What is Mould
Mould is the common word for any Fungus that grows on food or damp building materials. It often looks like a stain and comes in a variety of colours. In some cases, however, mould may not be visible but may have a musty odour.
If it is allowed to grow, mould can contribute to poor indoor air quality.
Washing, cooking, air humidifiers, condensation and leaks from the outside all produce the kind of indoor moisture that mould needs to grow.
Also, poor ventilation contributes to higher humidity levels and leads to condensation, which also allows mould to grow.
In order to reproduce, moulds release small "spores" into the air and these spores are small enough that people can actually breathe them in.
Mould spores are always present outdoors. So, when mould grows indoors, the number of mould spores and fragments are usually higher indoors than it is outdoors.
Effects of Mould on health
There is increasing concern about the health effects of indoor mould growth because of a probable link to a wide range of symptoms and illnesses.Studies show a relationship between mould and damp conditions, and an increase in the following symptoms:
• Eye, nose and throat irritation;
• Coughing and phlegm build-up;
• Wheezing and shortness of breath; and
• Allergic reactions.
Although it seems clear that exposure to mould can worsen the symptoms of asthma, it is still unclear whether or not it actually causes asthma in otherwise healthy people.
To avoid potential health problems, Health Canada recommends that you remove any mould that already exists, and take steps to minimize dampness in order to reduce the likelihood of future mould growth.
If you suspect that you or someone else's health problems might be related to exposure to mould, talk to your doctor as soon as possible. Also, make sure you take steps to remove mould safely and deal with the conditions that allowed it to grow in the first place.
If you want to know more, see: Fungal Contamination in Public Buildings: Health Effects and Investigation Methods. This technical report summarizes the latest Canadian and international research on the health effects of mould.
People at Special Risk
Some people are more vulnerable to the effects of mould than others, for example, people with weakened immune systems.
Evidence shows that some airborne moulds can cause severe infections in people with leukemia or AIDS, as well as transplant recipients and those with other conditions that weaken the immune system.
How to Fix Mould Problems?
If you discover mould, follow these two steps:
1. Clean the mouldy surface with water and dish detergent. There's no need to use bleach.
2. Fix the underlying cause, whether due to water damage or excessive humidity.You can clean the mould by yourself if the contaminated surface is small, but you should take precautions to protect your health if the affected area is large. In such a case, consider hiring a professional to clean it up.
• Repair basement, roof and pipe leaks as soon as you notice them.
• Keep your house or apartment dry by always using the kitchen and bathroom exhaust fans. If you don't have any fans, open the windows for a short time to re-circulate the air. However, damp outdoor air will not help dry the inside, and can spread the moisture to other parts of your home.
• Make sure that clothes dryer hoses are properly connected and vented to the outside.
• Ensure your tubs and sinks are properly sealed to prevent water from getting into the walls.
• After a flood, or any type of water damage, be sure to completely dry the flooded area within 48 hours.
• Measure your indoor humidity level with a hygrometer and keep the humidity at around 50% in the summer, and 30% in the winter. If necessary, you can use a dehumidifier to reduce the relative humidity.
• Discard clutter and excess stored materials. Mould can grow on fabrics, paper, wood and practically anything that collects dust and holds moisture.
• Keep your house or apartment clean by vacuuming regularly.Don't over-water your plants, and watch for signs of mould in plant pots.
What if I Am a Tenant?
If you rent your home or workspace, there's a limit to what you can do to correct mould problems. If your landlord is unaware of the structural building problems that cause mould, direct him or her to some of the resources available on this site.
Landlord and tenant's rights and obligations fall under provincial and territorial jurisdiction. Ideally, you and your landlord will be able to come to an arrangement to deal with any problems, but information on dispute resolution in landlord/tenant issues is available if required:
Tips for Selecting a Mould-free House or Apartment
There are a lot of things to consider when looking for a new apartment, and if you are particularly concerned with the presence of mould, consider these factors:
• Avoid basement apartments which tend to be damp and prone to mould-growth;
• Avoid upper-floor apartments in buildings that have wet basements, since mould spores can circulate throughout the entire building;
• Avoid apartments that do not have working kitchen or bathroom fans;
• Avoid apartments with old carpets, or ask the landlord to change them before you move in; and
Avoid buildings that have a history of roof or plumbing leaks.

Threats of Toxic Mold
How Much of a Threat Does Toxic Mold Pose?
According to the CDC, it isn't accurate to refer to black mold or any other type of mold as toxic. They explain that, while there are some molds which produce toxins, the molds themselves are not toxic. The hazards that they pose are the same as those posed by "normal" mold. The number of reports linking toxic mold to unique health conditions like brain loss and pulmonary hemorrhage are very small, and not enough to draw a link.
None of this means that mold doesn't pose a threat. It has been shown to cause problems in the upper respiratory track, particularly in people who already have asthma, allergies, or respiratory problems of one kind or another. Normally healthy people might cough or wheeze in its presence. There is some limited evidence suggesting that mold might cause otherwise healthy children to develop breathing problems, which is certainly enough to cause concern for most parents.
Should You Drop Everything and Run if You Find Mold?
Mold is everywhere. It will grow anywhere that moisture can be found, and Stachybotrys chartarum, which is typically the species referred to as toxic mold, is not rare at all. Spotting mold growing in your home is not enough of a reason to pick up everything and leave. There are some people who it may pose a health risk to, and others who may not be affected at all. The only way to address the situation is to see a doctor in order to determine if the mold is the source of the problem.
Removing Mold is Usually Easy
It is not usually as difficult to remove mold as many in the industry claim. In reality, most standard cleaning products will get the job done. You can use soap and water if you like. Many people recommend a bleach solution consisting of a cup of bleach to every gallon of water.
There are, of course, some materials which can become completely infested with mold. If tiles, drywall, or carpet become moldy throughout, they may need to be removed entirely. It is under these circumstance that you will need to contact a professional who can remove the infestation and repair the damaged area.
If you do choose to use bleach, which is not necessary, be sure to open the windows, don't mix it with any other cleaners, wear protective gloves and eye protection, and talk to to EPA if the area is large than ten feet across.
The area must always be thoroughly cleaned and dried. Dead mold can still cause an allergic reaction, so it must be removed entirely. If moisture persists, the mold can return. If there is a continuous source of moisture, it may need to be addressed by a contractor who can fix the leak.
Treating the surface after cleaning the mold
It is always important that we treat the surface after cleaning the mold. I recommend that you use BY-50 to treat the surface. BY-50 is an antimold product that last about three years and not only four months as some of the products which are on the market does.
You are most welcome to contact me for more information about the product for your personal use or for your business use.
