What is Mould


Mould is a common word to describe any type of fungus that is capable of growing in damp places in businesses and homes. The dangerous factor of how mould spreads and reproduces is centred around the fact that mould releases airborne spores. The Danger with these spores is that they are small enough to be ingested by humans and animals, and can cause some serious health problems such as:

  • Eye, nose and throat irritation
  • Coughing and phlegm build-up
  • Wheezing and shortness of breath
  • Allergic reactions
  • infections and ongoing issues

Mould is commonly found in moist conditions where proper ventilation or vapour barriors have previously been ignored. Mould is capable of rapidly spreading if in the right conditions. Mould can be found in both new and old homes and businesses, mould can take hold in attics, basements and bathrooms – anywhere moist conditions exist. If mould is left unattended, mould can cause allergies, aggravate asthma, among other health problems, as well as cause serious physical damage to your home or business.

Removal Options


Mould Remediation is an extremely critical process that requires companies to follow certain regulations in order to ensure the safe removal with eliminating threats of new mould growth. Diligent Construction highly recommends hiring a company that specializes in the process. It’s essential to get the mould inspected to see if visible or hiding mould growth is active. We also offer testing to ensure the contaminated area is affected by mould. Once the contaminated area has been assessed and confirmed to have mould growth our team will work extensively until completion of abatement phase. Although there are several different options for mould remediation from Do-It-Yourself Kits – spray chemicals, there is no guarantee these products eliminate mould, and without a professional assessment it’s impossible to confirm the elimination of Mould Growth. Certified Mould removal involves a multi-faceted approach from start to finish. The process involves:

  • Determining the severity of the contaminated area
  • Testing Samples of potential Mould growth in order
  • Confirm Mould Growth and Contaminated Area
  • Isolating the contaminated area through Medical Grade Polystyrene barriers. To completely isolate room and all methods of air circulation (Ex: HVAC Vents, Windows, Doors)
  • Installing and measuring negative pressure via HEPA equipped negative air machines
  • Removing and safely disposing of contaminated materials
  • Remediating mould growth using abrasive methods followed by an environmentally friendly anti-microbial wash
  • Complete HEPA vacuum of the entire area
