Fast And Effective Mould Removal In Perth

Where there is moisture, mould is sure to grow. Mould removal in Perth is usually an easy DIY job, with homeowners and office cleaners fixing the problem using soap, bleach, a brush, and some elbow grease. However, the greenish-black-brown stain that is commonly found lurking in corners can prove to be quite resilient. Are you doing enough? There is more to mould removal than meets the eye.

Is Your House Conducive to Mould Growth?

Mould is a common type of fungi that is found nearly everywhere. It belongs to the same family as yeast and mushroom. As long as conditions are favourable, mould can grow outdoors and indoors, particularly in damp or wet areas that do not have adequate ventilation. They can grow on bathroom tiles, walls, wallpapers, ceilings, insulation materials, wood, and carpets.

Anywhere there is water, mould could grow, particularly if moisture is left unattended for long periods of time. Mould can grow in your home in Perth if:

  • your home has been flooded
  • there are gaps in your home's foundation that lets water in from the ground
  • there are holes, gaps, and cracks in your home that are unprotected from the rain
  • there are leaks in the pipes

Why Mould is Dangerous

There are more than 100,000 species of moulds and some of these can be toxic and harmful to your health. Toxic moulds produce mycotoxins which could cause a number of health problems, such as:

  • allergies
  • asthma
  • respiratory problems
  • eye irritations
  • runny or congested nose

Mould is harmful to people with weak immune systems, such as those who have cancer and undergoing chemotherapy, those who are recovering from surgery, those who have chronic lung diseases, and those who have HIV/AIDS. Young children and the elderly are also vulnerable.

There are certain safety precautions that should be followed when performing mould removal in Perth. If it is removed improperly, spores could be released into the air and inhaled. If you have serious mould issues, these should only be handled by professionals.

5 Scientific Facts About Mould

Learning a few scientific facts about mould will help you understand the importance of removing this hazardous intruder.

1. Mould Exposure Can Aggravate Asthma

Moulds produce minute spores that are invisible to the naked eye, and these spores are easily inhalable. If you are susceptible to asthma, you may experience difficulty breathing more frequently with mould present on your property.

2. Mould Can Lead to Depression

According to a study by Brown University, people living in damp, mouldy homes were 44% more likely to suffer from depression. The subjects included in this study displayed different depressive symptoms. The most concerning part of the study was that the symptoms associated with depression could present themselves even in mild or moderate exposure.

3. Paint Is Not the Solution

A common misconception is that painting over mould will eliminate the problem. Mould-resistant paint only works to proactively prevent mould in the right environment, not reactively kill mould. Mould spores travel in the air and can easily recolonise once the paint dries. You might notice paint beginning to crack or develop bubbles after painting over a mouldy area. This is due to the mould/moisture growing underneath the surface. Always remove mould professionally before painting.

4. Not All Mould is Bad

  • Mould in the genus Penicillium naturally produces the antibiotic penicillin.
  • The mould Monascus purpureus is used to produce red rice yeast. It has shown to help reduce levels of bad cholesterol.
  • Some types of mould are used to cure meat or make incredible cheeses (think blue cheese, camembert and brie).

5. Bleach Doesn’t Destroy Mould

Like paint, bleach is not a permanent solution. Bleach may prevent the temporary growth of spores but can’t contain it.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about Mould Removal

The common places you should check for mould in your house are your bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, living room, basement or garage and even behind your walls and ceiling. Mould thrives on these places since they are mostly warm and wet. 

To know if there is mould in the places mentioned above, you will see visible mould spores, smell an unpleasant and pungent odour, see moisture build-up and mould growth. In addition, the mould growing inside your home can trigger allergic reactions and asthmatic reactions to your loved ones.

To prevent mould growth in your home, mop up all the water on the surfaces, remove any damp rugs and furniture inside your home and dry any damp surfaces. Keeping the surfaces inside your home dry and clean can prevent mould growth. If there is water damage inside your home, you must remove the water immediately. Ventilation to your property is required daily, open doors and windows when possible.

Sometimes, it is almost impossible to get rid of the moulds on your own, especially after water damage. It is expensive to purchase special equipment for cleaning and drying your home and your carpets. Therefore, if you cannot get rid of the moulds on your own, you need to call professional cleaners.

We service the whole of the Perth Metropolitan area, from Rockingham, Mandurah, Fremantle, to Joondalup, Alkimos, Ocean Reef to Midland and Armadale and all areas in between.

With small areas no, you will not have to move out of your house overnight. However, you will have to vacate your house during the treatment.

It takes a few hours to complete smaller treatments. However, the time it takes to complete the treatment depends on the severity of the mould and the size of your property.
