Mould / Water Damage

Fungi, also called mould or mildew, are microbiological organisms that can live and reproduce and potentially cause health problems in indoor environments.  As you are likely aware, it can be a serious hazard to your personal health and your property’s value.  Mould growth inside buildings is typically due to excess moisture caused by leakages, condensation or capillary movement of water into the building.  Water damage assessments performed by our trained qualified personnel can determine and/or categorize the type of water damage that has occurred.  We do so following the guidelines of the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration –primary guideline followed when structural drying and/or remediation work is being carried out.  In any water damage situation, if the affected areas are left unattended, microorganisms may amplify.  In other words, the longer the situation is left untreated, the greater the potential risks to you and your property.
