Winterizing Tips: Reduce Your Exposure To Mould

We’ve been lucky enough to avoid the worst of winter weather so far here in Toronto and the GTA, but still, we all know there’s no escaping the inevitable. Winter will come, and with it, cold, damp weather that can bring on a slew of problems, including mould.

Here are some tips on what to incorporate into your home winterizing routine to avoid mould growth and the health problems it can cause.

Your Furnace
When you first start up the furnace after a nice long summer, it’s not unusual to notice a bit of a musty smell. If it lasts less than a day, it’s typically just the dust that has accumulated through the warmer season. It burns off pretty quickly, and changing the air filters will help.

  • If the must odour persists, then it may be mould. Sometimes, air conditioning systems can cause condensation to build up in the air ducts. Mould may start to grow, and then disperse throughout your home. A duct cleaning may be in order, along with mould removal procedures.

Avoid Leaks
Regularly inspecting your home and then repairing any leaks and deficiencies promptly will save you a lot of time and money getting rid of mould and its after effects later on.

  • Make sure your roof is sound – look for stained, curling, worn or missing shingles.
  • Check the eavestroughing – make sure gutters are clear and any downspouts flow away from the house.
  • Inspect any siding or other outside wall covering to ensure integrity – look for cracks or gaps in the siding material, brick or mortar.
  • Inspect windows for leaks, and fill in any gaps with VOC-free sealant.

Other Considerations:

  • Make sure your dryer is venting outside, and that the vent is kept clear;
  • Make sure attics and basements are free of leaks.

Avoiding moisture build-up is the key to avoiding mould growth.

Avoiding Asbestos Exposure in Extreme Weather

From earthquakes to hurricanes, the state of the globe has been in the news all year long. The most violent weather events may take place far from the GTA, but even so, all year, the weather story has been one of sudden temperature changes, heavy rainstorms, high winds and even flooding. Many natural events have the potential to cause damage to your home that can result in asbestos exposure.

  • Rain leakage around windows and doors;
  • Flooding, roof leaking;
  • Wind damage, wear and tear around windows and doors;
  • And more.

The Danger: Asbestos Exposure
Asbestos – or asbestos containing materials (ACM) – may be present in your home from floor to ceiling tiles, window and door sealant, pipe chasing, and much more. While ACM is considered safe while it is intact, flooding and other damage can wear away the other materials, leaving only asbestos fibres to crumble and become friable (or inhalable).

If you have unexpected damage to your home or property, built before the mid-1980s, then you should proceed with caution. Stay as far away as possible from any potentially ACM loaded debris, and call us for help as soon as you can.

  • It is difficult to determine the asbestos content of any material just by looking at it – don’t try to eyeball it;
  • Try NOT to disturb any debris;
  • Try to contain the area until you can get professional help – close up the room and try to block any airways; a plastic tarp may help (but don’t get too close to the debris);
  • If the debris is dry, you can try to keep it wet to avoid creating dust;
  • If you have been in the same room before containing the debris, take off all clothing at the door and seal it in a plastic bag until you can launder it.

The Mould That Closed A Museum

Mould is a serious threat to human and animal health, and it can also cause extensive and costly damage to buildings. In Ottawa, the discovery of mould had huge consequences for a national institution.

The Canada Science and Technology Museum is reopening on November 17, 2017 to much fanfare. The museum has been closed since 2014 after the discovery of toxic mould triggered a huge remediation and restoration project.

The Project
The mould removal project came to be part of an $80.5 million renovation and upgrade investment. The project involved several components,

  • Mould removal;
  • Replacement of the roof;
  • Other physical upgrades.

The second point is particularly important. If you’re not going to fix the problem and ensure it won’t repeat, then you’re going to end up in a never ending cycle of mould infestation.

  • Inspection, maintenance, and permanent repairs to any issues are your keys to avoiding mould in the first place.

It really can’t be overemphasized. You don’t save yourself money by delaying needed repairs – you’re costing yourself more later on when it comes to not only the mould removal process, but replacing whatever has been damaged by it.

After clearing the air of toxic mould spores, the 7,400-square-metre (80,000-square-foot) Museum will feature a new interactive exhibit on the five senses, called “Medical Sensations”. The show is based on the plans that were already on the books in 2014 when mould put the brakes on it.

A Leaky Roof Makes Headlines
When the mould was first discovered, it made for dramatic national headlines as the building was abruptly evacuated. It’s apparent that the Museum’s staff took the threat of mould exposure seriously. One spokes person noted that overall mould exposure is on the rise in what they called an “age of mould.” Identifying the mould isn’t really necessary. As one expert put it bluntly, “No mould that grows on a building material is good for you.”

The cause of the Museum’s woes were one that many home and property owners will empathize with – a leaky roof. Water can wander in any direction in a home, and end up in the attic, behind walls and between floors where you don’t see it.

  • You may notice a persistent musty odour that may seem to come from a specific location, or may seem more general in terms of dispersion;
  • Once it has gotten into your HVAC system, the mould spores can show up anywhere in your home;
  • You may notice physical symptoms such as persistent itchy eyes, nose, and throat, coughing or other respiratory issues.

Asbestos Regulations and You

There are more and more stories in the news about shady asbestos removal companies and the messes they leave behind. It’s not just in the GTA, but all over the continent. As asbestos regulations tighten, it seems like the unscrupulous characters are looking to wiggle out of taking the right precautions.

At GreenStream Environmental Services, we know how important it is to take the right precautions. It protects not just our employees, but our clients, and even their neighbours.

But, as a home or property owner, do you know the law? What happens if you have asbestos removal work done in a property you occupy as a tenant?

The Regulations

  • The Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA), Regulation 278/05 covers asbestos regulation on construction projects and in building and repair operations.
  • The Regulation applies to every project, the owner of the building, and/or his agent, including contractors or subcontractors hired to do work on the premises.
  • Important: the term “owner” in the Act does include tenants. Under some circumstances, the tenant of a building may be considered to be either the owner or occupier. If, as a tenant, you have been notified that there is asbestos or ACM (asbestos containing materials) in the premises that you occupy, then it becomes your responsibility to notify anyone working on your premises of the hazard.

Your responsibilities include:

  • Taking “every precaution reasonable in the circumstances for the protection of a worker.”
  • Preparing a list of any hazardous substances, including asbestos, and their location, and make it available to the contractor or other person doing the work for hire.

This includes repairs, renovations, maintenance, demolotion, or other similar work.

  • Owners of buildings with known asbestos or ACM are required to have an asbestos management program in place, even if there is no work being done.

Asbestos in the Basement: Pipe Insulation

Asbestos was once thought of as a “miracle” construction material. It’s heat and fire resistant, and nearly indestructible, so it’s not hard to see where that idea came from. It was only decades later that people discovered the dark side to this naturally occurring mineral – mesothelioma and other lung diseases. Asbestos’ indestructible nature become lethal once it has entered your lungs.

Asbestos All Over
If your home was built before the mid-1980s, there’s a good chance it contains asbestos or ACM (asbestos containing materials) which may be found literally from floor to ceiling.

You may be aware of issues like vermiculite insulation, typically used in the attic, and which may be contaminated with asbestos. There are also asbestos/vinyl floor tiles, and even asbestos containing ceiling tiles. But, did you know you’ll need to check the basement too?

  • In particular, if you have an older radiator system or boiler, the pipes were often wrapped in asbestos insulation.
  • Even if the heating system has been upgraded, the old pipes are often left in place.
  • Now, the material is considered safe as long as it is intact. However, the lifespan of most insulating materials is a couple of decades. That means, as it deteriorates, more and more of the asbestos may be exposed and posing a potential danger.

Asbestos insulation was used on piping in old industrial buildings as well as in homes. Peterborough, to the east of the GTA, is home to a now controversial General Electric plant where workers were exposed to a variety of hazards. Asbestos wrapped piping is yet another of the issues that is now being reconsidered as a hazard as the WSIB looks into old claims it once denied.

Mould Spores

Just after the news of Hurricane Harvey came the aftermath – an almost immediate infestation of mould throughout Houston and other flooded areas of Texas. It’s well known that mould can begin to grow within a mere 24 hours if the conditions are right. But how? And what, if anything, can you do to prevent it?

The Mould Mechanism
How can mould appear almost instantly after a deluge? It helps to understand how mould works. Mould spores are a bit like pollen. They are tiny – invisible to the naked eye – very light and float on the air, and they can also live quite a long time. They thrive outdoors, and while they aren’t active in the winter when it’s below zero, they don’t die from the cold. They simply go into a dormant mode, waiting to be revived after the spring thaw.

All the spores need is oxygen, standing moisture, and food, which can consist of pretty much anything organic, like piles of leaves or wood outdoors, cloth or paper indoors. They love cellulose, a plant-based fiber that is used in textiles and carpets. Some things to remember.

  • Outdoors, mould levels peak during late summer and early fall because of the abundant vegetation they can feed from.
  • Leaving your shoes and outdoor clothing at the door and avoid bringing them into your home.
  • Use a dehumidifier to control excess moisture and high humidity during the summer.
  • Ensure adequate ventilation throughout your home, including an exhaust fan in your bathroom.
  • Use a vacuum with a HEPA filter to help remove mould spores.
  • Repair any leaks in plumbing, roof, windows or other source of water as soon as possible.

It’s Important
You can’t tolerate even a small growth of mould in your home. First, a small growth can soon grow much bigger. Second, even a small patch can produce more mould spores that become airborne. Once they’re in your home, they can enter your HVAC systems and disperse throughout your living space.

Mould poses a very real threat to human health. It can cause a variety of symptoms.

  • Persistent coughing and dry throat;
  • Stuffy nose;
  • Irritation of the eyes;
  • Respiratory issues, including worsening allergies;
  • And more.

Flooding – The Danger From Mould And Asbestos

Flooding is dominating the headlines lately, from the catastrophic floods on the Texas coast to Western Ontario and other places across the globe. The devastation of a flood itself is bad enough, but once people return to their homes and businesses to try and clean up and begin their lives again, there are other threats to be faced, including asbestos and mould.

Asbestos
If your home was built before the mid-1980s, there is a good chance that it contains asbestos in one form or another. That most often includes asbestos mixed with other materials, and it can show up virtually anywhere in your home, including,

  • Floor tiles;
  • Ceiling tiles (often called “acoustic ceiling tiles”);
  • Wall panels;
  • Textured paints;
  • Popcorn ceilings;
  • Attic and pipe insulation;
  • Window and door caulking;
  • And more!

While asbestos containing materials or ACM are considered safe as long as they are intact, a flood can damage the materials it is mixed with, leaving the asbestos to dry into inhalable fibers.

Mould
Flood waters are often contaminated with sewer water, or other substances that it has picked up from the ground, including poisons, microbes, and chemicals. Even the cleanest water, however, can spark the growth of mould within a mere 48 hours.

Any area that remains wet or moist for 48 hours or more can be prime ground for mould infestation – and mould does love to eat cellulose based materials such as carpeting and even drywall.

  • Drying out the area thoroughly is the first priority – fans and general ventilation are essential in that regard.
  • Removing any items that are wet and not likely to be remediated, which probably includes carpeting and other textiles.

Those measures are a good rule of thumb to begin with, but depending on how quickly you can get back into the area to assess damage and begin the clean-up process, it may not be enough.

Once mould has set in, simple cleaning alone won’t get rid of it. You need help.

Toronto Case Highlights Asbestos Exposure In Schools

A Toronto area woman recently made headlines when she withdrew her son from a daycare operated by the TDSB out of fear of asbestos exposure.

The daycare was operating in the basement of a high school, which was to undergo asbestos abatement procedures. School officials assured the parent there were proper procedures in place, including,

  • Work by a professional contractor with standard processes for removal and containment;
  • Air quality testing;
  • Relocating the daycare within the building, farther away from the asbestos removal work.

When the Ministry of Education got involved, it resulted in a meeting between officials and parents.

It seems like communication – or the lack of it – was one of the issues at hand, and as an asbestos removal company, we have to agree that it’s one of the important components of a successful process from start to finish. It’s crucial in a case where people are living or working in a building when asbestos work is going on.

Asbestos Exposure
No amount of asbestos exposure is considered safe. It becomes particularly important when it comes to children, because there are a number of studies that show the risk of developing mesothelioma and other lung diseases is increased the younger the exposure occurs.

Asbestos, or more likely, asbestos containing materials such as floor or ceiling tiles, vermiculite insulation, or pipe insulation, is considered safe as long as the material is intact. But, as in this case, any activity such as,

  • Renovations;
  • Installation of alarm or home theatre systems;
  • Floor or fire;
  • Or anything that damages the integrity of walls or other construction materials;

can cause asbestos laden dust to be created. Once airborne, it can be inhaled into the lungs – and it can spread throughout your home via the HVAC system.

Asbestos Removal Company Ordered To Stop Operations after $1 Million in Penalties

When it comes to asbestos removal violations, how many is too much? WorkSafeBC has just answered that questions when it comes to a repeat offender operating in Burnaby, British Columbia.

Repeated Violations
BCS Contracting Ltd. is listed as an asbestos abatement company. They’re based in Surrey, but work largely in Burnaby. Since 2011, they’ve racked up a whopping $1,118,000 in penalties (a total of 16) for improper asbestos removal procedures, along with five stop-work orders. It has been issued five fines since 2013 alone.

The most recent penalty was issued in March 2017, when the company was fined $628,034.57 related to work at two houses. Violations include:

Earlier this year, the court issued an order that the company stop any and all work that could possibly involve asbestos or ACM, until the company met a list of conditions. These included:

  • Informing workers about the risks and training them in safe asbestos handling practices;
  • Providing adequate supervision of workers handling asbestos;
  • Providing a written plan that details the steps the company will take to bring its practices into line with regulations.

Many advocates say the case is an example of why licensing should be mandatory for asbestos removal contractors and others who handle hazardous materials.

Safety And Asbestos
We’re just as frustrated with companies who violate the law – and good sense – as anyone else. When asbestos removal companies try to cut corners with inadequately trained and prepared workers, they endanger not only their employees, but the building owners, and anyone in the vicinity. Improperly contained asbestos or ACM can spread throughout a home and even a neighbourhood on the wind.

New Workplace Asbestos Guidelines

The Canadian government, gearing up for its planned asbestos ban by 2018, enforced some changes to the Canadian Labour Code. Specifically, it involved the occupational health and safety regulations governing the handling of asbestos.

Changes
On July 12, 2017, new amendments were added to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, and national building codes were also amended, to prohibit the use of asbestos in any new construction or renovation projects. The feds even formalized their support for listing chrysotile asbestos — which previous Canadian governments long championed — on the Rotterdam Convention as a hazardous material.

That’s quite a big step forward, and one that was a long time in coming. Some of the specific changes:

  • The onus is on employers to provide adequate education, training, and a full blown asbestos exposure management program anytime employees handle the substance, or engage in some kind of activity, such as repairs, that may bring them into contact with asbestos.
  • Standards will be consistent across the provinces and territories when it comes to levels of friable or airborne asbestos fibres.
  • The goal is lower the risk of asbestos exposure on the job as close to zero as possible.

The Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, is quoted in a media release. “Every employee has the right to a safe workplace. I’m proud to be announcing these long overdue regulatory changes on asbestos, a key element of our government’s comprehensive ban on asbestos.”

Asbestos in your Home?
At one time, asbestos was considered a miracle mineral. If your home was built before the mid-1980s, you may be able to find asbestos or asbestos containing material in virtually any part of your home from ceiling to floor tiles, wall panels to pipe insulation.
