Solving Mould Problems: When to Call in the Experts?

The Dangers of Mould

Mould is a common issue in many homes and workplaces, but it can pose serious health risks if left untreated. Mould is a type of fungus that thrives in damp and humid environments, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and basements. Mould spores are airborne and when inhaled, can lead to respiratory problems, allergies, or even more severe health issues in some cases.

Mould can also cause damage to the structure of a building, as it feeds on organic materials such as wood, drywall, and fabric. This can weaken the integrity of the building and lead to costly repairs. Not to mention that mould is unsightly and can have an unpleasant smell, so it’s best to address it as soon as it is detected.

Signs of a Mould Problem

There are several common signs that may indicate a mould problem in your home or workplace. 

  • Visible mould growth on walls, ceilings, or other surfaces
  • A musty odour
  • Water stains or discolouration on walls or ceilings
  • An increase in respiratory symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, or congestion. 

If you notice any of these signs of mould, it is important to call a professional mould removal company to address the issue before it worsens.

When to Call in the Experts

While DIY mould removal methods can be effective for small, isolated mould problems, there are some cases where it is best to call in the experts. This includes situations where the mould growth covers a large area, is growing on porous materials such as gyprock, plaster or carpet, or is causing severe health symptoms in occupants of the building. 

In these cases, professional mould removal services can safely and effectively eliminate the mould problem, restoring a healthy and safe environment for all.
