Owning a house can be a lot of work. When you are not worrying about plumbing or electrical matters, you have to worry about the presence of mold around it. By now, you probably already know how detrimental to both the structure of a home and the health of people—especially children and people with respiratory disease—mold can be. While it can easily be dealt with simple household items (think vinegar and baking soda), the unfortunate truth is that it tends to spread a lot—and fast.
What do you do when it’s too late? Not only does it become tricky to deal with… it almost becomes impossible without the help of professionals.

Whether the mold has spread around your basement or your bathroom walls, we will ensure to undo any damage that has been done and leave your house completely mold-free – aka as “mold remediation calgary“.
With that being said, what exactly causes mold? And why should you worry about it? Generally speaking, moisture is the main culprit. Think water leaks around the foundation of the house, basement, sinks and windows. The more condensation there is—especially during the winter months—the higher the risk of mold appearing will be. Ventilating your home should therefore be your main priority, as should keeping it warm and dry.
As for why you should worry about it, the fact that it can prove to be a health hazard to you and your family should be a good enough incentive to rid your house of it. It is not uncommon for people to be negatively affected by the presence of mold around their house. In fact, mold is linked to coughing, shortness of breath, allergies and even asthma. What’s more, in the long run mold can even leave the structure of your house damaged beyond repair.
Don’t wait until it’s too late. If the mold has not spread too much, we recommend that you spend some time researching how to remediate to the situation. Keep in mind, however, that the longer you wait, the more you will need to call on the help of professionals such as Platinum Disaster Restoration.
