TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 09, 2016) - Mold.ca (www.mold.ca), a certified mold inspection and remediation company that provides mold removal and inspection services, air quality and asbestos testing, and fire and flood damage restoration in Toronto, the GTA, and Kitchener-Waterloo region, cautions that April showers can sometimes result in mold issues in May. They offer homeowners a few helpful tips and advice on what to look for to avoid a problem with mold this spring.

After a long cold winter, people in Ontario eagerly await the arrival of spring. It's a special time of the year when we say goodbye to the winter blues and hello to the warm sunshine. While the rain it brings in April may be good for the flowers in the garden, it can create potential mold or water intrusion problem in your home, according to Indira Sukhdeo of Mold.ca. "Spring is the time to pay particular attention to excess moisture and musty odours. Here are five tips that we hope will help you 'spring' into action and address any potential mold problems before they get out of hand," says Sukhdeo.

1. Pay close attention to any leaks coming from your roof or water in your basement. If you find a leak, it's best to call the experts to locate and deal with the source of the problem.

2. Are your eaves and downspouts working correctly? When you get a chance, have them cleaned and make sure the path is free and clear for the water to drain away from your home.

3. Do some spring cleaning and get rid of all those boxes stored in your basement. Clutter in your basement could be hiding issues you may not have noticed. An unexpected leak or flood could ruin your belongings.

4. Keep an eye on any water or debris pooling near the foundation of your home. Water should run away from your home and not towards it.

5. With spring comes rising humidity, a friend of mold. The best time to notice any musty odours in your home is within the first few moments of stepping in the door. Be alert to musty smells as you enter your home. After a few minutes, most people become accustomed to various odours, so it's best to follow your nose right away and track down the source.
