Mould Removal Services and Mould Cleaning
Mould is caused by a moisture issue within the area where it’s growing. This could occur because of any number of things, including water ingress from flooding/leaks, poor ventilation or damp patches. The first step to mould remediation is to have a mould survey carried out by a trained remediation specialist. They 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.

Our Mould Remediation Process
After the initial mould survey is undertaken, we would firstly recommend a drying programme which instantly prevents further mould growth in the property. Moisture is needed to assist the spores in geminating and creating mould, and this can start to happen within 48 hours of any water damage incident or rise in humidity. Therefore, specialist drying equipment will reduce the humidity and prevent further mould growth.
Mould spores are present in properties at all times but can’t be seen by the naked eye as they are so small. They move through the air and settle on surfaces before they 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 in the property.
Use of HEPA filters
When carrying out mould remediation, the work is carried out under negative air pressure with the use of HEPA filters and specialist equipment. This approach prevents any particles being blown around the property, causing cross contamination as they are captured in the filtration system.
All our technicians have been fully trained in the latest mould remediation techniques. This means we can ensure your property is completely decontaminated and made safe for all persons to move back in. For more information please call for free advice or to arrange a technician to visit your property.
Mould Remediation Service Breakdown
Where there’s mould there’s moisture, so it’s imperative that the affected area/s are dry to prevent the further spread of mould. We have invested heavily in the latest drying technology, so you can rest assured your property will be dried thoroughly throughout.
Mould cleaning and decontamination
Our mould remediation work includes an initial mould survey to determine not only the scale of the problem, but also whether it’s safe for people to stay in the property as it currently stands. Once this has been undertaken, we begin thorough decontamination and cleaning of the property to remove mould using the latest equipment.
Cross contamination prevention
Thanks to our use of HEPA filters and specialist equipment, we prevent the cross contamination of disturbed airborne mould spores spreading throughout the property. This is because the mould remediation work is solely carried out under negative air pressure.
Odour removal (if required)
If the mould was caused by severe water ingress from flooding, it’s likely that you have unpleasant damp odours to contend with. Fortunately, we can rectify this using a variety of fogging and sealing odour removal solutions that solve the problem long-term.
