The Smell of Mould

Have you ever picked up a loaf of bread that smelled like your grandpa’s pyjamas? If you do, then you know the smell of mould. Musty and old-smelling, mould is devastating to a home if not properly handled. If you are ever unsure whether or not you are smelling mould, please contact Grimebusters for a friendly professional to take a look for you. It’s always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your health. 

If mould is spotted, it is government-mandated that it be taken care of. Mould is hazardous and can result in health complications. It can be very tricky to get rid of yourself, so please always talk to a professional for mould removal services if you spot mould in your home.

Mould Prevention

The best way to do mould removal is to never have a mould problem in the first place, right? Here are our best tips for preventing mould:

  • Do a regular roof check to look at the condition of your shingles and eaves troughs. If any need replacing, do so as soon as possible.
  • Make sure your window wells are installed correctly and maintained adequately. Any leaks or gaps could lead to mould due to weather conditions in Edmonton.
  • Inspect your sump pump regularly for signs of mould. It is a wet environment, so it is naturally at a higher risk of developing mould. If you smell anything funky, call us.
  • Be aware of the slope grade around your residence. The ground should carry water away from your home, not into the basement. If there is no slope leading away from your home, inspect further for signs of mould.

If you see any issues when inspecting the above, please do not leave it be. Mould spreads and is a serious issue, especially to kids and pets.
