The best way to control mold is to prevent it from forming. Effective mold prevention requires first understanding how it develops.

How does mold grow?

Mold forms in a damp, warm, poorly ventilated environment. In a house, for example, there are many sources of moisture: we can mention among others the bathroom with the shower, the kitchen with the cooking, the washer, the dryer, the heat of a room that condenses or even A leaking roof. Moreover, if you suffer water damage, which is also a source of moisture, it is important to clean and dry all areas, materials and objects in contact with water within 24 to 48 hours.

At all times, a humidity level of between 30 and 50% must be maintained. You can measure this rate with a hygrometer, which can be found in all hardware stores, at prices ranging from $ 10 to $ 60, depending on the desired device and measurement quality. Besides limiting mold growth, controlling moisture will allow you to save heating and limit the proliferation of mites.

If some sources of moisture can be directly clogged, such as a leaky roof, others will require better ventilation (bathroom, kitchen …). Opening windows for example is a good action, it is important to do it regularly, but will not be sufficient in some cases, since the current of air caused can bring moisture to other rooms. If you have a ventilation system, make sure that it is properly adjusted and that it is serviced regularly.

Malgré toutes les précautions prises dans vos habitudes et vos modes de vie qui vont limiter les risques, il est possible qu’une source d’humidité, que n’auriez pas détectée, et une mauvaise ventilation permettent le développement de la moisissure dans votre maison. Pour éviter les désagréments liés à la présence de champignons, nous vous proposons d’agir à tous les niveaux de votre habitation ou installation commerciale, que ce soit intérieur ou intérieur.

A chaque niveau (sous-sol, rez-de-chaussée, étage, entre toit et extérieur), nous procédons à une inspection initiale, l’aspiration filtre à haute efficacité (HEPA) afin d’éliminer les matières et matériaux morts qui retiennent l’humidité, l’application d’un traitement antimicrobien et d’un scellant antifongique ainsi qu’à une inspection post-application.
