Professional Mould Removal and Remediation Service on the Sunshine Coast

No one likes to see mould growing in their home. Not only is it unsightly and makes your home look dirty but it also creates a serious health risk for you and your family. Plus cleaning and removing mould properly is no easy process… as you’re about to learn.

There are many different types of mould – among the most familiar are the black moulds that creep across ceilings and bathroom walls and the grey-green powdery moulds that grow on shoes and leather goods that have been left unused in a wardrobe too long. While mould plays an important role in nature it poses a nasty threat to your home due to the dangerous spores they release into the air as part of their reproductive process.

Mould grows when their spores land on a surface that provides the right conditions for growth. Mould thrives in dampness and cannot grow without moisture. So the most effective defence against mould is a reduction in the moisture levels in your house by reducing the level of relative humidity in your home.

Why Do You Need Mould Removal?

Moulds are associated with a number of health issues including allergies, asthma and irritation of eyes, nose and throat. Mould in your home can also cause sinus and other respiratory problems. And now with more than 30% of buildings affected by mould it is being recognized as a serious health risk.

Mould exposure can lead to serious illnesses including internal bleeding, pneumonia-like illnesses and brain damage. Toxigenic moulds attack your immune system leaving your body vulnerable to diseases related to the central nervous system and/or cardiopulmonary systems.

Here’s What The Experts Say

Environmental scientist and presenter of the TV show Is Your House Killing You? - Dr Peter Dingle – reports that mould is now being referred to as the "asbestos of the new generation".

He says "The effects of moulds and dampness on the respiratory health of children are comparable to the effect of passive smoking and include other effects such as asthma and chronic bronchitis. Mould exposure is associated with catching more colds, more infections in the lower respiratory system and irritation of skin, eyes, fever and headache. In severe cases, it can cause death."

Mould Can Cause Permanent Damage

Besides their negative influence on health, mould can also cause damage to property and possessions. A mould infestation may permanently mark or discolour an item or surface if left untreated. Sometimes to the extent that certain building materials may need to be replaced.

That’s why it’s critical to have your mould problem analysed as early as possible. We provide professional mould removal and remediation services for home owners, landlords, lettings agencies, local authorities, schools and more on the Sunshine Coast.

Do I Need Mould Removal?

Knowing when you need professional help for mould removal may be difficult. However the   following signs below indicate you have a problem that needs to be investigated immediately:

  • Any brown, green, black, tallow or gray colour covering anywhere in your house
  • You notice mould growing on organic materials like gyprock, paint, wood, paper, wallpaper, cardboard, ceiling tiles, insulation, etc
  • Even a musty odour without any visible signs can indicate mould

Some of the health symptoms that indicate mould problems include:

  • Chronic cough, sore throat, itchy eyes
  • Headache, blurred vision, hearing loss
  • Flu symptoms, diarrhoea, hot and cold spells
  • Fatigue, general malaise, psychological depression
  • Dermatitis, crawling skin
  • Decreased attention, disorientation, poor reflexes, dizziness

If you face any of these symptoms we recommend you call a professional and quality mould removal and remediation service like ourselves to assess the situation and give you the right advice for treating the problem. However it’s obviously best to eliminate any mould problems as soon as you notice them to avoid the risk of you and your family getting sick.

How Do You Avoid Spread Of Mould?

People often think they can tackle mould problems on their own. However this usually has the opposite effect and spreads the mould problem with dangerous side effects. Therefore it is always recommended to seek professional help and call for mould removal services.

In addition make sure you NEVER:

  • Disturb mould colonies after you have located them as air motion can send millions of viable spore into the air and cross-contaminate the rest of the room or structure 
  • Tear out mouldy building materials without proper hazard inspection
  • Try to kill mould with bleach or fungicides as it does not remove the toxins from the air. A dead spore will continue to give off toxins until it is removed
  • Seal or paint areas affected by mould. Sealing and painting over mould does not kill the mould or remove the toxins. It is only an aesthetic fix while poor health symptoms will continue

Don’t Ignore Mould!

Remember mould will NEVER go away on its own. Mould is a living organism and will only grow and spread the longer you leave it untreated. You may risk further illness, additional structural damage and expensive lawsuits if you have tenants who are exposed to mould. Therefore you need professional mould removal and remediation services to get rid of your mould forever.
