Toronto Mould Remediation Services

Mould can be found in almost any building, but it becomes a problem when there is a high amount of moisture in the air or on a surface.  A mould infestation may be annoying, but it can become dangerous.  Exposure to mould pathogens need not be a problem as the immune system destroys them.  It is a problem, however, when the immune system has been “overworked” by such a common situations as fighting a cold.  A person who is continually exposed to certain chemicals or pathogens, can also develop a “hypersensitivity”.  This usually explains why someone who has not suffered from exposure suddenly becomes sensitive.

What Is Mould?

Moulds are fungi, a group of very common organisms that also include  mushrooms and yeasts.  Moulds are generally found in nature and are carried indoors from the outside.  More than 270 species of mould have been identified in Canadian homes.

Moulds can grow indoors in wet or damp areas, including wallpaper, ceiling tiles, carpets (especially those with jute backing), insulation material, wood and drywall.

What Are The Health Effects Of Mould?

Most common types of moulds are generally not harmful to healthy individuals.  However, exposure to mould can cause reactions depending on overall health, age and the amount of time an exposed person spends in the home.

The most common health problems associated with exposure to mould are:

  • Eye, nose and throat irritation
  • Runny nose, sinus congestions, frequent cold symptoms
  • Increased asthma attacks
  • Allergic reactions
