If mold is detected within your home or business whether in Victoria or Nanaimo, it’s advisable to avoid the contaminated space. Mold is capable of spreading rapidly, and can cause unwelcome health issues.

Children, elderly persons, and anyone with breathing trouble or allergy sensitivities in particular should leave the area until the problem has been assessed and/or remediated.

If you do need to access the contaminated area, protect yourself from mold spores by wearing a quality mask, safety glasses, and rubber gloves. Feel free to get in touch for more details on recommended brands and styles of safety equipment.

Can’t I just scrub or bleach mold away?

Don’t give mold a chance

To prevent your home or business from a potential mold infestation, there are a few areas of your property that you may want to review. Catching mold before it spreads can make a big difference in the scale of the restoration process, and knowing what to look out for may save a lot of headaches down the road.

Inspect exterior conditions

Inspect exterior conditions

Clean and repair roof gutters, have your perimeter drains inspected and flushed regularly, and ensure the ground around your home or business slopes away from the foundation so water can flow downhill from the structure. Do a visual inspection of your building and property after a heavy rainfall.

Watch for condensation

Watch for condensation

Condensation or moisture can collect on interior windows, air conditioners, walls, pipes, and more. If moisture is present, mold may populate and spread quickly to other areas. Wrap insulation around any exposed plumbing, such as in a crawl-space or basement, and fill any cracks in exterior siding.

Ventilate & exhaust

Ventilate & exhaust

Appliances that produce moisture (clothes dryer, stove) must be ventilated outside, rather than into attics or wall cavities. Clogged or poor venting may increase humidity and moisture levels. Turn on an exhaust fan or open the window when you shower, bathe, or run the dishwasher to avoid steam caused by these activities.
