Mold is a type of fungus whose function is to decompose dead organic material. The spores and fibre-like structure of individual mold colonies are too small to see with the naked eye.
But when many mold spores unite to form colonies, they can show up in different colours, depending on the species.
Although mold plays a major role in the Earth's ecosystem, it can also be hazardous to human health, if we are constantly breathing in air saturated with mold spores and fungal fragments.
If you suspect any signs of mold in your home or business, call Mold Busters. Our professional team will take a close look at the suspected area, test any suspicious materials and, if needed, initiate the process of mold remediation.
Petawawa is a town in Southern Ontario, and it’s the most populous municipality in Renfrew County. The town lies on the west bank of the Ottawa river. Due to its beautiful nature, it’s a favourite stop for hikers, canoers and kayakers. The name Petawawa comes from the local Algonquin word biidaawewe, which means "where one hears a noise like this."
Bleach does not penetrate or soak into porous surfaces like wood and drywall. The active ingredient, sodium hypochlorite, stays above the surface while only water gets absorbed. That’s why bleach is NOT effective at killing mold in porous materials. In fact, it could make the problem worse because the water that absorbs into the porous material will only fuel further mold growth.
So, to be clear, bleach is NOT an effective cleaning agent for mold. While it will remove the surface discoloration caused by mold, proper mold remediation requires deep cleaning and the removal of all mold-infested materials.
Call Mold Busters for fast, effective and safe mold removal using today's most advanced remediation equipment.
