Mold Busters was established in 2005 in Canada’s capital, Ottawa, Ontario. At this time, awareness about the health effects of mold was lacking. Even worse was the selection of companies offering professional indoor air quality services across Ontario and Quebec.
We learned this firsthand, during a personal experience with toxic black mold (more on this below). We knew what it felt like to work in a contaminated environment, and we wanted to help others who were having the same issue.
This was the beginning for Mold Busters.
Our mission was simple: to improve quality of life through quality of service. Since then, we devoted everything to learning about mold, bacteria, asbestos, ventilation, and water damage. We hustled to become the best in the industry—Ottawa’s decontamination experts.
More than 15,000 inspections and 5,000 remediation jobs later, nothing has changed. We are still 100% dedicated to protecting our clients from indoor contaminants like black mold so they can lead fulfilling, healthy, and happy lives.

How it all began…
In the early 2000s, we owned a furniture store in Ottawa, Canada. It was a humble, family business that we enjoyed running. But within a couple of months, we found that the building was making us sick.
Turns out, above our furniture store, there was another business. Its bathroom was constantly leaking water behind the walls and above the ceilings. The result? Black mold.
Day in and day out of being exposed to this stuff made us sick. Physically, we felt awful – allergies, headaches, you name it. Mentally, we were tired, confused, and completely out of it. Worst of all, we had no idea why.
It wasn’t until an indoor environmental professional helped us discover the hidden mold in the building that we realized that so many other people were likely having the same issues. We decided to do something about it. And so, in 2005, Mold Busters was born…
