The Mould Menace: Protecting Your Health and Business After a Flood with Kill, Prevent, Protect



Flood damage can be devastating, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. But beyond the initial disruption, a hidden danger lurks: mould. This fast-growing fungus thrives in damp environments, and its presence can pose serious health risks and financial woes for businesses.


Mould's Insidious Impact on Health:


Exposure to mould spores can trigger a variety of health problems, particularly for those with allergies, asthma, or weakened immune systems. Common symptoms include:


  • Respiratory problems: coughing, wheezing, difficulty breathing

  • Skin irritation: rashes, itching

  • Eye irritation: redness, watering

  • Headaches

  • Fatigue


Iron Angels and the Fight Against Mould


Iron Angels in Airdrie, had a serious flood, from a burst pipe from the property above causing severe damage to the unit and the business, but, more importantly, there were other dangers lurking, especially the damage to people's health.


Wendy, Iron Angels proprietor, began experiencing a series of health issues after a flood in her workshop. Constant headaches, respiratory problems, and worsening allergies plagued her. Unbeknownst to her, the culprit was a hidden mould infestation that had taken root.


Insite Specialist Services to the Rescue


Fortunately, Wendy was introduced to Gordon Bruce, founder at Insite Specialist Services. Gordon introduced Wendy to our "Kill, Prevent, Protect" system, which is a comprehensive approach to mould remediation and prevention. Insite's team identified the source of the moisture problem, removed all traces of mould using safe and effective methods, and implemented preventative measures to stop future growth.


"Our goal is to create healthy and safe environments for people to live and work in," says Gordon Bruce, founder of Insite Specialist Services.


"Mould exposure can have a devastating impact on lives, and we're committed to helping businesses like Iron Angels recover and thrive."


A Brighter Future for Iron Angels


Thanks to Gordon's intervention, Wendy's health has improved dramatically. The mould was eradicated, and her workshop is now a safe space for both her and her customers.


Iron Angels is back in business, and Wendy can breathe easy, both literally and figuratively.


Protect Yourself and Your Business:


If you've experienced a flood, be vigilant about the potential for mould growth. Look for signs of moisture damage, musty odours, and visible mould colonies.
