Mould or mold, no matter how you spell it – it still spells trouble.
If you see signs of or suspect mold, contact us at Home SOULutions for a professional and reliable consultation. Our highly qualified and experienced mold technician, Roy Piper, has over 20 years of renovation and restoration experience coupled with significant training in mold.

Untreated mold can lead to damaged surfaces that require remediation beyond just mold removal. If your situation has already reached this stage, it is advised that affected materials be removed and replaced. Depending on the age of your home, it may also be recommended that the materials should be tested for asbestos prior to any repairs taking place. This is also something that Home SOULutions can help with.
