Environmentally Friendly Mould Treatment
At Breathe Easy Eco Solutions, our specialized mould treatment formula is uniquely brewed in-house. Not only is our formula an eco-friendly blend that’s gentle on the environment, but it kills mould, effectively stopping the spread and preventing regrowth in your home.
During our mould remediation treatment, we use a chemical-free product that kills 100% of mould, bacteria, and viruses (provided we can complete the recommended work) while using a blend of 11 essential oils and botanical enzymes that break down and dissolve the mould naturally. Unlike other treatments on the market, our in-house mould removal treatment is carcinogen-free and non-toxic and doesn’t irritate the skin. Our formula does not contain any added chemicals that can linger and potentially cause respiratory concerns for sensitive individuals.
The generic meaning of “eco-friendly” is “not causing harm to the ecosystem”. What distinguishes us from other companies is not only our commitment to the environment but also our outstanding customer service and the versatility and sustainability of our product. The base of our product is considered a hospital-grade disinfectant and has been proven to kill mould very successfully.

Steps Involved in Mould Removal
We use a 2-stage process for mould treatment:
Spraying. We pre-spray hotspots where mould is visually concentrated. This direct application of our product immediately kills the mould and helps to stop spores from being released into the air.
Fogging. We use industrial fogging machines to fill the air with a specific mixture of botanical enzymes and essential oils. While the spraying kills mould on contact, the additional fogging process allows our product to penetrate areas that might not otherwise be accessible. This kills the spores in the air and inhibits mould growth without damaging your belongings. Depending on the situation, we might also use specific types of plant enzymes to neutralize other allergens and irritants such as pet dander, bacteria and dust mite feces.
Renovations & Residential Demolition
Don’t Forget Your Ducts!
It’s important to get your ducts cleaned after mould remediation as there could be mould particles left in the ducts. Breathe Easy offers Premium Duct Cleaning services in Winnipeg and the surrounding areas.

What Are Mould Spores?
Where there is moisture, mould can grow. Mould can begin growth and reproduction in less than 48 hours where moisture is excessive and thrives both in cold temperatures and in warm environments.
Mould easily grows in dark and damp corners. Since mould is a fungus, it creates spores to reproduce. The spores are invisible to the naked eye and float through outdoor and indoor air. Mould may begin growing indoors when mould spores land on surfaces that are wet. Mould like shaded areas because ultraviolet hinders the growth of the fungus, rendering them unable to reproduce in areas often lit by the sun.
Mould is a health hazard. Spores can be inhaled by humans, even pets. When the spores get deep enough inside the lungs, the spores can cause respiratory problems. Mould spores are allergens that aggravate allergies, asthma, and other respiratory illnesses. Inhaling high concentrations of these spores can be harmful to someone, which is why mould removal is important.

The Answer is Easy: Breathe Easy!
Mould in an uninsulated garage forms as a result of moisture condensing on very cold walls during the winter. The moisture often comes from the accumulated snow and ice on your vehicle. The nearly airtight conditions in most newly-built garages ensure that this moisture is not vented, and as the air inside the garage cools, it releases its moisture onto uninsulated walls.
Our unique process will ensure that the existing problem is completely resolved and that you will never have a moisture problem in your garage again. Years of experience and research have made Breathe Easy Eco Solutions the industry leader in solving residential mould problems. When you need garage mould removal in Winnipeg, call us for help.

FAQ about Garage Mould Removal
Can mould be found in a brand new house?There are 2 main reasons why you found mould behind the insulation in a new house and both are related to the Building Code. First, the Code requires that the basement be insulated prior to the new homeowner taking possession of the house. Oftentimes this means that the concrete foundation may be dry, but it is not cured and still may contain significant moisture that will evaporate into the open space between the foundation walls and the insulation. The insulation and vapour barrier makes it difficult for this moisture to disperse into the basement air, so there it sits. Any mould spores present find it much to their liking, and growth occurs. The second issue is that it is quite difficult to seal the air-vapour barrier in the floor joist header area. The Code does not specify how this should be done, so builders sometimes staple or do not even seal the vapour barrier at all. This leaves gaps in the vapour barrier where warm moist air from the basement can make its way through to the cold foundation walls and condense. Again, this provides a very suitable environment for mould growth. Most of the time, The Code is your friend, but not in this case, as you have discovered. The solution to your issue is to remove the vapour barrier and the existing insulation. This should be done by professionals if there is more than just a little mould. The basement should be sprayed with an eco-friendly anti-mould agent and then completely dried out using a good dehumidifier. Then new, mould-resistant insulation must be installed. Please do not use the old insulation as it has been corrupted with mould spores. Finally, an intact and properly sealed vapour barrier is a must to avoid future problems.
How to choose the right mould remediation company?Thank you for your question. Most so-called “mould remediation” companies do not specialize in mould. If you look at their websites, you can see they do all sorts of remediation and restorations. From smoke and fire to floods and leaky basements, they do it all. They do air quality, they build rec rooms, they restore paintings. One local fellow owns a home inspection service. He inspects homes for leaky windows, he inspects fireplaces, he investigates roofs and eavestroughs, and everything else… and guess what? He even detects mould as part of his overall “home inspection.” He also owns a number of individual businesses. He repairs windows. He services fireplaces. He replaces roofs and eavestroughs. Oh, and he remediates mould! Each of his businesses has its own name and website. What an expert he must be! Find a company that specializes in mould remediation. They should detect, kill and remove mould period, and they should have been in business for at least 5 years. Those are the true mould experts. The certification process is wide open and generally meaningless in Canada, so make sure they are registered with the Better Business Bureau. Never hire a guy with a hand-lettered sign and no business cards, and avoid any company who tells you that you need their service beyond remediating mould.
