Yes. Mould represents a potentially significant health hazard for building occupants and a substantial liability for property owners. It is very dangerous to human health, particularly black mould, this type of mould could be fatal. It is often the root cause of many health issues such as allergies, asthma and other respiratory health issues.

Mould spores are always found floating in the air, both indoors and outdoor, mould growth is only possible when spores land on wet surfaces. Mould growth spreads quickly and is fast in contaminating all surfaces and materials it touches, including clothing, furniture and other valuables. That’s why a moisture/ water problem is always present when mould growth is found in any indoor environment.

Even if there is no visible mould present after removal of the mould damage materials, a mould problem could still be possible. The only way to confirm is to take air samples to see what the mould levels are in the air. Our appointed hygenist will usually carry out initial air sampling prior to remediation works and final testing to ensure your property is safe and clean of mould prior to handing over to you.

The most common causes of water damage to property are:

  • washing machine waste water hoses dislodging due to poor installation or lack of maintenance.
  • Bathtub or basin overflows simply due to forgetfulness or leak in the plumbing.
  • Leaking toilets due to water supply pipes being damaged or poorly installed and toilet cistern cracks.
  • Burst/ crack water pipes inside or outside property.
  • Water ingress after heavy rain due to box-gutter overflow or cracked roof tiles or lack of proper stormwater drainage system.

We usually use anti-microbial which is typically the most eco friendly product to clean and kill all mould on building materials or contents. All areas are also HEPA vacuumed (High-Efficiency Particular Air) before and after cleaning.

Media blasting such as Soda or Dry Ice Blasting is a process for cleaning or finishing objects by using an air-blast or centrifugal wheel that throws abrasive particles against the surface of the work pieces. For the purpose of mould remediation, sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and dry ice are the media commonly used.

Porous building materials (baseplate, joist, chipboard,etc) that have been damaged to the point that drying or cleaning will not restore them to their pre-damaged condition or have sustained loss of integrity should be removed and discarded.
