Mould Damage Tips & Tricks
How to deal with mould damage in your home
The first step to dealing with mould damage in your home is to first find out if you’re paying for this privately, or if you have insurance cover.
The next step is to contact a professional who knows how to deal with mould and get an opinion from the mould inspector, mould supervisor, or mould technician on the best way to mitigate, then remediate, the environments in your home that have been affected by mould.
Once you have an opinion and a quote, you should proceed with the most suitable option.
What are the signs of mould damage?
The first sign is visible mould, musty odours, or signs of damage.
For example, if tiles are starting to come loose or bubble up, that could indicate hidden damage caused by mould.
At this point it’s important to inspecting sub-floor and look for potential leaks and signs of mould. These include a mouldy odour and/ or signs of a leak.
What do professionals use to kill mould?
We recommend physical removal. In other words, get rid of the source, remove the defective materials and replace them with new ones.
That’s the best way to get rid of mould once and for all. People try chemicals such as peroxides, oxidizers, bleaches, and vinegar, as well as all sorts of concoctions that are manufactured to try and eradicate mould and get rid of mould staining.
However, physical removal is the best option.
