Presence of residential mold

Mold is created by too much moisture in a room or wall. Excessive humidity promotes fungi and mold growth. Normally, mold does not appear or develop if a surface is completely dry and the area is ventilated.

Where is your mold?
  • Basement
  • Storage spaces
  • Upstairs Wall
  • Ceilings
  • Floors
  • Attic, roof and roof spaces
Which materials can be affected by mold?
  • Wood
  • Plywood
  • Gyproc (plasterboard sheet)
  • Concrete and cement
How mold can show up?

Here are other clues to help you detect mold :

  • Stains on the walls
  • Inflated or curled gypsum wall
  • White crystal deposits on the soiling
  • Floor softening by zone
  • Wood rotting (Stachybotris, Penicillium)
Did you notice an unusual bad smell?

In many cases, water infiltration is not important enough to become apparent. However, these small quantities of water that enter and stagnate in your subfloor or between your walls become the perfect place for fungi and mold to form.

If you perceive an unusual and persistent bad smell, it's time to act and find the source.

Understand the mold for better to eliminate

Mold is part of natural environment. Outside, its play a role in the nature by eliminating the dead organic matter, as fallen leaves and dead trees. But inside, the growth of mold should be avoided.
The molds are reproduced by small spores (fungi). The spores are invisible to naked eye and float through the outside and inside air. Molds can begin to develop inside by propagating on wet surfaces. There are many types of molds, and none of them will grow without water or moisture.

Health Consequences

Molds damages the materials on which they grow. The higher the amount of mold, the highest is the quantity of emitted spores that can be harmful to your health.

Molds damages the materials on which they grow. The higher the amount of mold, the highest is the quantity of emitted spores that can be harmful to your health :

  • eyes nose and throat irritation;
  • cough and phlegm;
  • wheezing and shortness of breath;
  • asthma symptoms;
  • allergic reactions.

What are the causes of mold formation?

Excessive humidity can be caused by several factors. Here are some issues we frequently observe in buildings structure :

Roof and external covering water infiltration

The roof can often be the source of your problems inside your home or business. A small flow from house roof can occur on the floor and all the way to the basement. Leaks can be very small, but over time the moisture in your wall will appear on the surface of your gypsum.

Soil Cracking and basement water infiltration

The soil of our buildings, homes and businesses is exposed, over the years, to different pressures and climate change. It can happen that small cracks are formed, and water begins to seep into the walls or floors of your basement.

Poor sealing and water infiltration through doors and windows

Doors and windows installation of your house or business must be done properly. A small installation angle deflection, an improper application of the insulating foam or exterior sealant will leave a space small enough to allow water to enter.

In addition, over the years, protective rubbers of your doors and windows dry out and tear and let pass small amount of water.

Inadequate ventilation system

We find an impressive variety of ventilation and air conditioning system on the market. Poor installation or simply a poor-quality system can be responsible for a high humidity level in your home or business.

A malfunctioning system can, combined with house inhabitants’ daily activities and practices, increase house humidity levels and cause an environment that is too wet and conducive to mold growth.

Occupants daily activities

Excessive humidity can be caused by house or business occupants daily activities.

- Inside drying clothes

Drying clothes on hooks or flat can be an important source of increasing your inside home humidity percentage.
Clothes that do not go to the dryer that you hang in your home release the water they contain. Make sure the place where they hang is well ventilated and do not keep the door of this room closed.

- Bath taking and use of the shower

Many of us like to take long showers or a very hot bath. Do not hesitate to open your bathroom ventilation system or to open the window. The high humidity degree generated must be evacuated.

- Plants care

Plants are a source of evaporation. By watering the plants, they also release water and are conducive to the development of mold. A medium-sized plant releases about half a liter of water a week.
If you are a greenery passionate inside your home, it is important to control your home or business humidity level and maintain a healthy level.
