You may not always see signs of mold, but you may detect a musty or dank odour in a specific room or area. You may consistently feel unwell or have frequent cold symptoms, which then go away when you stay elsewhere. These could be signs of a hidden mold issue and a reason to have a full home mold inspection.
Our certified and experienced mold technician, Roy Piper, will conduct a walk-through inspection with you. Roy will answer your questions and examine any specific areas of concern. He will inspect the attic for mold and check out the ventilation systems and insulation conditions up there. Roy will also test bathroom fans, measure humidity levels indoors and compare them to levels outside, inspect the crawlspace or basement, check for any water intrusion, and may use an infrared camera. Contact us at Home SOULutions for more information or to schedule an inspection.
This photo shows the mold growing through the paint in an attic. The goal of the paint was to encapsulate the mold, but as you can see this is not the best process.
This mold was sprayed with a product with the goal of rendering it non-viable (killing it). Other than watching to see if it grows again, there is no way to determine if this mold is still viable (live). The best way to deal with mold is to remove it!

I recently bought a home, and the building inspection at the time showed mold growing in the attic around the bathroom vent. I had tried another company first but I guess the small job did not interest them so I called Home Soulutions. I appreciated Roy's prompt reply and subsequent inspection of the site to assess the problem. I must thank Roy for providing your expertise in remediating the problem with the mold. Although a relatively small job you and Home Soulutions dealt with it effectively. Thanks for the great service and I would certainly recommend Roy and Home Soulutions for mold remediation problems.

Once mold has been identified in your home, isolating the type or measuring the spore count does not change the procedures for mold removal. Mold will actually ‘eat’ the structure of your home. It will reduce the value of your property. We can remove the mold in your home often in less than a day.

Temperature and humidity are major factors that will contribute to mold growth. Relative Humidity (RH) will depend on your location and will change with the seasons.
Mold spores can be found everywhere in the air outside as well as inside—they can be carried in on our clothes, on our pets, or through open windows
There are various methods frequently used to remove mould—sandblasting or soda blasting, encapsulation, or applying one of the many products available at your local hardware store—they are not all the same nor are they equally effective.
