Understanding Mould

Mould spores exist almost everywhere. They’re present outdoors and indoors, and often the idea of mould and mould spores can be misunderstood. Mould is a natural occurring decomposer and much needed in nature.

Some inspectors and treaters us the phrase “mould removal” which can be misleading. Genics Inc. focuses on the term “Mould remediation” as we specialize in the correction and treatment of harmful mould and decay.

Below are some mould facts to consider:

  • Mould is everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mould spores are microscopic and they float in the air. They may enter your home through a wide variety of venues. This includes any passageway air has from the outdoors, and mould spores can even be carried on your body.
  • Mould is most susceptible to grow and spread in moist and humid areas, and increased temperatures can create a hotspot for mould to thrive.
