Why Do You Need Mold Remediation in Edmonton?
The combination of heat and moisture create the perfect environment for mold. This naturally occurring fungus doesn’t need much to grow rapidly once it finds its way onto many building materials. And once it grows, it will cause problems for your family. Get mold remediation at your Edmonton home by hiring the professionals at Advanced Remediation solutions.
How We Remove Mold
You suspect that your home has mold. Now you’ve scheduled an assessment with our mold remediation team. Here’s how we locate the mold in your home and eliminate its source.
After our mold remediation team arrives, we perform a thorough visual inspection of your property. The key is to determine where the moisture came from. Our mold remediation team may use instruments such as a moisture meter, a borescope, and a thermal camera to locate undiscovered water intrusion and mold growth in dark, hidden corners. These instruments can help us identify the moisture's source and the location where the mold spores began to spread.
Once we’ve completed this assessment, we’ll begin mold remediation at your home. Our mold remediation team will remove all of the mold-affected materials from your property and dispose of them according to Alberta Health & Safety guidelines.

Types of Mold
Black Mold Removal & Remediation in Edmonton
A dark-colored mass seems to have spread across a ceiling corner above your washing machine. And then you notice another growth, this time near the hot water heater in the basement.
What kind of mold could it be? Do you need black mold removal in your Edmonton home? Arm yourself with more information about mold with Advanced Remediation Solutions’ outline of different species. Read on to learn more about different kinds of mold and how you can protect yourself.
Educate Yourself: Different Kinds of Mold
Mold naturally occurs. Spores float through the air until they hit a surface. However, they only germinate and grow if they find moisture and warm air. Places like your basement and laundry room provide excellent growing conditions for mold spores. Once spores have germinated and grown, they'll form new spores and spread throughout your house.
Stachybotrys: Also known as the dreaded black mold, Stachybotrys grows in temperatures above 60 degrees Fahrenheit and 69% humidity. It takes between six and nine days to grow. Though it’s generally not found in the natural Canadian environment, black mold is found in wood materials, damp wallpapers, gypsum wallboards, and water damaged buildings. Luckily, Advanced Remediation Solutions offers black mold removal in Edmonton.
Memnoniella, Ulocladium and Chaetomium: These three represent what we call “indicator molds” because they grow in the same conditions as black mold. If you see evidence of these molds growing, you may also have Stachybotrys in your home. Call us to perform black mold removal in your Edmonton home so you and your family stay safe.
Trichoderma: This indoor mold attaches to kitchen surfaces like ceramic tiles and to dampened paper materials.
Aspergillus: This kind of mold causes respiratory infections in pets and humans. Certain types of Aspergillus can spread carcinogens.
Penicillium: Though bread mold was discovered to have an antibiotic effect, this species was also discovered eating building materials.
Fusarium: Found in soil, Fusarium has a reputation for contaminating grain and related products. It also can contaminate your home’s air ducts and infect members of your family with weakened immune systems.
Cladosporium: This fast-growing mold can start spreading in your home within 24 hours. It also can cause respiratory irritation, especially asthma attacks.

Understanding Mold’s Place in Our Alberta Environments
Molds live in the spaces where we live and work every day. Much of the time, we don’t notice them because molds are a natural part of our outdoor environment too. The relationship between these microorganisms and humans – known as environmental microbiology – is frequently beneficial. Just think of penicillin and compost piles.
Indoor Air Pollution & Mold Solutions
What happens when molds and their relationship to humans become a hazard? Recent studies on our indoor environments find the air inside often contains more contaminants than are found outdoors. Some of those are molds.
Adequate ventilation, air filtration and moisture control can improve indoor air quality in most buildings. Call Advanced Remediation Solutions Inc. for an estimate and assessment. We have the experience and expertise to identify the conditions that may contribute to these discomforts and/or even illnesses.
