Mold Removal in West Island Montreal
Local Testing and Remediation Services
Mold may seem like a common, everyday occurrence, but it can be harmful if it is ingested, inhaled or touched. No matter if you are exposed to mold for a short period of time or every day, you can experience a number of different reactions. Your symptoms can vary depending on how long you have been exposed, the species of mold you have been exposed to and how vulnerable you are to mold-related illness. Infants, children, the elderly and people with asthma or weakened immune systems will suffer more from mold exposure than healthy adults. Symptoms of mold exposure can show up as allergies, central nervous system issues, a suppressed immune system and other problems.

You can recognize mold by the following signs:
- Discoloration of walls and other surfaces
- Bubbling wallpaper
- Earthy and musty odour
- Wall condensation
- Health symptoms (difficulties breathing and swallowing, mental confusion, rashes, congestion, itchy eyes, and so on)
If you notice any of these, you should arrange a mold inspection immediately. And even if none of these warning signs are present, it’s still a good idea to conduct a mold inspection because household mold is often hidden. In order to keep yourself and your family healthy, mold inspection should be a routine part of property maintenance.

They measure moisture levels, temperature, relative humidity and airborne particles. In addition, they use an infrared camera to identify possible temperature irregularities.
They can also conduct a mold or air quality test to get further information about the mold you face. Then, using all of testing results, they will put together a report and let you know about a scope of work and quote for mold removal services.

Service Areas Across West Island Montreal
West Island is the unofficial name given to the handful of cities and towns situated on the western portion of the Island of Montreal. In 2011, it was home to around 235,740 people, a population comprised mostly of anglophones.
West Island has beautiful architecture and a rich history, with urban development dating back to European settlements in the 17th century. However, the drawback of this long history is that many of the houses and buildings in the West Island are very, very old. With this age comes cracked foundations, shifting walls and many other flaws that allow moisture to intrude and mold to multiply.
Unfortunately, there are also plenty of external sources of moisture within West Island, which sits at the confluence of the Ottawa and Saint Lawrence rivers. These geographical and architectural factors make West Island a hotbed for mold development.

How much does mold removal cost in West Island?
The short answer is, it depends. The long answer is that our technicians first need to thoroughly inspect the property and consider a variety of factors (including the size and extent of the contamination, the location of the mold problem, etc.) in order to give you an accurate price for mold removal.
But in no way should this discourage you from asking for professional help. In fact, it is much more cost-effective to have a professional remove the mold than suffer the consequences of doing it on your own. You risk exposing yourself to a toxic substance, as well as having the mold contaminate other areas of your home or even grow back due to improper remediation.
In addition to locating the source of the mold problem and cleaning the entire mold-contaminated area following all remediation guidelines and protocols, Mold Busters will conduct a free post-remediation air quality test. This way, you know that your indoor air is completely free of mold. If you need the best mold removal service in the country, contact us for a quote today.

The technician Charlie was incredibly intelligent and really took his time to answer all of our questions about asbestos. Unfortunately the price for the testing services was way too expensive for us especially knowing what other companies charge. Aside from that the service was top notch. The gentleman over the phone was professional and informative. He got us an appointment within a few hours and again, Charlie really impressed all of us who were present. Give that young man a raise haha. Thanks for the quick service. – 5/5.
