A serious mould outbreak in your home or business can be very unsightly and worse it can have a negative effect on you and your family’s health.

Our expert mould removal service targets mould spores to completely remove any trace of the mould and help reduce the chances of the mould growing back.

Not only do we remove the existing mould but we can recommend mould prevention strategies for your situation and for the future.

What Causes Mould?

Mould growing indoors is generally caused by surface moisture and/or humidity in the air. This is why bathrooms, kitchens and laundries are particularly susceptible to mould growth, that is because the steam from showers, cooking & hot water, washing machines and dryers all contribute to increasing the humidity in the air.

Additionally, often faults in plumbing and roofing can cause moisture build up and stimulate mould growth. Something such as blocked gutters can cause misdirection of water flow resulting in water ending up where it shouldn’t be and causing mould.

Ways to Reduce or Prevent Mould

The best way is with professionals such as our team. Not only do we remove the mould but we produce a strategy to prevent it growing back. Our experience will help guide us in determining the source of the problem and work on ways to eliminate the source.

Also there are some really practices you can put in place to help reduce or eliminate mould growth.

  • Have any roof leaks or plumbing leaks repaired.
  • As with the roof, make sure your gutters are clean and not leaking.
  • Ventilation goes a long way – open windows when possible and get fresh air circulating throughout your home.
  • Keep your exhaust fans running in the bathrooms a bit longer even if you have finished in there.
  • Mop or wipe up any water laying around including condensation build up.
  • Most modern air conditioning systems have de-humidification functionality that will help get clear moisture from the air.
