Home SOULutions Remediation Ltd. has been providing mold removal, clean-outs, ventilation repairs and insulation upgrades to attics, crawlspaces and bathrooms since 2012. Healthy homes are our specialty!
Mould or mold, no matter how you spell it – it still spells trouble. If you know or even suspect that mold may be present in your home, our certified technicians can help with identification, removal and prevention.
We offer professional mold remediation (removal) services for crawlspaces, attics and the interior of your home. We don’t just cover it up or fog it – we remove it. Our technicians will help you determine the cause and assist you with the repairs and upgrades needed to prevent it from returning.
Inspections & Assessments
You may not always see the mold in your home, instead, you may notice a musty or dank odour in a specific room. Our technicians have years of experience and training in mold recognition and assessment and use the most up-to-date tools. When they conduct a home inspection, you can be assured they will find the mold if its there.
Air Quality Testing
Curious about testing for mold spores? We conduct air quality testing for homeowners, pre and post-remediation, as well as sampling and analysis for home buyers. In this process, air samples are taken from any rooms/areas of concern and compared with an outdoor sample. After analysis you are provided with a written report of spore counts.
Removing mold is just the first step. Our Home SOULutions techs will help you identify the cause and prevent it from happening again – keeping your home healthy. The number one cause of mold growth is lack of ventilation or incorrect ventilation. Once we remove the mold, we’ll repair and update the ventilation issues in your home since good ventilation and airflow systems make it hard for mold to settle and grow.
Fan Exhaust Connection Upgrades
A common cause of attic mold is incorrect bath fan exhaust connections. They often leak moist air into your attic which creates the perfect environment for mold. Our experienced technicians will bring your fan ducting up to code to avoid future problems.
Fan Roof Stem Vents
To avoid mold growth in your attic it is important that your fan exhaust connections are venting directly out the roof through a correctly installed stem vent. If they are not, the Home SOULutions techs will let you know. We work with a qualified roofer to repair or replace them.
Bathroom Fan Installs
New bathroom fans circulate more air and are quieter than older fans. Our technicians install high airflow, quiet and energy-efficient fans. The more airflow in your home, the less chance mold spores will grow. The quieter the fan, the more often your family will turn it on. Let us help you improve the air quality in your home today.
Attic & Crawlspace Services
Whether you’ve had an infestation or it’s just time for a clean-out of your attic or crawlspace. We have the equipment and skills needed to safely remove all kinds of insulation, debris, dust , droppings and inspects. Our technicians will leave your attic disinfected and smelling wonderful again.
Rats, raccoons — even otters — we have seen it all! While these furry little critters may look cute, they can cause a lot of damage and odour in your insulation. Is it time for a clean-out? Let us do the dirty work for you. We will also identify and block critter access points.
All of our attic or crawlspace insulation removal and cleaning jobs are finished up with a thorough hepa-vacuum, and a disinfectant and deodorizing treatment. Your attic or crawlspace will be clean and smell wonderful again.
Whether you need your crawlspace insulated with batting, need your attic “topped up” to bring it up to code, or need your entire attic reinsulated after a cleanout – we can help. Ask us for information on insulation grants.
