Water Damge to Mold Removal

Water Damage, if left unattended, will lead to Mold Growth. Moisture is the leading ingredient in causing mold spores to germinate and start spreading. Mold can grow as quickly as 24 - 48 hours after a Water Damage. It is extremely important to get the water extracted and the area dry as quickly as possible after your have experience a water damage. 


Water Damage can be caused by many different reasons;

  • Burst pipe
  • Sewage back up
  • Drain back up
  • Foundation cracks
  • Leaky roof
  • Human error
Major water damages should be dried out professionally. Canada's Restoration Services offers 24/7 emergency water damage services. Upon initial arrival we will:
  1. Identifying the source
  2. checking for moisture and humidity and;
  3. bring the affected area back to a dry standard

How is this done?

Upon arrival, an invasive search is done to ensure of finding where the water has come from. Next, equipment and tools are used to determine how far the water has travel. The tools used to determine this are thermal imaging guns and moisture meters. Finally, all the sitting water is extracted, all affected material is removed (drywall, carpet, flooring, etc) and drying equipment is set up. Anti microbial is applied to the affected area's to help prevent mold growth.


If the above is followed in a timely manner, mold growth should be prevented. 

If you had a flood, sewage damage or water damage ensure to call a professional. Prevent Mold Growth before it happens or it can end up costing you more money than the actual dry out. Give us a call today and we can be onsite within 45 mins for emergency water damage services.

Hi Helen, Yes, unfortunately if there is sitting water in the walls then there could be the potential for mold growth. The best option to start with is a indoor air quality test in the basement. That will let us know if there is any mold that is hiding in behind the walls. The other option as mentioned is to do a thermal scan to see if any sitting moisture is behind the walls that could lead to mold growth. Give us a call and we can discuss in further and arrange the appropriate procedure to start!

We had a city pipe burst in our home allowing water to get into our basement. we called city. they came out and fixed the pipe and cleaned up the water. From what I'm reading thermal imaging can see if there is moisture behind the walls but not mold. How do we know if there is mold growing there now?. I am concerned that there could be mold growing now.

We recently purchased a home in Calgary only to find out from neighbours that there had been a water damage in the basement. We were not informed about it at the time of buying. We now have a mold problem (that was well hidden during the inspection) in our forever home. Glad to read this article to help understand the process. We will contacting you shortly.
