Mould might not seem very dangerous on the surface, but knowing that you could be breathing in the same dirty spores you see on your floor or wall should be enough of a deterrent to not try to remove it on your own. This is especially true for people who have asthma and other breathing conditions, as mould can cause serious damage and even be fatal in some cases. That is why you should always use a professional mould removal team who have all the right safety equipment and training to remove your mould entirely.

How Do I Know If I Have a Mould Problem?

First things first: you need to determine whether you actually have a mould problem. The easiest way to do this is to examine the sides of your walls and house carefully, particularly in troublesome areas like your bathrooms. If you notice wet stains on your roof or a lot of moisture gathering around walls, then you have the perfect conditions for mould to grow in. If you see black stains growing in what looks like circular patterns, then that is mould, and you need to contact a removal company as soon as possible. If you aren't sure, ask if they provide any testing services to be 100 percent confident before they start ripping your mould out.

What Is the Mould Removal Process?

The mould removal process is very simple: stop, remove, repair. First they will try and stop whatever leak is occurring to ensure that when they fix your mould, it doesn't just immediately grow back. Once these leaks are plugged, they will remove your mould-affected areas. This could be much larger than it looks on the surface, and it might take enough time that you need to relocate for a few days. Finally, they will replace the affected areas with new walls or flooring, with your new and improved defences against moisture.

How Do I Find a Mould Removal Company?

Many mould removal specialists also do other cleaning and construction work, so if you can't find one that specifies itself as only mould removal, do not worry. It is quite a specific job, so in the larger cities, you will find specialists who brand themselves as mould removalists, but this might not be viable in the country and more suburban areas. Otherwise, just make sure that mould removal is listed as one of their services, and call them to get a quote before work begins.

For more information on mould removal services, contact a local cleaner.
