Steri Mobile has been providing residential mold removal services for real estate brokers since 2011.
When you’re in residential real estate, you know the market in Montreal or Eastern Ontario has a lot of opportunities. But there’s also a lot of competition. People are expecting high value for the sizable investment in a home, and any concerns or added expenses—especially if they are health-related—will drive buyers away. Buyers fear that home mold removal can be expensive, and if they see mold in one part of the home, there’s a concern it may be widespread. That is why removing mold before putting a house on the market is essential. As a real estate broker, you can advise your clients on how this treatment can help sell their home.
Know Where to Look for Mold
We’ll explain where you should be looking if you want to conduct a mold inspection, and what you can do to ensure you get affordable residential mold removal service.
Mold requires a damp, dark environment to flourish, which is why it’s not often seen in the main areas of the home. It would be best if you were concentrating your mold inspection efforts in the following areas:
Because people rarely go into attics—or roof crawlspaces—there are plenty of opportunities for mold to take hold here. Improper ventilation or an unrepaired leak can cause the moisture that mold needs to infest this space.
Basements are common areas for mold infestation because they are dark but can also be very damp, depending on the depth of the basement and leaks. If the foundation is not properly waterproofed, moisture seeps into the basement creating the ideal environment for mold to form.
Few places in a house see as much daily moisture as a bathroom does. Mold infestation in a bathroom is usually not a question of if but when, and it typically occurs near the sink, bathtub, or shower areas.
Moisture can also gather in kitchens, though not all types of mold require wetness. Leaky pipes or poorly maintained trash cans can create perfect areas for mold to grow.
Why We Are a Great Mold Removal Partner for Real Estate Brokers
Some home buyers may negotiate for home mold removal to occur before they move in. Sometimes, brokers see the problem ahead of time and may address the issue themselves. No matter what your home-selling situation, Steri Mobile can help.
One of the challenges we sometimes face when selling a home is mold and the removal of it in attics, basements etc. Before finding Steri-Mobile I dealt with other companies who were outrageously priced (playing on the mold fear factor) and they never did the job right (sanding the beams does not work!). Steri Mobile has a completely different method for mold removal and they are very reasonably priced, they do not take advantage of the scariness of the situation. Always extremely pleasant and accommodating, my clients have loved them, and best of all, the mold has never come back!

We have experience working with real estate brokers and know that both cost and results matter.
Effective Home Mold Removal
We don’t use the dry ice method, which is inefficient, nor do we use the fog and encapsulate method that doesn’t penetrate deeply into materials like wood. Our home mold removal process uses negative air pressure to prevent spreading, a fogging process that goes down to the roots, a spraying process for stains, borate silicate inhibitor to prevent regrowth, and ozone shock for the air to kill airborne spores. It’s a much more cost-effective technique with permanent results.
We Work with You
We understand the needs of homeowners, but we also know what kinds of unique challenges real estate brokers face when trying to maximize the profit on a property. That’s why we always provide a consultation and free estimate, working to identify the causes so that we can tailor an effective mold removal treatment.
When required, we can recommend specific contractors – such as roofers – to address the causes of an issue after removal to prevent a relapse. You get guaranteed work once the job is done.
