Exposure to molds can exacerbate a host of health issues including Asthma, respiratory ailments and inflammation in the lungs. Immune systems can also be compromised from mold exposure for some people and pets.
The Ontario Health and Safety Act (OHSA) requires that all Employers take reasonable precautions to ensure the health and safety of all workers and inhabitants. It is important that any commercial building is free from mold contamination for the health and safety of the people working in the building as well as all of those living in the building.
The Landlord and Tenant Board requires that a Landlord keep the rental property safe for the tenants and up to property standards. While some minor levels of mold situations are within the control of the tenant to prevent and fix, other more serious levels of mold such as mold in an attic, walls or ceilings for instance, are the liability of the Landlord and must be remediated.
We recommend that all clients contact MoldCare or another accredited mold inspection company to come in and inspect the contamination with specialized equipment to accurately assess the seriousness and potential for mold. It is not uncommon for there to be a much higher level of mold than what is actually visible. Mold contamination in a commercial or apartment building can affect leases, create lawsuits and result in damage to the building and a loss of income from the investment.
