Bathroom mold removal should be a priority. Clearing out mold from from a bathroom as part of your renovation or upgrade should not be overlooked. This is an area where time and money are well spent. If your bathroom has poor ventilation fans mold can build up over time. Poorly installed workmanship can lead to water damage. Bathroom mold removal can remove both nontoxic and toxic black mold strains.
While working on a site with Doug Dupuis of Mold Busters, a Mississauga area business that does outstanding remediation in this field, I was amazed when he pointed out the mold spore count in the bathroom areas.
Doug was there to measure the mold count for a former grow op that was being rehabilitated. When the samples are taken, they are measured against an outdoor sample for a reference point. I asked him to take some samples in the master and hall bathrooms for me.
While the mold count was significant for the grow op areas, there was plenty of reason to suspect the bathroom and kitchen areas. There were no exhaust fans in the bathrooms and there was evidence of water damage in the drywall and visible mold on tiles and windows. The good news was that it was not toxic as yet.
Once the project was underway we stripped out material as we went and got the remaining surfaces cleaned with Concrobium mold cleaner.When the results came back we were very pleased with dramatically lower counts. Mold can be an unseen hazard in many older bathrooms, behind drywall and bathtub and shower areas. Another good reason to fully expose as much area as possible when doing a bathroom renovation, or if it is very visible on tiles, grout, caulking and window sills.
