How to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality in Gatineau

Mold is one of our primary concerns at Mold Busters, but it is just one factor in the overall indoor air quality of a building. In addition to black mold, other pollutants like asbestos, VOCs and radon also pose a huge risk to your health and well-being.

Unfortunately, in most cases, we don’t even realize we’re exposed. This is because most indoor pollutants like asbestos, radon and VOCs are hard to detect - we cannot see or smell them. Until now.

Mold Busters offers air quality testing for mold, VOCs and asbestos.

Gatineau, Quebec

Located in the province of Quebec, just across the river from Canada’s capital, Gatineau is home to the famous Museum of Civilization and Gatineau Park, a 360 km2 expanse of land, trees and lakes that offers a spectacular view of the National Capital Region. Most of the 242,125 residents of Gatineau speak French, English or both of Canada’s official languages.

I'm buying an older home in Gatineau but I want to get it tested for mold first. Is it possible to make this a condition in my offer to purchase?

Certainly. Mold tests reassure buyers that they're making a sound investment. Often, mold problems that were not noticed at the time of purchase lead to extensive structural damage and costly repairs later on. A mold inspection also often uncovers other hidden problems like moisture intrusion and poor insulation.

By finding out about any mold problems before signing an offer to purchase, you have more leverage to negotiate a lower price, to set conditions that benefit you, and to opt out of the deal if you choose to do so.

Our Mold Removal Case Study: Moore Farm Gatineau

Recently, the Mold Busters team toured the Moore Farm Estate (La Ferme Moore), a heritage property owned by the National Capital Commission (NCC) in Gatineau, Quebec. What we saw was truly unsettling: a massive mold problem.

The historic Moore Farm has been on the market for a good number of years. The NCC spent 4.8 million fixing it up in hopes of igniting interest in potential tenants. The NCC has been looking for a tenant who will use the space in a way that welcomes and benefits the public.

This is a fantastic property; unfortunately, there’s one major problem: black mold. While it hasn’t affected the large, newly renovated main building, it has wreaked havoc inside the old house that was once the caretaker’s residence. Remediation is a must. Should the NCC accept our helping hand, Mold Busters will take care of it.

Signs of mold at Moore Farm in Gatineau

As soon as you step inside the house, you notice the following:

  • Peeling wallpaper (typically the result of relative humidity above the recommended range of 30% to 50% or condensation on the walls due to poor insulation)
  • Black spots all over the walls
  • Musty odours



These are the most common signs of mold. While testing the air is the only way to determine, with certainty, the presence of toxic black mold spores, these signs should not be taken lightly.

The bathroom and the basement appeared to be in the worst shape. Here’s what we saw in the bathroom: (Beware: these images may make you cringe.)




Health risks

The good news is that this building is not occupied. However, before it can be deemed safe for occupancy, the mold must be dealt with. Otherwise, those exposed to it may experience a number of adverse health effects including:

  • Irritation in the throat, eyes and nose
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Coughing and/or wheezing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Skin rashes

How Mold Busters can help with your mold problems in Gatineau?

The NCC is considering simply tearing down the building rather than fixing it up. We don’t believe that a drastic decision like this is necessary, especially when there’s so much potential for this historic building.

For a professional mold remediation company like us, removing the mold and decontaminating the entire building is not a big deal- it’s what we’ve been doing for nearly 10 years. And so, to see this piece of Gatineau’s history preserved is well worth the effort.

Anyone who has been to or passed by the Moore Farm will agree that the property is absolutely beautiful, and we want to ensure that it stays that way. Luckily, with proper mold remediation, we can preserve the original charm of the farm for years to come.

I’m so glad I selected Mold Busters to look after a Mold issue in our shower . The fast efficient, friendly, and professional service was a relief considering it was a big job to remove all the Mold . I would highly recommend the company to anyone in need . The Owmer was also on site explaining everything which made it easier to understand all the damage and how to mediate the area. 5 Stars to this company I would not hesitate to use them again if needed.Thanks again Eddy and Kim

I called mold busters for a second opinion after receiving a very substantive clean up estimate from another company. I had also been scared into thinking the situation in my attic posed a health risk to my family (very young kids). The mold buster's representative was polite while listening to my concerns and very professional in his explanations to remediate the situation. Even before he had inspected my attic I was reassured about the implications on my health due to his knowledgable explanation. During his inspection he was very accomodating allowing me to take care of my baby. He worked quickly and independently then returned to give me a summary of his findings. He also provided a do it yourself way of cleaning up the small problem (VERY different than spending tens of thousands of dollars from my previous estimate). He was friendly, clearly cared about his customer and trustworthy. Within hours I had already received a comprehensive written summary of the findings along with my bill and next steps. This was an easy breezy GREAT service! Should I ever have a suspected mold problem again, I will definitely call these guys again!

Mold Busters exceeded my expectations, With their professional employees, the service is outstanding. The quality of their work is irreproachable. They came to my house to map the Radiant Floor Heating and the result was better than hoped. I recommend Mold Busters to anybody that needs thermal imaging analysis from experts.
