Microscopic mould spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mould from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mould removal” and even guarantee to remove all mould, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mould facts:
- Mould is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mould spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or on a pet.
- Mould spores thrive on moisture. Mould spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins.
- Before mould remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mould may return.
- Mould often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mould problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mould growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

The Mould Remediation Process
Every mould damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mould remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:
Step 1: Emergency Contact - (705) 733-7767
We’re available 24 hours, 7 days a week to answer your phone call. Our consultant will guide you through this process, asking questions that will allow us to better understand your situation and to determine the needed equipment and personnel.
Step 2: Inspection and Mould Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the mold damage by carefully inspecting your property for visible signs of mould. Since mold can be hidden, we use various technologies to detect mould and hidden water sources.
Step 3: Mould Containment
To keep the mould spores from spreading further, we will use various mould containment procedures. Our professionals may use physical barriers and negative air pressure to isolate the contaminated area and to help prevent the mold spores from spreading through your Innisfil, ON home or business. Also, we’ll turn off the property’s fans and heating and cooling systems to prevent the spread of mould.
Step 4: Air Filtration
Our specialized filtration equipment allows our professionals to capture microscopic mould spores out of the air. We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mould spores while the mould remediation is in process.
Step 5: Removing Mould and Mould-Infested Materials
Depending on the amount of mould growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mould remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mould colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing
SERVPRO of Barrie will use a variety of cleaning techniques and products to clean your furnishings and personal belongings. Since mould infestations also cause a persistent musty odor, our professionals are also trained to remove odours and provide deodourisation using fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Innisfil, ON home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mould damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
