Les moisissures : un danger pour votre grenier


There are many risks associated with mould in your home. They usually occur as a result of heavy rainfall or gusts. This temperature variation leads to a degradation of the most sensitive parts that allow the parasites to settle. For example, mould on the roof of your home is manifested by stains and condensation of water in the attic. In addition to being unsightly, this greatly reduces the waterproofing of your cover.


On the other hand, mould on the attic can quench the worm and therefore affect insulation. Thus, the roof is weakened, and you also notice leaks in places that affect the integrity of your attic. Also, with the appearance of these organisms, the interior comfort is destabilized with stains, smells and a gondola of walls.

At this stage, your health is threatened with spores that cause allergies and sometimes seizures. In addition, the disorders caused can be much more serious. These can include confusion, memory problems and other chronic diseases.

By staying at home, you’ve always thought you’re safe from pollution. But, that’s completely wrong! Contrary to popular belief, indoor air contains countless contaminants. Be aware that most of the harmful elements that seep into the indoor air are odourless and undetectable to the naked eye, hence the need for an air quality analysis.

Indoor air quality analysis is also necessary to improve your daily well-being. This step allows you to reduce the risk of the onset of pathologies such as allergic rhinitis, eye irritation, respiratory problems, skin rash… It can also prevent chronic diseases that affect young children. You should know that 50 of childhood asthmas are caused by stale inner air, especially the presence of allergenic particles in the air.

By conducting an analysis of indoor air quality, know that you increase the value of your property. By providing healthy housing, you have a “concrete argument” for offering a higher rent. During a real estate sale, the presentation of an air test can also convince future buyers to close the transaction.


How do I get rid of mold?

For effective decontamination of a construction, it is important to use a good method. To do this, it is often best to look at the causes of mould. Above all, this approach makes it possible to find the most appropriate approach.

Roof-to-roof decontamination

Moulds between roofs are mostly due to the plants, organic matter and moisture to which the roof is exposed. Their presence can induce alteration of the roof-to-door vermiculite which reduces waterproofing and insulation. To get rid of it, you essentially have to spray the entire surface of the roof with bleach or a disinfectant substance. Then it is necessary to let stand for a few minutes before rinsing with plentyof water.

To make sure to remove all the debris,it is very useful to use a garden hose. In addition, to limit the appearance of new molds between roofs, a long-term protective cream will be of real use. However, instead of performing these tasks yourself, it is beneficial to entrust them to a professional.

Attic decontamination

As for the moulds in your attic,the causes of their presence are diverse. Among other things, attic moulds are born from leaks from the roof or windows. They may also be due to insufficient ventilation in rooms such as the bathroom or kitchen. On the other hand, a degradation of attic vermiculite followed by a decrease in insulation may be the cause. To decontaminate your attic, you should follow a rigorous process. Clean it with a disinfectant solution to eliminate all stains.

For greater efficiency, it is also essential to find long-term solutions against these moulds. To do this, correcting leaks and improving insulation are crucial actions to be taken. Also, it’s very useful to improve the attic ventilationsystem. At the end, consider spraying all areas with a mold inhibitor solution.

Basement decontamination

The basement of your home or building is a place much more exposed to mold. Condensation of air and moisture are factors that greatly promote the presence of these harmful plants. To decontaminate a basement, it is necessary to remove mouldy objects and disinfect them. Then, all the mould can be cleaned underground and thoroughly dried. This strategy is effective in addressing the aeration problem. Moreover, in order to have great flexibility and to find tailored services, the professional in this field gives more certainty.

There are several factors that can lead to indoor air pollution. Humidity, cigarette smoke, gas leakage are among the most well-known causes. But there are other more dangerous substances that may be present in the air.


Detect asbestos

If you rent an old house, vermiculite may have been used in insulation work. This material, which has undeniable insulating powers, is nevertheless harmful to health. Recent studies have shown that it contains asbestos, an element that is classified as carcinogenic. By conducting an air test, you can avoid the health risks caused by asbestos in vermiculite.


Identifying the presence of biological pollutants

You should know that a wide variety of biological materials can pollute indoor air. Apart from mold, which is often apparent, an air test can detect the infestation of mites, cockroaches or rodents in your home. In addition to causing material damage, urine and feces are among the allergens. In other words, they are the source of respiratory discomfort.


Diagnosing the infiltration of harmful gases

Air quality analysis can detect radon that is suspended in the air. Although this gas is odourless, it is extremely dangerous to health. Studies have found that radon exposure is one of the leading causes of lung cancer. This substance is usually present in the basement, but can seep into the entire dwelling.

Other particles such as carbon monoxide or nitrogen dioxide can also pollute indoor air. In general, these gases are produced by different heaters such as radiators, chimneys or heated stoves.

It is important to note that several chemical pollutants such as bisphenols, benzene or formaldehyde are also present in paints, perfumes, floor coverings or glues…

The air test is a step that should not be overlooked even if there are no apparent problems in your home. To ensure the air quality in the living rooms, you can contact a professional at any time to do the tests and decontaminate the premises if needed.
