If you’ve found mold in your home, you want to have it removed as soon as possible! Mold remediation in Toronto with Inch by Inch is the best way to remove mold safely and efficiently. Mold can quickly grow from a small patch to a large and dangerous infestation during periods of high rain, snow, or humidity. Mold removal in Toronto is the only reliable way to eradicate mold growth, but finding a trustworthy contractor can be challenging. Here are a few things Inch by Inch recommends asking a potential contractor.
Does the Company Have Liability Insurance?
Mold can weaken the structure of your home, creating unseen dangers. Any contractor you work with should have liability insurance that covers mold removal and remediation in Toronto. Liability insurance doesn’t just protect us, it also protects you in that case of unforeseen accidents. Insurance is also a good indicator of professionalism and shows that a company is serious about the quality and safety of their work.
Is the Company Certified?
Would you hire a plumber to re-roof your home? Well, maybe if that plumber is also a certified roofer, but it may not be a good idea otherwise! Certifications from relevant professional organizations are an excellent way to vet potential mold removal companies. At Inch by Inch, we are proud members of InterNACHI, the world’s leading association for home inspectors.
Professional certification gives us codes of conduct and professional guidelines that are constantly updated to follow current guidelines. They provide access to the newest and best research on mold removal in Toronto and information about special tools, equipment, and solutions for eradicating mold growth. These certifications ensure you’re bringing someone into your home that has the experience and knowledge to do the job safely and correctly.
Does the Company Have Experience with Mold Removal in Toronto?
While mold remediation in Toronto doesn’t differ too much from mold remediation in other parts of the province, working with a local contractor can make a difference. Homes in Toronto and the GTA can range in age from 100+ years old to new builds, and the differences in architecture, insulation, building practices, and geography can all affect how we do mold removal.
Different homes may need varied approaches, and working with a mold removal company that has experience working in your community and with homes similar to yours may help. It also means that they’ll be familiar with and comfortable with local building codes, ensuring that your mold removal follows the city’s guidelines for safety.
Does the Company Test for Mold Before and After Removal?
Mold testing before and after remediation is an essential step in successful mold removal. Testing before mold removal provides us with a baseline to compare with post-remediation and may indicate hidden pockets or areas of unseen mold growth. Without testing, you have no idea whether or not your mold remediation was a success, let alone safe.
