Mold Removal in West Island Montreal

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.

West Island Montreal, Québec

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.

Mold Remediation in West Island Montreal

While reading all this, you might get scared or stressed out and decide to remove all the mold by yourself. However, this is actually the worst thing you could do. Proper remediation requires specialized training and adherence to standardized protocols to remove mold safely and effectively. Even if you successfully eliminate a patch of mold with chemical treatments, this mold is likely to grow back because cleaning solutions don’t address the underlying moisture and ventilation problems that caused the mold to grow in the first place. You also can’t identify hidden mold in your floors or walls without the right equipment.

That is why you need to hire mold remediation specialists. Our qualified professionals at Mold Busters can conduct all types of mold inspection and remediation. We use highly sensitive air- and moisture-testing protocols to identify hidden mold and otherwise unnoticeable problems with ventilation and moisture management. During remediation, we use high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) vacuums and filters that remove even the smallest mold spores from the air and prevent mold from spreading to other parts of your home..

If you need to have mold removed from your attic, basement, or any other part of your home, contact Mold Busters.

Attic Mold

Attics are one of the most mold-prone areas of any home for a variety of reasons. In order to thrive, mold needs moisture, warmth and cellulose-rich food (wood, drywall and insulation). There is plenty of all three in attics, which will be even more vulnerable to mold if they suffer from common problems such as roof leaks, high humidity and condensation. Attics also attract mold due to common home architecture and ventilation. Humid air is warm and tends to rise from floor to floor until it gets trapped in the attic.

All these problems are worsened by the fact that most people don’t go into their attics often. Mold can therefore grow freely, spreading invisible spores from there through the rest of the house, where you breathe it without even knowing it’s there. This can put all your family members at risk.

Basement Mold

While attics are a great environment for mold growth, they pale in comparison to basements. Due to flooding, condensation and poor ventilation, basements are the most mold-prone areas of any home. Mold can penetrate concrete foundations and cracks in window insulation. The stark temperature differences between indoor air and the cold ground outside creates massive amounts of condensation. If, like many people, you keep old carpets, furniture or clothes in the basement, they make for an ideal home for mold.

Mold Inspection and Testing in West Island Montreal

You should bear in mind that all houses and buildings are susceptible to mold, especially if they provide organic material, moisture and a warmth.
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.

We at Mold Busters conduct detailed, conclusive, clean and safe inspections. A trained and certified mold inspector comes to your home and checks it for signs of mold and moisture intrusion. 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.
If you want an expert to conduct a mold inspection in your home, call Mold Busters.

Air Quality Testing

We always say “It’s not mold until it’s tested.”
Mold Busters experts conduct two types of testing: non-viable air testing and surface sampling.
When conducting non-viable air testing, our inspectors will collect a sample of your indoor air and test it under a microscope in an accredited laboratory. These lab results reveal more detailed information about your indoor air quality, such as whether there is mold, what species it is and its concentration.
Surface sampling uses tape, swab or bulk sample to detect whether a surface contains mold. This method is more straightforward but it doesn’t provide as detailed information about indoor air quality. However, when combined, these two methods are extremely reliable and accurate.

Asbestos Testing

Asbestos can be found in many parts of your house or apartment:

  • Hot-water heating system
  • Insulation in walls and ceilings
  • Electrical appliances
  • Vinyl floor tiles
  • Shingles and felt for roofing

Asbestos is very brittle and light, so the slightest disturbance to any materials containing asbestos can fill the air with particles. If you inhale these particles, you can develop serious health issues ranging from chronic wheezing to even cancer. In addition, asbestos can be released through various maintenance procedures, so it is essential that you have a team of experts conduct asbestos testing in your home.

If you need fast and reliable asbestos testing in the West Island, contact Mold Busters 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.
Scott K.
Charles went above and beyond call of duty to give us peace that our family was not at immidiate risk but also clearly educated us on the importance of dealing with this in a safe manner.
