Mould spores thrive in damp environments. Couple that with water damage from a flood or leak and suddenly your, home, hotel, bank, school, retail shop or business could be causing headaches, respiratory illnesses or worse. GeoFocus’ microbial remediation is thorough. We handle mould abatement by evaluating all areas of the project:
- Inspection & assessment
- Written scope of work & technical reports
- Health & safety
- Containment to prevent contamination to unaffected areas
- Microbial remediation & removal
- Structure & content cleaning
- HVAC systems decontamination
- Dehumidification and moisture removal.
- In accordance with CCA 82, EACO and IICRC protocols
- All projects meticulously documented and photo-documented
Why GeoFocus? Because when consumers in the province of Ontario hire GeoFocus to perform mold remediation, mold abatement or mold removal, they are hiring
an Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, & Restoration Certification (IICRC) Certified Firm and IICRC Certified Technicians. Consumers should feel confident that when they retain GeoFocus they are retaining experts who will ensure that work will be completed in accordance with the Industry’s highest standards. To ensure our onsite technicians maintain the highest standards GeoFocus Mould Solutions also employs a full time American Council For Accredited Certification (ACAC) Council-certified Microbial Investigator (CMI). CMIs posses verified experience in microbial sampling, mold inspection or mold testing in one or more of the following settings: Offices and commercial buildings, Industrial structures, Government facilities, Schools and public buildings, Healthcare facilities and or Residential structures.
GeoFocus Mould Solutions believes that the treatment of various mould contaminated materials with chemicals alone is not a substitute for proper cleaning and remediation. Mouldy porous and semi-porous indoor materials should be ideally removed and discarded. Low cost fast acting remedies should be a cause for concern. Do not expose yourself or your company to unnecessary liability. GeoFocus Mould Solutions recommends that prior to retaining a Microbial Investigation / Mold Inspection Consultant or a Mold Remediation / Mold Abatement Contractor that they review the following documents:

According to the Canadian Construction Association “The method(s) used to remediate mould growth depends on the cause and extent of the growth, and often a variety of techniques and cleaning procedures are required to control the situation and minimize health risks due to exposure and the spread of contaminants. The materials subject to mould remediation also vary and include porous materials(e.g., furniture, carpet, etc.), structural elements (e.g. tile, insulation, etc.), and HVAC system components (e.g., air handling units, ducts, etc.). There is no one single Canadian body that provides training in mould remediation nor is there a definitive list of selection criteria for choosing a remediation contractor.” Furthermore ”The goal of mould remediation is to remove or clean contaminated materials and building components using proper work practices and isolation techniques so that no one’s health is compromised and the contaminants are contained.
