So you’ve discovered you have a mould problem in your home…. And now you’re wondering… “What’s next?” You’ve called in the professionals to deal with the issue – which is a smart idea, as you don’t want it getting out of hand and affecting the health of your family and pets. Mould spores breed like rabbits and you do not want the problem to spread. So what happens when you call in a mould specialist to assess the problem?
The very first step is having a mould inspection and assessment. Our mould experts will search your property for visible growth AND invisible growth. Because not all mould can be seen! Sometimes it is hidden behind walls, tiling, inside cupboards and behind furniture. We will inspect your property for invisible mould spores and higher than usual moisture levels by using professional humidity meters. Once we have thoroughly analysed your property we will determine the correct course of action needed to be taken in order to professionally remove the mould and prevent it’s return.
The next step in our professional mould removal service is to halt any direct moisture sources that may be occurring – We usually find these when looking for the invisible mould sources – such as subfloor water seepage, leaking pipes – this could be behind your walls, within your ceiling, or under the floor, depending on your building structure. Leaking ceilings are another culprit, sometimes caused by leaking gutters, pipes etc. Each customer will need a specific course of action for their specialist mould removal based on their situation, so the specifics of each job will be arranged and finalised once the inspection analysis on your property is complete.
After we have determined the correct course of action for your professional mould remediation service we start the process with a mist spray of our non toxic, non hazardous, pet-friendly mould removal agent. This mould removal product is then spread across all surfaces of your home and extra scrubbing is undertaken on areas with visible mould growth. During the mould removal process we will use air purifiers to capture airborne mould spores, removing them from the home environment completely, rather than just moving them around from one space to another – remember mould spores spread and breed like rabbits!
Removing Excess Moisture
Sometimes moisture levels in a property can be particularly high. This could be due to flooding, or some other water damage that may have occurred. If this is the case we will place large dehumidifiers throughout the home to ensure that the building structures are properly dried out. If moisture is left in the air then mould can continue to thrive, grow again and multiply after the removal process.
The final step in our mould specialist process is to ensure that mould does not return by rectifying the root cause of the mould and putting in preventative measures within the property to stop it from recurring. Each property and each case of mould problem is completely unique. Being mould experts we can advise you on the process that needs to be undertaken in order to achieve this on a case by case basis as no too mould problems are the same. Often it may involve increasing ventilation, drainage improvements, repairs – depending on the situation.
