There's Black Mould on My Walls - HELP!

25 February, 2018

In general, whether it’s a basement or a washroom, areas that are poorly ventilated will allow for high levels of moisture – a perfect environment for mould to start developing and spreading. DIY mold removal is possible for walls and concrete Removing and disposing mold from carpeting, wallpaper, and even furniture, is the easy part – as long as care is taken. As for a basement wall (or concrete floor) there are commercial products available designed to clean and kill mold. In fact, bleach is considered one of the better cleaners. With any DIY mould removal, hard scrubbing is the key – at least until any remnant of mold has disappeared. With difficult infiltrations, you may well need to let the cleaning solution sit and soak before scrubbing. For the most difficult situations, a more powerful cleaner may be needed. With mould, regardless of the severity, caution must be taken. That means wearing rubber gloves and safety goggles to protect your eyes. It’s often recommended to wear a dust mask so that none of the mold (or spores) can be breathed in. It’s also important to work in a well-ventilated space.

14 January, 2018

Mold and Mildew – the Differences are Important While it’s not uncommon to get mold and mildew confused, there are some important differences to consider. Like mold, mildew is a fungus, but it primarily shows itself as a white substance. Mildew is considered a superficial growth with an affinity for living plants and organic matter like wood or paper.

The Dangers of Mold in the Laundry Room

12 January, 2018

The dangers of mold in the laundry room If there is mold in the laundry room, then it means that the conditions for mold growth are present - and it means that corrective action is required. Homeowners often find mold in the laundry room because there are higher levels of humidity present. In fact, the combination of warmish air and a high level of air moisture make for an ideal environment for mold to thrive. More than that, if the laundry room is poorly ventilated, the air moisture quickly accumulates with nowhere to go. With such conditions, the result is mold in the laundry room. The health risks are generally low with the average mold outbreak, but risks are heightened if the mold has spread dramatically, or if mold spores have begun to circulate throughout the environment.
