What is toxic mould?

Astra Construction Management, based out of Calgary and serving also the surrounding area, is intimately aware of toxic mould and the harm it can cause, both to property and to your health. We specialize in the remediation of mould-contaminated properties. Mould remediation requires expert training. Treating mould contamination yourself will not only put your property at greater risk, but will jeopardize your short- and long-term health as well. However, knowing how to spot mould is essential.

Mould exists all around us. We make contact with it every day. However, some moulds are toxic and pose serious health hazards. These moulds produce mycotoxins, which are themselves responsible for most health problems associated with prolonged mould exposure. When we are exposed to these toxins at home or in the workplace, these toxins become increasingly dangerous. They colonize damp and water-damaged surfaces or those spaces affected by flooding. Humid locations, use of inappropriate building materials, and a lack of proper ventilation provide opportunities for mould spores to colonize and flourish, causing long-term health problems to those exposed. These exposures happen in both commercial and home environments.

Recent flooding has made toxic mould exposure a common problem in Calgary and other centres in Alberta. Even long after the flood event has ended, mould continues to affect flood-damaged properties in the Calgary, Alberta, area. Remember, just because the water has receded or dried, doesn’t mean that your risk of mould has been abated. Astra Restorations specializes in remediating these infestations.

If you suspect mould in your home, commercial, or industrial property, call Astra Restorations. We have the certified experience and training to render your property safe once again. We work hard, efficiently and expertly, to restore both your mould-contaminated property and your peace of mind. At Astra, the safety of your family, employees, and yourself is our priority.
