Effects of Black Mold

Molds gradually destroy whatever they grow on and can grow anywhere:

  • Foundation
  • Roof
  • HVAC system
  • Drywall
  • Gutters
  • Furnishings and more

All molds have the potential to cause side effects:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Breathing Difficulties
  • Skin irritation
  • Allergic reactions
  • Aggravation of asthma symptoms

But some molds, such as toxic black mold, can cause more serious reactions and illnesses including:

  • Rashes
  • Respiratory problems
  • Hypersensitivity reactions
  • Chronic coughing
  • Organ toxicity


The Mold Removal Process
A home contaminated by mold usually requires professional removal. Once you’ve discovered the mold, we’ll work with you to develop a mold removal plan tailored to your specific needs. Removing mold from your home or business now can help you avoid more costly issues down the road as the mold can spread and cause significant damage to your home and health.

 

10 Things You Should Know about Mold

Having provided safe black mold removal in Calgary and Lethbridge since 1996, our knowledge of mold removal has been shaped by years of experience. The Clean Air Services team believes there are 10 things you should know about mold growth in your home or business:

  1. Potential health effects and symptoms associated with mold exposure include allergic reactions, asthma and other respiratory complaints.
  2. There is no practical way to remove all mold and mold spores in an indoor environment. One 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 the source of moisture.
  4. Fix the source of the water problem or leak to prevent more mold growth.
  5. Reduce indoor hair humidity (to 30-60%) to decrease mold growth by venting bathrooms, dryers and other moisture-generating sources to the outside. You can also use dehumidifiers, increase ventilation and using exhaust fans whenever cooking, dishwashing or cleaning.
  6. Clean and dry damp or wet building materials and furnishings within 24-48 hours to prevent future mold growth.
  7. Clean mold off hard surfaces with water and detergent and dry it completely. Absorbent materials like ceiling tiles that have become harbours for mold may need to be replaced.
  8. Prevent condensation by reducing its potential on cold surfaces (like windows, piping, exterior walls, roofs or floors) by adding insulation.
  9. In areas where there is a perpetual moisture problem, do not install carpeting on concrete floors with leaks or frequent condensation.
  10. Molds can be found almost anywhere; they can grow on virtually any substance as long as moisture is present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods.
