Mould Remediation

Mould is caused by a moisture issue within the area where the mould is growing. The first step to mould remediation is to have a mould survey carried out by a trained remediation specialist who will advise you whether it is safe to reside in the property and forward you a detailed plan of what is required to eradicate the problem.

Mould Remediation

We would firstly recommend a drying program which will instantly prevent further mould growth in the property. Moisture is needed to assist the spores geminating and creating mould and can start to germinate within 48 hours of any water damage incident or rise in humidity so specialist drying equipment will reduce the humidity and prevent further mould growth. Mould spores are present in properties at all-time but can’t be seen by the naked eye as they are so small. They move through the air and settle on surfaces which are removed by general cleaning. However when a mould spore lands on a damp surface they begin to grow and multiply causing a mould issue to the property.

Causes of Mould

  • Water ingress (flooding)
  • Drying clothes in a property without ventilation
  • Not ventilating when using the bath/shower and cooking
  • Damp
  • Tumble dryers not ventilated
  • Furniture to close to external walls
  • Trickle vents in windows sealed up or closed

Harmful effects of mould

People who have a strong and healthy body are not always prone to the harmful effects of mould however some people can become seriously ill if living in properties affected by mould so we would always advise to take it very seriously. Persons most susceptible to suffer from the harmful effects of moulds are:

  • Babies and children who have not fully developed
  • Persons with asthma or any lung conditions
  • Persons with allergies, bronchitis, pneumonia and many more
  • Elderly persons
  • Pregnant women

We would advise you always consult your doctor.

How we treat the mould

When carrying out mould remediation the work is carried out under negative air pressure with the use of HEPA filters and specialist equipment. This will prevent any particles disturbed being blown around the property causing cross contamination as they are captured in the filtration system. All technicians have been fully trained in the latest mould remediation techniques ensuring your property is completely decontaminated and made safe for all persons to move back into the property. For more information please call for free advice or to arrange a technician to visit your property
