By: Genesis Restorations  09-12-2011

Remediating mold is not just about killing it, mold remediation requires physically removing the mold. Toxic mold in homes can cause allergies and serious health issues for your family. Genesis Mold Remediation technicians are Vancouver and BC lower mainland's experts in mold remediation.

The only acceptable way to return the mold contaminated environment to a healthy and safe condition is to completely remove the mold. Killing the mold only creates a more dangerous condition as dead mold and spores are more easily airborne where it will be inhaled deeply into your lungs.

Let’s start with a short and simple lesson in mold. Mold and it’s spores are ubiquitous, which means they are everywhere. The only reason mold grows indoors is because water is where it should not be. Therefore to prevent it’s growth, one needs to understand the various forms water takes and how it moves through building materials. Control it and you will change the environment that allowed it to grow in the first place. This is always the first step, otherwise any money you spend to remove it is futile. Genesis is especially skilled in understanding building science issues and determining cause. Creative and cost effective solutions are then provided.

Genesis takes a common sense approach to mold remediation, applying known science and the accepted industry standard of care to eliminate the unhealthy contaminants.
