Mold Busters was established in Ottawa, Ontario, in 2005, when awareness about the hazardous impacts of mold and poor indoor air quality on human health was still in its early stages.
The founders, however, knew from personal experience with toxic black mold (more on this below) that the rapid development of microbiological testing equipment and increased accessibility to testing laboratories would make the demand for professional mold testing, inspection and remediation services surge.
This is why Mold Busters was born—to help home and business owners across Ontario and Quebec correctly identify hazards in their homes and offices and effectively remove them.
From the very start, our mission statement has been to improve quality of life through quality of service—and nothing has changed nearly 15 years later.
In the early 2000s, we owned a furniture store in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It was a humble, family enterprise that we enjoyed running, but within a couple of months, we found that the building was making us sick.
It turned out that above our furniture store, there was another business, and its bathroom was constantly flooding. We had no idea that all this water was wreaking havoc behind the walls and above the ceilings. Physically, we felt awful. We had headaches all the time. We were sluggish. And worst of all, we had no idea why.
This was the beginning for us.
In 2005, Mold Busters: The Mold Removal Experts officially opened. Our goal was simple: to protect our clients from environmental dangers like toxic black mold so they could lead fulfilling lives without having to worry about the safety of their environment.
Our own experience showed us that mold awareness in our region was lacking. We found out the hard way—by living through the danger ourselves. It wasn’t until an indoor environmental professional helped us uncover the hidden issues causing our pain that we realized that so many other people like us were likely suffering needlessly.
Soon thereafter, we invested into our own education and training. We devoted everything to learning about mold, bacteria, asbestos, ventilation, water damage, and how to effectively solve these issues. Certification after certification we grew.
Our team was a melting pot of education and talent – from engineering, to social work, from construction, to internet marketing, from linguistics to mechanics.
We formed a team with experts from all fields and industries because we wanted to provide the best service to our clients.
We knew that our clients would need professional, educated, and experienced answers to complicated questions.
They would need honesty and integrity.
They would need dedication and grit.
They would need innovation and ingenuity.
They would need compassion.
They would need experts.
Nearly 15 years later, we have been helping families and businesses understand their indoor environment from the inside-out.
Through awareness, education and passion, we have been fighting the fight against mold and asbestos in Canada and throughout Asia-Pacific.
