold in a home, it’s not a simple problem to address and usually requires professional help. However, everyone has a role to play in preventing mold and understanding what to do to clean up small areas and how to get help with larger areas. Even the little things you do can help your health!”

Reference: Dr. Thomas Digman, Health Canada

Mold Resources

  1. Potential health effects and symptoms associated with mold exposures include allergic reactions, asthma, and other respiratory problems.
  2. There is no practical way to completely eliminate mold and mold spores in the indoor environment. The way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture.
  3. If mold is a problem in your home or building, you must clean up the mold and eliminate sources of moisture.
  4. To prevent mold growth any source of a water problem or leak must be repaired.
  5. Indoor humidity must be reduced (generally below 60%) to reduce the chances of mold growth by: adequately venting bathrooms, dryers, and other moisture-generating sources to the outside; using air conditioners and de-humidifiers; increasing ventilation; and using exhaust fans whenever cooking, dishwashing and cleaning.
  6. Clean and dry any damp or wet building materials and furnishings within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth.
  7. Clean mold off of hard surfaces with water and detergent and dry completely.
  8. Prevent condensation: reduce the potential for condensation on cold surfaces (e.g., windows, piping, exterior walls, roof, or floors) by adding insulation.
  9. In areas where there is a perpetual moisture problem on the floor, do not install carpeting
  10. Mold can be found almost anywhere. Mold can grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods; almost anything can support some mold growth provided there is moisture, time to grow and food to eat.
  • Mold is an important organism and part of the natural environment
  • It is estimated that molds and other fungi make up approximately 25%of the earth biomass
  • Mold can be harmful or helpful depending on where it grows
life cycle of mold
  • There are 100,000 – 300,000 species world-wide, most of which have yet to be classified
  • Mold needs moisture to grow In ideal conditions mold can complete its growth process in as little as 24 to 48 hours
  • Little light and insufficient airflow is the perfect environment for mold to flourish
  • Mold comes in many colours
  • Some compounds produced by molds have strong smells (VOCs)
  • VOCs often have a strong or unpleasant odours
  • A musty or earthy smell suggests that mold is growing and should be investigated
  • Toxicosis
  • Allergies
  • Irritation
  • Asthma
  • Chronic Sinusitis

The most common symptoms of mold exposure are runny nose, eye irritation, cough, congestion, and aggravation of asthma. Individuals with persistent health problems that appear to be related to mold or other types of air quality contaminant exposure should see their physicians for a referral to specialists who are trained in occupational/environmental medicine or related specialties and are knowledgeable about these types of exposures.

Decisions about removing individuals from an affected area must be based on the results of such medical evaluation. Mold is naturally present in outdoor environments and we share the same air between the indoor and outdoor, it is impossible to eliminate all mold spores indoors.

Mold Remediation

The removal of mold involves 3 main steps:

1. CONTAINMENT: Isolate the problem area to prevent further spreading. This is usually done with negative air pressure equipment fitted with HEPA filtration

2. REMOVAL: All contaminated materials (dry wall, boxes, flooring, carpet, etc.) need to be removed and disposed of appropriately

3. CLEANING: Inspection Channel’s certified Mold Removal Specialists safely remove mold from all contaminated surfaces using the latest certified techniques.
