It is always concerning to discover mould growth on your property because of the risk of health problems and structural damage. Mould is often present as a result of water damage or excess moisture from some other source. Wood, drywall, and other building materials are often affected by mould because they contain cellulose, a common food source for mould. Without proper remediation and removal, the mould growth will continue to spread and cause permanent damage.

Aftermath Contracting offers mould remediation services for homes and businesses in Vancouver, BC and Surrounding Areas. Our professionals will locate and remove all mould from the premises and restore and repair all items damaged by mould. 

Cleaning

Problems Caused by Mould

The mould will eventually destroy the wood, drywall, or whatever surface it grows on because mould eats away at the material. This can weaken the affected materials and the structural damage that results can cause major issues for your home or building. Mould also has a strong, unpleasant odor that can linger throughout the property if the source material is not properly removed.

Exposure to mould can cause allergic reactions and infections in residents of the building, especially in those with weak immune systems. Common allergy symptoms that mold can trigger include headaches, skin irritation, coughing, itchy eyes and throat, and nasal congestion. Respiratory infections can be a great risk for those who are exposed to mold frequently. The potential health risks will worsen if you ignore the mould growth on your property.
