Mould Remediation Services
Mould remediation is an integrated portion of our complete environmental abatement package and Biggs & Narciso has vast experience and expertise within this specific industry. Our services extend not only to the repair of problematic areas, but we can also identify and eliminate the root cause of the problem to prevent any future reoccurrences. During the remediation process, we isolate the affected area to prevent the spread of mould to unaffected areas of the building. Contaminated materials are gathered and disposed of properly to abate any secondary mould contamination. Mould is a common concern that must be completely removed to avoid further problems.
Our work has been proven effective in numerous buildings throughout Ontario. Biggs & Narciso can work with you to remedy your mould issues, regardless of the size of the project. We can provide follow-up assistance to curtail any future mould problems in your building.
What is Mould?
Moulds are a type of fungus that are found almost anywhere - both outdoors and indoors. Indoor moulds usually originate from outside organic sources such as soil and vegetation. As part of their reproductive cycle, moulds produce millions of microscopic particles called spores. Moulds spread by releasing these spores into the air. The presence of moisture is essential for moulds to grow and they are therefore usually found in damp, poorly ventilated areas. Bathrooms are an ideal place for fungus growth. While the individual spores are invisible to the naked eye, mould colonies are visible as colourful, woolly growths. Mould spores are a major source of indoor air pollution causing allergic reactions similar to hay fever. Often people who experience allergic reactions to mould spores are susceptible to asthma. In many cases, simply limiting sources of moisture and condensation and improving ventilation can reduce the presence of mould spores.
