What is Mould?
Mould is a fungus that can be found in damp building materials where it often appears like stains and comes in a variety of colours. A musty smell is an indication of microbial growth even when there is no visible growth. If mould is allowed to grow in buildings it can contribute to poor indoor air quality. Some moulds such as the Dry Rot Fungus – Serpula lacrymans, are highly destructive.
If your home has suffered water damage, mould can become an immediate risk to your property and your health. Seeking professional environmental services is critical in the first 48 hours to control the environment and mitigate the opportunity for mould growth to occur.
If you do find mould, we do not recommend that you attempt to clean it with household products such as bleach.

What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous mineral once widely used in the construction industry. It’s strength, flexibility, ability to withstand high temperatures and resist chemical degradation made it useful in hundreds of applications.
Left undisturbed, asbestos-containing materials do not pose a health risk. However, if any of these materials becomes compromised due to fire or water damage or is deliberately disturbed during renovations, the asbestos particles can become airborne. Exposure to these particles can lead to serious health implications, such as Mesothelioma (a type of lung cancer) or asbestosis (scarring of the lungs).
Any building built before 1990 has the potential to contain asbestos-containing materials.
