Is Mold Dangerous In My Home

The key to mold control is moisture control.

Having a leaky basement is bad enough.  A wet, damp basement is not a fun thing to have and leaves you with only entering the basement when you have to.  Not fun.  A more serious bi-product of a chronic water leak in your basement is the growth of mold.  Here in Toronto, between the weather and the age of many homes, we get called to many homes for serious mold problems.  The problem always has a water leak or chronic dampness as the origin.

For a healthy individual, mold isn’t very dangerous, it’s just gross.  The real health problems with mold occur when an individual already has a compromised respiratory system (elderly, infants,sick people,etc) or there is long term exposure to mold spores.

Mold grows very fast once it takes hold, especially when there is moisture present to serve as a breeding ground.  We’ve all left seemingly perfect fruit on the counter overnight to discover a “fuzz farm” growing on our strawberries the next morning.  Yes, it spreads pretty fast once it gets going.

Check out the infographic below that describes some of the hidden dangers of mold growth and airborn mold spores in the home.  If you have questions about mold removal in your home or would like a free in-home estimate, you can contact us here.

Basement Waterproofing

Our basement leaked! Of course . . . we bought a 100 year old house! But my office needed to be in the basement permanently. I interviewed 10 different companies until we decided on the Steinbergs and their crew at Nu-Site! They are professional, reliable, courteous, honest, and they really make an effort to communicate with the client about every step of the process.

Foundation and Waterproofing Repairs

After several years of chronic leaks, we decided to have our basement waterproofed once and for all. The team over at Nusite was professional, answered my questions during the project and stayed within their quoted price....which is always a concern for me when working with contractors. Great job overall

Basement Waterproofing

Had several cracks in my basement wall and they would leak whenever we had a heavy rain. It started about a year and a half ago and seems to have gotten worse over the past 6 months. I tried having my neighbor seal it, but it started leaking again within a few weeks. Called several waterproofing companies and got several quotes. Finally went with Nusite contractors for the job. They gave a reasonable quote and I liked the guy that came by for the estimate. They stayed within budget and cleaned up before they left. It's been almost 3 months now and it seems to be working great.
