Concern about indoor exposure to mould has been increasing as the public become aware that exposure to mould can cause a variety of health effects and symptoms including allergic reactions.
Mould is one of the major factors in the increase of asthma and other respiratory diseases in recent years and there is a renewed concentration by landlords to ensure that their tenants are not affected by these poor living conditions. Landlords and homeowners often underestimate the severity of mould and the degree of difficulty in diagnosing the causes of this extremely unhealthy condition.
The causes of the mould infestation need to be identified and corrected or the mould will return very quickly. Care also needs to be taken when removing mould from a property.
Simply cleaning with bleach and water will not kill all the mould, and will trigger the release of its spores, agitating the problem and promoting re-occurrence. Mould remediation requires removing the mould carefully and correctly to eliminate the spread of the spores, so that other rooms or locations around the problematic areas are not exposed. This often requires containing the mouldy materials and removing them from the structure.
Damp diagnosis and mould remediation should always be performed by trained professionals who understand the processes and procedures for the successful elimination of the problem.
We have many of these professionals , who are fully trained in all aspects of damp diagnosis and mould remediation.
They will inspect your property and issue a full survey outlining the cause of the damp conditions and then propose a recommended course of action to eradicate the mould and the conditions in which it thrives.
