- Will turning up the heat help dry things out?
- What is black mould?
- How long will mould removal in my home take?
Not necessarily. Our trained technicians will adjust the temperature to its optimum setting for the proper drying conditions. Once set, do not change the setting or shut off the HVAC system; doing so may prolong the drying process.
Black mould (Statchybotrys chartarum) is greenish-black in colour and grows in conditions where there is an excessive amount of moisture over a long period of time. Water damage, excessive humidity, water leaks and condensation in small, damp places like bathrooms all create a perfect breeding ground for black mould. Black mould releases microtoxins, a noxious substance that can cause serious health problems for humans and pets.
Depending on the scope of the project and the amount of mould damage to your home, the mould remediation process may require several phases before completion. A thorough evaluation and assessment of all damage will be done before the estimate of a completion date can be established. Through it all, your ServiceMaster Restore Project Manager will communicate details to you clearly and effectively, to make the process seamless.
