Mold can be very destructive and harmful to the people and properties, if not eradicated. They form a black soilless mixture which feeds on organic material and releases spores into the air once spores are inhaled. Once these spores enter the indoor environment, they produce an immediate growth of mould and mildew, which will settle in various hidden corners of the house or building, often in places where condensation is allowed to build up. It is very difficult to identify all the areas where water accumulates, dampness exists or where moisture escapes due to faulty plumbing or lack of proper ventilation.

The major symptoms associated with mould growth include black or dark green, fuzzy, textured or thickened ceilings, walls, doors, and floors; electrical wiring or cables coming loose; drywall buckling or fraying; tiles being discoloured; carpet becoming patchy or looking worn; furniture cracking and giving |upside | ; and health risks being present. All of these factors need to be addressed in order to prevent the building or property from being damaged or lost. Mold removal is carried out by professionals who are well trained in removing mould from buildings and private residences and will provide the clients with a detailed report and an estimate on how much work will be required. For mould removal to be successful, the mould must be completely removed from the area and in some cases this may require breaking through a layer of plaster along the ceiling and wall or removing the ceiling panels. In the worst cases, where there is extensive damage to the property and health risks exist, the client may choose to go to the expense of structural restoration. For the most part however, simple measures can be taken to control the spread of mould within the home or building and to protect its occupants from any health risks.

There are two primary methods for dealing with a mould issue: either removing it and replacing or controlling the moisture levels and cleaning the affected areas. If the damp is not too severe, simply using fans and drying solutions will usually alleviate the problem. If however the damp is getting worse, then it is advisable to consider professional mould busters. Damp proofing is a highly effective solution that can stop the spread of mould and to keep the dampness from getting worse.

There are many types of mould killing solutions available and the most cost effective and best suited to general mould removal issues is the ‘wet’ method. This method consists of sealing the area from all water sources including faucets, sprayers, washing machines, and other means of drying out the damp. If you have a basement, it is a good idea to seal it from the start. The downside to this type of sealing is that it is only effective if the area you are sealing off from has no other means of obtaining moisture. If the dampness is coming from other outlets in your home, such as plumbing pipes, it is essential to seal off those outlets as well.

Some damp proofing sprays and solutions contain chemicals that help stop the mould growth from spreading from one spot to another. It is essential to ensure that the chemical does not damage other parts of your home as well as the area being treated. Other methods for controlling mould include using non-toxic solutions that act as an anti-fungal and can be sprayed around the affected area.
