GTA Restoration Buildings Emergency Fire Disaster Management Cycle

GTA Restoration Emergency Response on Standby in Toronto 24/7

Maintenance of any piece of equipment is what increases its Emergency Restoration Response. Almost everything in our life needs proper maintenance on a frequent basis to make everything run in perfect order. This brings us to the topic at hand, what to do when you are having problems with your house. The environmental disaster to artificial problems, all of them will show up without any proper warning or notification. It is always up to the owner to make sure they are prepared to handle the worst without damaging anything in the house.

But the damage is inevitable, the best the protection will do is lessen the damage for teaching extensive level. Keeping the house without any repair after the damage iwi makes things much worse. Countless time problems have happened on a large scale where people refuse to listen to the engineer or anyone tries to point out the problem with the house. Avoiding the problems will put the house in more trouble, this will reach a point of no return or it can lead to a total disaster. It is better to take the steps and fix the problem than wait and see.

This article will take you through all the problems that will affect your house and your living standard. Going through each step will help you make an educated decision at the end. When you know about the problem and what it does to the house, you will take better steps to bring the house back to life by shutting down the problem. Before we move on to the remedy first we have to take a stronger look at the things that hold back the house. Natural disasters and artificial handling are one of the common ways a house faces a serious amount of damages.

Natural Disasters Management

Natural disasters of any type will lead to the creation of all sorts of problems that will halt the life of anyone who has been affected by the disaster. Plenty of people have no idea on how to deal with events in this citation. As sometimes the disaster strikes without any notification and people have zero ideas on what to do and how to properly handle the citation without making matters worse. Flood is dangerous, and it will bring plenty of harm at the initial stage, but what follows also carries the same, if not, more dangerous risk for the people living in the house or apartment.

The damage will get done to all the areas of the building. Nearly everything will come in contact with water, not only will it make the living worse but it will make it hazard-friendly. Living in space will make life worse as many microorganisms will start to create unfriendly areas of the house. Soon they will change the environment to a breeding ground for more microbes to be born. This is why the government educates people on various steps and guidelines to handle them vs voles in the flood disaster.

Here we go through step by step assessing the problem and finding a solution for each one of them. Sometimes the small problem can be easily handled without the presence of an Emergency Restoration Response team of professionals by your side. And in many cases, especially with flood disasters, the guidelines of professionals will be needed for proper containment of the problem from spreading further into other regions.

Flooding Water Damage

GTA Restoration Flood Emergency Disaster Management Cycle Process

Damage caused by the flood can last for a lifetime. Houses located in a coastal area suffer from this issue every year. There are plenty of factors that do get played to ensure how much damage the house has suffered from the flood. A proper evaluation will give you the amount of money that you will need to spend on fixing and protecting your property in the long run. It is one of the natural disasters that can happen without any warning. The dangerous aspect of any flood is its severity.

The impact of floods is what makes the entire thing very dangerous. If the flood is severe then it will do plenty of food damage which later will cost more or higher cost of fixing. If you don’t have anyone how flood works and how much damage it does to a house. This section will provide you with all the details to know how dangerous flooding is and the steps you can take to limit the damage and fix the problem before it's too late.

How can flood damage your house?

There are countless ways a flood can damage the house, and this section will go through all of them so you will get an idea of what is going to happen when the flood hits the house. If your home has been damaged by a flood, then there are guidelines that can help you on what to do in this citation. Going back to the house without any proper check-up will put your and your family’s life in jeopardy. So a proper check-up will let you see all the flaws in the system so you repair the problems.

Structural and Electrical Damage

Flood damage will take a huge toll on the structural foundation of the house. Here the most vulnerable aspects will be loose bulking floors, roofs, cracks, and many other weak elements that will take a heavy blow from the flood attack. Any kind of cracks will let the water inside the wall, where it will damage the electrical outlets. Here it is better to stop touching any wire that is connected to the electrical supplies. These are some of the major places where the flood will have a negative effect.

Appliance Water Damage

The kitchen has a lot more equipment than just plants and forks. The heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, water heaters, and refrigerators will be compromised by the floodwater. The first thing that people, when the floodwaters get into the house, is to turn off the electricity. This makes the place hundreds of times safer for the appliances in the house and the family members from mistakenly touching them. CDC also asks people to throw any bad food away from the house to reduce the effect of flood damage. Lack of refrigeration will spoil a lot of food.

- Mold Contamination

It takes around 24 to 48 houses for mold to grow on a damp surface. Building materials, personal clothes, and functionality will be affected by mold contamination. The best way to get rid of the mold is by drying out your belongings after they come in contact with floodwater. You can use the fan or dehumidifiers to prevent the model process but do it once the electrician agrees for you to turn on the electricity.

- Water Damage & Septic System

Septic tank filters can get clogged with debris after a flood, the clogging in the system will prevent the tank from accepting water. It needs to be inspected and tested as soon as possible to see if it works or not. Testing your water before drinking it will be very critical for your health.

Steps you can take after flooding!

GTA Restoration Emergency Water Damage Disaster Management Cycle Process

Most of the time the severity of the floods forces people to evacuate their house to a safe location. If that is the case then you should not return to your residence until the local authorities allow you to do so. Even if you return to your house, make sure to check everything before thinking about using it.

Be cautious and observe the conditions of the house before entering the building. If you see any downed power lines then it is better to avoid them. Water can become electrically charged, stepping on might not be a great idea to do so after flood damage.

If you have insurance, then it is time to take a picture of your belongings that were damaged from the flood. Make sure to contact your insurance manager and let them know about the event. Most insurance companies do provide flood insurance policies, but you will not get these features when you are on a standard insurance policy.

These are some of the ways a flood will affect your house. Your house will require emergency plumbing to remove all the dangerous parts out of your system. The longer it stays the more damage it will inflict on the house and other accessories attached to the house. Taking care of them is only how you would get your life back together in a house that will be normal and secure to use.

Water Damage Categories

Something so simple as water can bring plenty of dangerous elements to your house leaving it broken. There are categories of water that you should know to speculate the damage it can do to your place in a  natural disaster. Below you are going to water is categorized into three different parts. Each section shows water in a different state than what it used to be in the previous category. This will give you the clue to how water changes its form once it gets evolved into the next stage.

●     Category #1 - Clean Water

Most of the residents have access to clean water as they use it on a daily basis. But an overflowing source of clean water will break the domestic water supply lines, malfunction the appliances, make toils useless. Clean water if not controlled well will deteriorate the structure surfaces and content materials.

●     Category #2 - Gray Water

Here, unlike clean water, common water will have a significant degree of chemicals and biological contamination. Overflow of this water will cause discomfort and sickness in a person. This kind of water is also referred to as gray water. Gray water is known to carry microorganisms that come with more harm than any benefits whatsoever. Normally in a house, gray water gets discharged from dishwashers and washing machines, overflow from toilet bowls, condensate water, fire protection sprinkler water.

This kind of water contains chemicals and bio-contaminants such as fungal, bacterial, and viral algae. This raises the contamination to an alarming level. Gray water in a flooded structure if not treated well in time will turn into black water.

●     Category #3 Black Water

Normally people have 24 to 38 hours to treat the gray water otherwise it will turn into black water. When water is called black water, it contains pathogenic agents arising from sewage and other contaminated water sources affecting the indoor environment. The color of the water will also change, usually, that gives the sign of damaged water. The water in this category includes sewage rainwater mixed with rising water from rivers and streams. All of them work together to create the properties behind black water.

The best step to follow after you are having doubts about the water quality in your house after flood damage is to conduct a heavy inspection. The inspection will give you all the clues that you need to make a serious decision at the end. The inspection has to be detailed and it should cover all the aspects of water migration in the house. It must take in the affected materials and the degree of damage water has done to the appliances in the house. This information will paint the final picture of how much it will cost to fix the problem.

Here is the list of comprehensive inspections that get performed after water inspection. Each step will help reveal a lot of useful information about water damage in the house.

- Identifying the health and safety hazards
- Determining the source of water
- Inspecting the water damage rate
- Analyzing the scope area
- Evaluating the materials on the floor
- Checking the inventories and other content items
- Evaluating the HVAC system.
- Checking on the structural materials

Process of Dehumidification.

After a proper analysis comes emergency plumbing to stop the problem at the right time. Removal of excess water is the only way to restore a house back to its previous state. This will get done by physical methods such as mopping, soaking up the excess moisture from hard surfaces. If the amount of water in the house is beyond the limit of the normal level, then using pumps is the best way to remove the water from the house to the outside. Removing excess water requires a lot of technical equipment. After that comes evaporation.

When the excess water is removed then the remaining water must be turned into the liquid to a vapor by the process of evaporation. This gets done by using air-moving equipment. This equipment will successfully remove the moisture in the air making the place moisture-free. Once the moisture is out of the structural materials then it will get into the air, this will then get removed by the process of dehumidification. Failure to remove moisture in the air will result in secondary damage that will present a health hazard in the place.

Once the dehumidification process has been completed it is time to control the temperature of the place. The growth of microorganisms is all related to the temperature in the house. Modifying the temperature will reduce the growth of microorganisms. Any structure that has been damaged needs to be monitored for initial assessment and evaluation.

Sewage Backup Contamination Clean-up!

GTA Restoration Emergency Flooding Disaster Management Cycle Process

Water damage is well known to most people. As it can create hazardous situations faster and risk the health of the people living in the house or in an apartment. Because water carries plenty of microorganisms that help it to grow to further levels. It can also carry plenty of pathogens and allergens that are harmful to humans. These are the ways something as simple as water can create a biohazard in the living environment.

Sewage problems require appropriate actions that will suppress the extensive damage to the furnishing and other parts of the building in time. The cause behind the problem will not show up after the elapse of several days. Not taking any action will make the matter much worse where disease-causing microorganisms will soon start to take place in the area. The water inside found in the building wall will help the microbial to grow on structural materials and contents.

Which takes us to the sewage control in the house. Controlling the content of sewage will keep the environment safe from getting any sort of harm. There are three ways this problem can be dealt with in the worst-case scenario events. Different scenarios will require their own way of dealing with the problem instead of enhancing it,

Case #1 - Kitchen Sink Backup Sewage Contamination

This is where waste is found in one specific location and is contained. There are no traces of waste in other areas of the building structure.  Samm amount of waste leads to less exposure and less contact time. If the contact time is less, then the waste has not been contaminated with other forms of disinfection making matters worse. The limited quantity of waste can easily be controlled without any sort of potential health risk.

Case #2 - Bathroom Sink Backup Sewage Contamination

In this case, we see water and waste get involved in the building’s structure and furnishings. This where a limited amount of waste is confined to a small area of the building. Unlike case 1, here we see a small area of the building confined to this situation. But the infiltration of the waste will be difficult to remove as it would be some of the most complex areas of the building. Here decontamination includes drying out all the surfaces that have come in contact with the sewage and use of disinfectant on the carpet. The wall material needs to be evaluated properly, if it is not damaged well then the use of disinfectant will get the job done poorly. If the situation is worse, then the walls need to be replaced.

Case #3 - Toilet Backup Sewage Contamination

In this situation, waste has been widely dispersed and penetrates the structure and its furnishings. Here humans will be exposed to the raw waste that has penetrated the building and furnishings. Humans will come in contact with pathogenic raw wastes that have penetrated the walls and their furnishing. This case will require a complete evacuation of the occupants from the building. So a proper method can be followed to restore the sewage process completely.

The professionals here will have to be equipped with respirators, HEPA cartridges, rubber boots, gloves, splash goggles, and other protective measurements that will keep them safe from catching anything or coming in close with any sort of bacteria. The restoration process here won’t be as easy as in the last two cases. This situation requires better control over the problem, the restoration professionals here have to make sure they don’t puncture wounds during the process. If a staff member has open cuts or sores, then they should stay away from the project.

Decontamination using a Disinfectant.

In these cases remediation should be processed as soon as possible, the longer the contamination is allowed to be in the environmental area, the greater the damage it will be in the future. Certainly, the rise of microbial growth will affect the cleaner environment of the living space. If the assessment reports the problem to be bigger than the unprotected occupants and workers should evacuate from the affected areas. This should get done in the initial stages of decontamination. After the water removal, any affected materials should be decontaminated by disinfectant spray. Although they will do a fantastic job in reducing the contamination of these objects, they are never the solution for a 100% clean-up.

Each material should be evaluated for its contamination level. So effective measurement can be taken afterward. If heavier organic matter is present, then it should be physically removed by using shovels, squeegees, septic pump trucks, wet vacuums, or any moisture extraction machines. If the material is residual organic matter, it can be cleaned by using a disinfectant. The extraction unit must be followed after the disinfectant solution to prevent the migration of contaminants. If an object was part of the heavier organic matter then it must be decontaminated again after the first decontamination using a disinfectant.

A thorough cleaning of all contaminated material will keep most of the material safe from infection. After the second application of disinfectant must be followed.

Mold Removal & Remediation

Flood-damaged houses will need special care to remove the model properly. Not taking quick action will make the mold grow in a larger proportion. If a material stays in the water for longer than three days, then the mold would start appearing on the parts of the model. If it goes untreated, the expansion of mold will begin, and quickly it will create a health hazard for the people living in the area. This will reach a point where it will be much more difficult to control the mold. All of this will happen because of the delay in cleaning up and drying out.

If the mold starts to appear on the parts of the house, then it's better to take pictures of the insurance claims. Some insurance companies do not cover mold removal. So if that is the case with yours then taking the action by yourself is the best way to deal with the problem. Mold is a type of fungi that breaks down dead materials. All They need to grow in an environment is the right type of environment.

A flooded area makes an excellent breeding ground for mold to grow on and expand to larger areas. They prefer to be in a moisture, nutrient area to be a place to expand. The main ingredient of their growth is moisture. In a flood region, this will be the case in almost every part of the area. But there are ways to deal with mold problems effectively. Depending on the proportion of the mold infection, you can take the action by yourself or give a call to professionals to take care of them.

As they will be much more equipped with all the right parts to deal with mold problems and take them out effectively out of the living environment. Here are the steps that get the mold removal process started.

- First thing first, safety, you must equip yourself with all the right gear, because at the end of the day, you are dealing with mold.

Air Quality Testing How is your air quality in your home Toronto

Interpretation of Mold Spores from Air Test Results

What is the Acceptable Level for Indoor Mold Spores Testing Result - Guide for mold count levels: acceptable and unacceptable?

One of the highest accepted methods of assessing indoor air quality testing and its effects on all building's occupants iare usually the analysis of indoor air quality testing samples. Often these types of air samples are acquired using portable vacuum pumps that are calibrated to pull airflow through a tube at a specific volume of air per minute. The airflow that is pulled into the pump is trapped in a specially made cassette that contains an adhesive slide. Fungal, bacterial spores, airborne particulate that matters are deposited into the adhesive slide, which is then are analyzed under a microscope.

The analysis of these mold spore tape slides can provide results relatively accurately quickly because the samples don't require culturing or growing fungal spores. However, produce spores that are very similar as to not be distinguishable by visual from analysis alone and are grouped together, e.g., Aspergillus/Penicillium. And still, other mold spore types lack identifiable characteristics and do get counted as the part of the larger group, such as Ascospores and Basidiospores.

Typically, all fungus spores assessment of indoor air quality takes into account not only the analysis result of the indoor air samples but also the comparison of these bacterial spore results to all levels of fungi and other airborne in an outdoor air sample. Bacterial spore count levels in indoor air samples most generally should be lower than levels in outdoor air quality samples. Indoor bacteria spore counts that usually are lower than outdoor spore counts; however, we do not automatically indicate that usually the indoor air quality testing is acceptable. High-level counts of individual types of spores count of the total spores in indoor air quality samples may indicate fungus mold growth inside buildings. The conclusions are that indoor mold growth is occurring might be strengthened further if mold spore flowering bodies – called hyphae – they also are identified in the indoor air sample.

There are many other types of considerations to keep in mind when comparing outdoor comparison spore counts to indoor spore counts. The outside aerobiology is not always constrained because of the variable from the change of outside weather. For example, in the winter seasons, the spore count is always low outside samples. Similarly is in rainy weather causes spores to get washed away or tamped down from outside surfaces, resulting in a lower spore count in air samples. Also, in a warmer weather, the evaporation process can as well cause mold spores to rise in the air. Outside air quality has less influence on indoor air quality, on more energy-efficient buildings as well as people's tendency do sometimes leave windows closed and rely use on indoor air conditioning. As a result, when particular species of mold spores – Stachybotrys / Chaetomium, for example – are found in indoor samples cassettes, even in a low count, their presence indicates a seriously high level of indoor mold issue because these mold spore types are not found in outdoor samples.


Raw Spores Count – the number of mold spores actually identified and counted on the adhesive air sample slideSpores per Cubic Meter (Count/m3) – calculated by raw spore count x (1000/(rate of air test sampling) x (sampling test time)The Total Background – Amount of particulate matter fragments present on the slide; graded from 1-5 to 1 being very little, while other debris ratings of 5 are unreadable. The higher the rating the most likely spores may be underestimated and overlap with background particulates.


Fibrous Particulate – Fibrous particulates can mostly come from many different sources, including clothing, floor textiles, building materials, and other paper products. They often are introduced into the air due to turbulence forces and do friction applied into these materials. Improperly cleaned or maintained airflow ventilation sometimes increases the distribution of fibrous particulates.

Skin particulates – the dead skin cells either from humans or pets. Dead skins are continually shed by all the inhabitants of a home. Thousands type of cells per day slough off from each person and into the living environment. Of course, also pets shed lots of dead skin cells. Skin cells gradually do push their way into the top layer. When they do reach the top, they die and are "weathered" by the environment from people's daily activities.

Particulate matter (PM) – and skin particulates can sometimes be inhaled into the lungs where they are absorbed into the bloodstream. They are a respiratory irritant and this can cause many pulmonary effects such as coughing, respiratory illnesses, bronchitis, lung disease, these symptoms increase airway reactivity and exacerbation of asthma. Particulate matter also are thought to have direct effects to the heart (EPA 2008c). Recent mortality studies have shown many times a statistically significant direct association between mortality and daily concentrations from particulate matter in the air space. Numerous of many studies link PM to many varieties of health effects, which include aggravated asthma, increases respiratory symptoms (irritation of the difficulty breathing, airways, coughing,), and decreases lung function in young children.

Hyphal fragments – Hyphae are small fragments from the mycelium of a mold. Mycelium is a mass of hyphae, this are vegetative of the body portion of the mold. It is very common to find numbers of hypha fragments in outdoor air quality testing and possibly in indoor dust. Their presence in the indoor air quality samples are in a high quantity or as large segments do indicate active mold growth in the building. If the conditions are suitable, the hypha fragments begins to grow and eventually lead to mold spore production.

Indoor air mold standard – There is no state or federal statutes or regulations yet regarding molds and disturbed indoor air quality. Acceptable levels for the individual from mold species since bacteria species toxicity varies highly as do the spore sizes, the weight, and other features that can affect the risk to building occupants. However, many public agencies make various publications regarding mold contamination on indoor air quality available for the public. Aspergillus / Penicillium in a "clean" residential building studies ware at a mean of 230/m3; Aspergillus / Penicillium in buildings are known to have moisture and or flooding problem was at 2235/m3; Aspergillus / Penicillium in mold-contaminated buildings was at 36,037/m3.

The publication, From American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (Air Quality Testing Sampling Instruments for Evaluation of Atmospheric Contaminants 1995), they recommended from the following guidelines:

100 cfu or less for cubic meter of air quality disturbed usually indicates low risk.100 cfu to 1000 cfu for cubic meter of air quality disturbed usually indicates intermediate risk.1000 or more cfu for cubic meter of air quality disturbed usually indicates a high risk.

Many people still believe that spore count of 40 Stachybotrys or Chaetomium spores/m3. The air quality testing disturbed would be unusually high as this mold contamination is usually not normally airborne. Conversely, a count of 199 Aspergillus sp. spores/m3. The air quality in the same circumstances might be considered very clean.

After the study and reviewing the literature standards of indoor the mold spores, Enzcycle Lab, LLC They propose the following actions:

spores/m3 of air


> 500


No Action is Required


500 – 999


Remediation is required

GTA Restoration Emeregency Call Toronto Mold Article Blog

Mold removal is considered emergency plumbing.

What are the top five common mold related questions? Read on to find out.

While mold can be beneficial in certain cases, such as in the case of cheese, it’s definitely not beneficial in your home. If you have problems with mold in your home, you may be looking for mold removal. Mold is caused by excessive humidity and lack of ventilation. Mold is dangerous because it contains mycotoxins that can cause many adverse health effects. The best way to deal with mold is to prevent it from happening at all with adequate ventilation.              While it’s technically possible to remove mold yourself, it’s best to leave it to a professional such as an emergency plumber. Mold removal can be a bit expensive, but it’s an emergency plumbing issue that must be fixed right away.  Read on to learn more about the dangers of mold, how to prevent mold, whether it’s possible to remove mold yourself, and how much mold removal typically costs.

Looking for Toronto mold removal? We can help.

H4:  What causes mold?

              Mold develops when there is an overly wet environment. This is often caused by improper ventilation and high or uncontrolled humidity. It’s important to choose quality ventilation to help prevent mold growth; cross ventilation is most effective at controlling humidity.  60% humidity or more is considered a high humidity level. Anything at or above this level will provide ideal conditions for mold to grow.

Why is mold dangerous?

              Mold, in many cases, can be toxic. Many types of mold produce mycotoxins – which are toxins that can become airborne. Mycotoxins can cause a variety of health problems and are considered a serious health threat by the World Health Organization. Effects of mycotoxins can range from short-term acute mycotoxin poisoning to long-term health effects such as immune deficiency or cancer.

              If you suspect you have mold, it’s important to call a mold removal service or an emergency plumber right away.

How can mold be prevented?

              One way to prevent mold growth is by using a hygrometer. A hygrometer is a device that measures humidity. Hygrometers can easily be purchased online at a low cost. You can also purchase specialty devices called mold alarms if you’d like to be extra safe.

Can I complete mold removal myself?

              Technically, yes, you can. However, it’s extremely dangerous and requires very specific procedures. The best mold removal is done by an expert that has experience, education, certifications, and equipment. Unless you have no other choice, or you have experience, do not remove mold yourself.

How much does mold removal cost?

Mold removal costs vary depending on your location. Mold removal in Toronto, or the Greater Toronto Area, starts at $500 and goes up depending on severity. The cost may be a deterrent but remember that mycotoxins (which are produced by mold) can cause severe health problems. You should never wait on mold removal services.


A high humidity level can cause mold in the home. Several different factors can lead to a high humidity level in the home, including where the home is located, if the house is heated in Winter (and how much), and whether humidity is often trapped inside. One example of when humidity being trapped inside the home is after a long shower with shut windows. Condensation is also a factor, particularly in the winter. Temperature differences between indoors and outdoors can cause condensation, which will raise the humidity of the home.

After reading this article, you’re better equipped than ever to understand and prevent mold in your home.  Thanks for reading.

Water Damage Causes Black Mold Growth in Toronto House!

How Water Damage Causes Mold Growth?

Precautions to take during the winter in Toronto!

Indoor mold is a concern for many homeowners. Mold has no smell, and a large colony must form before it’s visible to the human eye. As such, you might not realize if your house is contaminated. This can lead to a series of problems, one of which concerns your overall health. With the health risks related to mold, in addition to the on-going pandemic and flu season, it’s important to take precautions to ensure you and your family are safe. Here a comprehensive guide you can use if indoor mold is a concern.

What is Indoor Fundi Mold Growth?

Normally, people think of moldy food which is a result of leaving it out too long. While you can easily discard your moldy fruits and vegetables, the mold that grows on your floorboards, drywall, and carpets is far more tedious to handle.

Mold is a type of fungi. Mold spores can exist in any environment, but it will only grow in places that have the appropriate growing factors. This includes the right temperatures, moisture, oxygen, and food. When the environment has met the criteria, the mold spores begin to grow onto the surface and multiply. As they multiply they form a mycelium.

How does indoor Fungi Mold grow?

Indoor mold can ruin the structure of your home and lead
to poor health conditions for you and your family. 4 factors allow mold to grow
and spread.

Temperature: Generally, humid conditions allow for mold to grow at faster rates. Any temperature above 4 Celsius, allows for mold to grow.

Moisture: Damp and wet areas allow mold to spread and multiply. This is why water damages present a grave concern for homeowners.

Oxygen: Mold can rely on limited oxygen to grow and thrive.

Organic surfaces: Mold thrives on surfaces they can digest such as wood, cotton, etc. Since any organic surface makes for a suitable environment, mold can exist on many areas.

How does Water Damage lead to Mold Growth?

Since moisture is an important factor in mold growth, water damaged surfaces in your home makes for a suitable environment. Water damage can be a result of leaking pipes or flooding. Additionally, if exhausts and ventilators do not work properly during showers or cooking, this can lead to mold growth as well. Furthermore, when mold begins to grow it eats away at the surface leading to brittle and damaged floorboards, beams, and more.

If water damage is not contained, mold can begin to form in 1-2 days. This is why it's important to deal with these damages quickly. Furthermore, it’s best to remove all appliances or furniture that were affected. Since mold can grow on so many surfaces it's important to remove these damp items from your home.

What are the Health Risks with Fungi Mold Growth?

There are numerous health risks when there is mold exposure in your house. It ranges from mild to serious symptoms and diseases. The inhalation of mold heavily impacts individuals with pre-existing health conditions, the elderly, and children.

Many people are sensitive to mold. An allergic reaction can occur which leads to watery eyes, excessive sneezing, etc. Additionally, damp conditions as a result of water damage can lead to fevers, bronchitis, skin irritation, headaches, and more. Many of these reactions could be happening without awareness that there is mold growing in your household. As such, it’s important to continually examine your home for signs of water damage.

One of the most serious lifelong effects of mold exposure is the potential to develop asthma. Asthma results in a lack of airflow to the lungs due to excessive mucus in the air pathway or a swelling of the pathway. This respiratory disease has been heavily linked to mold found within homes. Research has shown that of all 21.6 million cases of asthma in America, 21% of those cases (4.6 million people) were not genetically related. As such, 4.6 million people developed asthma, due to mold exposure within their homes. That’s nearly double Toronto’s population. Asthma can result in serious complications with children and they must live with it throughout adulthood.


Mold Fungi Exposure and COVID-19

            It’s important to remember that there is an on-going pandemic due to COVID-19. This virus can be deadly and leave lasting health effects on individuals with pre-existing health conditions. With a second wave arriving, it’s important to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.

This on -going virus in combination with possible mold growth in your home can lead to devastating health problems. Both are linked to respiratory health effects and can weaken your immune system. These factors added together will place you at a higher risk for life-threatening health conditions. Making sure your office disinfecting your surfaces and paying attention to water damage is crucial. As such, while we all must wait for a viable solution to come along for COVID-19, at least you can prevent mold exposure in your homes.

How to Prevent Fungi Mold Growth Exposure?

            In order to prevent the growth of mold, you must ensure you don’t create a suitable habitat for mold to survive. Here are some general tips you may consider:

- Ensure the humidity in your home is less than 60%. This makes sure that mold cannot grow on surfaces in your house. Using a hygrometer will indicate what level your household’s humidity is.
- Turn on the exhaust fan during showers to avoid moisture build-up.
- Fix leak pipes as soon as you can before turning them into water damage.
- Wipe down all wet surfaces in your home to lessen the chances of mold growth; this includes floors, countertops, walls, etc.

How to Stop Fungi Mold Growth Exposure?

            If mold has already grown in your home or you notice water damage in certain places, no need to panic. Handling these situations quickly will ensure mold stops growing or prevent it from growing.

            If the mold growth is small or medium, you may be able to handle it quickly by yourself. Make sure you wear disposable masks and safety materials such as goggles to avoid direct exposure. Generally, this involves:

- Scrub washable surfaces that contain mold with unscented soap and dry
- Vacuum areas that are not washable with a central vacuum system
- Removing all moldy wet areas. Even if the drywall is wet or water damage, you must remove it to avoid mold coming back

If you’re unexperienced with mold control, the best option is to seek a professional. Do what you can to help stop the spread before a profession arrives. 24-hour service is also offered by some professionals. These professionals are trained in safety precautions and techniques to properly remove water or mold damaged areas.

When to Call a Professional Plumber? Handling water damage or mold is often a big task. You may not know where to begin and lack to equipment to do the job properly. As such, health agencies often recommend that you call a professional if you notice any water damages or mold growth. For large molded areas, a professional is capable of cleaning the area promptly and efficiently. They’ll help prevent the chances of mold growing in that area again by removing all affected areas, ensuring the safety of your family.

Sanitization & Disinfection Services Toronto!

Coronavirus has become one of the pandemic situations being faced by the world. Coronavirus is a type of novel virus that was initiated from China back in January 2020 and now it is being spread throughout the world.

Novel Coronavirus is a part of
respiratory disease which is mainly caused due to the droplets of the person
who has been infected by the Coronavirus. Throughout the world, people are
continuously taking preventive measures through which the virus disinfection
could be done in the right manner.

If we dig deeper into the nature
of the Coronavirus and how it is being spread then, it is important to
understand that Coronavirus belongs from the family of viruses which can easily
be found in the human, animals such as camels, cattle, cats and also the bats.
Since the spread of coronavirus is on the peak at the moment, therefore, all
the services need to be customized according to the needs of the environment.

According to the World Health
Organization, one of the ways through which this virus could be properly
controlled is associated with proper sanitization and decontamination

Virus Disinfection and Sanitization Services in Toronto

Being the pioneer and leaders of the social responsibility and public safety, GTA Restoration owns the vision of providing uninterrupted disinfection and sanitization services to Toronto and to the people who are going through the hard time associated with the spread of coronavirus.

Since all of our services revolve around providing the best high to the people therefore, we have divided our teams in to different units that are responsible for virus disinfection and virus decontamination.

Major Services for Virus Decontamination and Disinfection

The major services for virus decontamination and disinfection are associated with performing all the procedures through which the germs could be rightly eliminated without getting transmitted from one person to another. Being the leaders, we believe in working around all the vaccines which could provide the best results and could relatively have a lesser impact on human life.

Apart from only cleaning the surfaces and stair-cases, we also perform the cleanup procedures at the public places which are largely occupied by people. Additionally, the virus cleanup procedure is also performed near all those places where human interaction is possible with other beings such as animals.

Works on the Principles of Public Safety

Since public safety is one of our cores therefore, we are always utilizing the objects and the items which are important for public safety. The goal of performing the virus disinfection is entirely associated with using the product and services which are crucial for the health of human beings at the same time.

Proper Sanitization Procedures is to Rub Back Hand-washing

Sanitization is an important
procedure that is not only performed for the sake of cleaning hands. However,
it is equally important to properly sanitize all those items which are directly
or indirectly connected with humans. We consider it as our public
responsibility to work and identify all those sources through which the proper
disinfection could be performed. To provide the best services, our company has
decided to insert proper sanitization facilities at all those public places
which are largely accessed by human beings and people are also advised to
follow the basic guidelines through which they can stay away from all the

Follow Up services for Better Precautions and Treatment

It is very important to
understand that Coronavirus is not a virus which can get eliminated with a few
precautionary measures which are limited to certain time. However, for proper
virus cleanup, certain follow-up services need to be performed which could
ensure that every object and every human being is potentially free from the

Although we consider it as our
core responsibility to perform the follow-up services in which we not only look
at the objects which are at the risk of curbing the coronavirus cells, we also pay
great attention to all those people who might be at the risk of catching the
flu or breathing issues.

- A daily sanitization and cleanup of objects and one’s body need to be done frequently to eliminate the chance of spread.
- While coughing or sneezing, it is recommended by WHO to use a tissue paper that can be thrown away once it is used.
- People are also recommended to maintain once hand (3 feet) distance with the people to control the overall spread of the virus.
- It is also recommended by the leading health agencies to wash and sanitize hands frequently so that the overall germs of the virus could be cleaned and the virus cleanup could be performed.
- People are asked to wear a mask around all those people who are currently being infected by flu, sneezing, or even the common cold.
- All those people who have traveled to different countries in the world are asked by the government not to stay in contact with people for at least 14 days because it takes some time for the virus to develop.
- If the virus is confirmed then, it can be controlled using all the necessary measures.

Help in Minimizing the Overall Health Risks

There is certainly no denying the fact that a lot of health risks are associated with the spread of coronavirus because it is infecting several people at one time. However, it is also important to understand that the overall risk could be minimized using the virus cleanup campaigns in which all the measures would be taken to perform the procedure in the right manner.

Since the spread of the virus could only be performed if all the people living in the state decides to perform the virus cleanup all together without getting distracted by the common panic situations which are being caused throughout the world.

In this hard time, we need to join hands all together to curb the spread of coronavirus. If you have any other questions or queries then, feel free to leave your comments below and we’ll get back to with ways through which virus cleanup could be executed in the right manner.
