Mould is a fungus that thrives in moist conditions. After a flood or prolonged leak, it may grow on drywall, framing, window sills, or tile grout. Since it can be any colour, it may be hard to detect.
Decay from mould can cause major structural problems to a building. And if the spores are disturbed, mould can have drastic, long-term health effects – especially for children, seniors, and those with breathing difficulties. So, the presence of mould can open your facility to a range of liability issues, and mould removal should only be attempted by a trained professional.
Our certified specialists will come on site quickly to do a thorough, competitively-priced assessment – initially looking for water damage and any visible signs of mould. Air quality testing of the area, analyzed by an independent lab, will then confirm the presence of mould, and identify the type and concentration of spores.
We’ll provide a report with the findings, as well as a written estimate for mould remediation and any necessary repairs. Typically, Spectrum can complete our investigation and provide this detailed information within just one business day of your call!
Remediation usually starts with us setting up a plastic containment chamber to prevent spread of the spores. We’ll then remove any mould-infested materials, disinfect the area with a biocide, and thoroughly clean the area with a HEPA vacuum. Follow-up air quality testing will confirm the mould has been successfully removed, and there is no on-going risk. Finally, our expert team will work to restore your facility to its original condition.
If you suspect mould in your facility, contact Spectrum right away.
