Whether you’re performing a demolition because of mold or you’ve run into a mold as you’ve started demoing, it’s essential that you hire a team of professionals for mold removal and remediation. Mold exposure can cause serious health problems, such as asthma, worsened allergies, and decreased immunity, so it behooves you to take care of this health hazard immediately.

If you notice a musty odour or can visibly spot areas of mold contamination, it’s time to call in the professionals. Whether it’s a small outbreak or a large mold infestation, you need to know what you’re working with so you can take the necessary precautions to protect yourself. While we test for mold, we will also inspect the property for the cause of the growth so that we can eliminate the mold and prevent it from coming back.
After mold testing, we seal off any areas with mould contamination. This helps prevent the spread of mold to other areas as we begin the cleaning and removal process.
Once contained, we begin by cleaning the air using HEPA air filtration vacuums to eliminate any airborne mold particles. We continue to ventilate the area while we perform the next steps in the mould removal process so that, if we disturb any areas of mold, the air filtration system will continue to catch and eliminate airborne particles.
Once the ventilation system is set up, we start cleaning materials and belongings infested with mold. We use environmentally friendly mold removal products to destroy mould particles without adding harmful chemicals to the air in your demolition space. Solid objects can be cleaned, but more porous objects, such as drywall, will need to be removed and replaced as we aren’t able to remove all of the mold from these materials.
Once we’ve removed mold colonies from building materials and disposed of anything that couldn’t be salvaged, we recommend contacting a local cleaning company to start cleaning other items that could have been exposed to mold. This includes furniture, decor, clothing, and more. You should do this because any items harbouring mould can contribute to a future outbreak again.
As we mentioned, porous materials exposed to mold will need to be removed. If a mould infestation is extensive enough, additional demolition and restoration may be required. We will remove drywall, subfloors, wall studs, and any other building materials that we aren’t able to remove mold from.
Once all of these materials have been safely disposed of, we can start replacing them with new, safe building materials. We can help replace drywall, repaint walls, install new carpet, and so much more. If an area requires a complete demolition, then these areas may need to be rebuilt entirely.
