What is Mould?

To add a new question go to app settings and press "Manage Questions" button.Mould is microscopic fungi, and is very much apart of our natural environment. It is present everywhere, both indoors and outdoors.

How does Mould grow?

Mould spores need water, oxyden and warm temperatures to grow, so it will flourish in areas of high humidity or dampness. The ideal temperature for mould growth is 20 degrees celsius or 70 degrees fahrenheit. In the home mould will tend to grow in areas of the basement, damp rooms, and closets, or areas where water damage has occurred.

What does Mould look like?

Although there are many types and colours of mould, the most common indoor mould tends to be black mould. Black mould appears in clusters and in its infancy is recognized by spotting on ceilings, walls and behind furniture.

Is Black Mould dangerous to my health?

Black mould produces toxins called mico-toxin, which is capable of causing health problems in humans.

What should I do if I find Mould in my home?

Small areas of mould may be cleaned by the homeowner using a light detergent, warm water, and vinegar or baking soda.

When should i call a professional?

It is recommended you contact a professional to assess the problem for areas which may be 10 sq. ft. or greater, or if home remedies fail.





Ty-Dan Environmental Solutions Inc. was contracted to remove mould from the interior wall of a home located in the Hardwood Hill area of Sydney, NS. The homeowner had been fighting the problem for several months, using various home remedies to wipe away the mould. Although she was successful at wiping the areas clean, it would soon return.



Asbestos and mold abatement is very serious business.

Before hiring a contractor, be sure to ask for proof of certification, insurance coverage and safety & WCB standing. This documentation is your assurance that the contractor is legitimate and can safely carry out the abatement project.
