BLACK MOULD REMOVAL

Mould is a type of fungus that comes in many shapes and colours including green, black, grey, or even brown.

Black mould is particularly unsightly and can eventually cause permanent damage to your home’s panels, paint, furnishings, clothes, and other belongings.

Black mould removal is a critical part of maintaining your property because the black mould indicates problems with moisture in the home. If left untreated mould can lead to expensive repair bills and a lowering of your property value.

Effective black mould removal requires a multi-prong approach and is best undertaken by professionals.

Your average DIY approach will not get to the root of your mould problem and will at best only temporarily remove the mould stains and may even spread the mould spores.

If you try and undertake black mould removal yourself you also risk overlooking the deeper cause of your mould problem. The reality is black mould can indicate serious structural issues or leaking plumbing in your home.

If left untreated these leaks can create extraordinarily expensive repair jobs down the line. And guess what; some insurance companies may refuse to pay out for this type of damage.

Avoid this expensive mistake and call in the mould removal and remediation experts: Mould Cleaning Australia.

BLACK MOULD REMOVAL FROM WALLS

Black mould loves walls because:
  • Furniture, drapes and other objects close up to walls prevent adequate air movement and promote mould growth
  • Potential plumbing leaks within walls support mould growth
  • Damp insulation retains dampness and makes a wonderful home for mould
  • Leaks around window and door frames can lead to mould in wall panels

Walls are common sites for mould growth, especially in corners or where furniture and poor ventilation allows mould to flourish.

Check regularly behind curtains, wardrobes, and pictures for signs of black mould. Black mould around window or door frames or near the ceiling could indicate structural problems that allow moisture to leak into the wall.

If you have mould in wet areas such as bathrooms or laundries this could indicate a plumbing leak.

The professional team from Mould Cleaning Australia will measure moisture content, temperature, humidity, dew point and particle count in order to locate the cause and identify any structural problems.

We use a safe tested process to remove the mould from walls without damaging paintwork or delicate fabrics. Our products are safe for all surfaces including timber, gyprock, and concrete.

We offer a 12-month guarantee against mould returning.

BLACK MOULD REMOVAL FROM CEILINGS

Ceilings are prone to black mould issues because:
  • Warm air accumulates near the ceiling creating a cosy environment for mould particularly in bathrooms where the air is especially moist
  • Ceiling areas usually lack adequate ventilation
  • Ceilings are prone to mould growth from leaking roofs or plumbing
  • Storm damage commonly damages roofing and causes water damage to ceilings

Black mould on the ceilings maybe the first sign that you have a serious problem such as a leaking roof or plumbing.

It’s important to identify the cause of ceiling mould quickly before serious damage is done to ceiling panels and roofing structures.

Black mould on the ceiling is also commonly associated with bathrooms where rising steam and poor ventilation create the perfect conditions for mould growth.

The Mould Cleaning Australia experts will take precise moisture content, temperature, humidity, dew point and particle count measurements in order to locate the cause.

We isolate any structural problems as well as provide you with a detailed report on any remedial action that is necessary before we remove the mould.

Our two-step approach to black mould removal uses safe, tested, industry-leading processes to remove the mould from ceilings.

Most painted surfaces will not require repainting unless the paint was already in a poor state of repair.

We use a specially formulated fogging product to remove all mould spores from ceiling cavities so you can be sure that the mould won’t be coming back.

BLACK MOULD REMOVAL FROM WINDOWS

Windows and doors are potential happy places for black mould because:
  • Poorly installed windows allow water into the wall cavity
  • Condensation collects on windows and drips onto wooden window frames (often untreated timber)
  • Inadequate flashings allow wind-blown rain to enter wall cavities
  • Drapes absorb window condensation and promote mould growth

A prime area for mould growth on windows is behind drapes and in the corners of window frames.

Poor ventilation and excessive condensation are the usual culprits but there could be more serious problems that need to be remedied for mould removal to be effective.

We’ll identify the cause of your mould problem with pinpoint precision. Once any necessary remedial steps have been completed our tested and approved mould removal products will quickly remove all mould right from the roots.

Our processes are safe for most surfaces including delicate fabrics.

BLACK MOULD REMOVAL FROM GROUT

Black mould loves grouted surfaces because:
  • Grout surfaces often experience steamy and moist conditions (bathrooms, kitchens)
  • Grout can be difficult to clean and to remove all food and dirt traces

The grouting between tiled surfaces is another common mould problem area. Remedial action may need to include improving ventilation with extractor fans or other ventilation aids.

Our team members are accredited Goldmorr Master Technicians so you know your special tile surfaces will get special treatment.

We’re so confident that our products and processes are some of the best in the industry that we offer a 12-month guarantee against the return of mould.

BLACK MOULD REMOVAL FROM FABRIC

Fabrics such as curtains, clothes, sofa backs are prone to black mould because fabrics:
  • Absorb moisture from the atmosphere
  • Provide an sheltered breeding ground for mould
  • Are frequently in areas of poor ventilation such as wardrobes or against walls

Effective mould removal from fabrics usually needs three things: remedying issues such as condensation and poor ventilation, removal of the mould, and cleaning mould stains.

Our Goldmorr Master Technicians use specially formulated products and approved processes to remediate almost all fabrics from drapes, to leather, cotton and furnishings.

We offer a comprehensive inspection report free of charge and this will outline any extra costs that might be associated with particularly difficult to clean fabrics as well as identify any fabric articles that are beyond remediation for insurance purposes.

BLACK MOULD REMOVAL FROM SHOWERS

Shower trays, walls, and ceilings are the perfect space for black mould growth thanks to:
  • Near constant warm, moist conditions
  • Relatively low light
  • Poor ventilation

Mould frequently inhabits shower tray stalls especially where panels overlap the shower tray or where silicone sealant has been used and also in the ceiling where steam collects.

Make sure you always use the extractor fan or open a window when showering to allow steam to evaporate. If more ventilation is needed that should be remedied before mould removal takes place.

There is a lot of potential for plumbing leaks around showers and bathrooms too and this possibility should also be ruled out before mould remediation takes place.

We provide a comprehensive inspection report absolutely free that will identify the precise cause of your mould problem.

The report will also explain how our Goldmorr Master Technicians will completely remove your black mould infestation. Our 12-month guarantee is your assurance that the mould won’t be coming back.

POROUS SURFACES

Porous surfaces and mould often go hand in hand because porous surfaces:
  • Absorb and retain moisture
  • Suffer from poor ventilation
  • Cannot be easily cleaned

Our Goldmorr Master Technicians can quickly identify the source of black mould on any porous surface. Our tested and approved products and processes are the perfect solution for black mould removal on any porous surface in your home.

IS BLACK MOULD DANGEROUS FOR MY HEALTH?

Mould may make existing health conditions worse.

Black mould produces millions of microscopic airborne spores and these may cause problems for people with weakened immune systems or for those with respiratory conditions such as asthma.

Government agencies recommend the removal of mould from homes because of the associated risks for such people.

HOW MOULD SPORES REPRODUCE
WHAT CAUSES BLACK MOULD?

Mould is a type of fungus and like most fungi thrive where damp conditions exist. Humidity and rising damp are probably the two most common causes of mould growth.

This is particularly true in NSW, Victoria and Queensland where climatic conditions include wet seasons or wet winters, tropical storms, and high levels of humidity.

Old, heritage homes and buildings make up a large part of Australian housing and the dated construction techniques contribute to a mould epidemic.

Poor design and the lack of underfloor insulation allow moisture to seep up through the floor. This is particularly true in some of the low-lying valley population centres where flooding and storm damage is an almost annual event.

High levels of humidity or moisture in the home is a major cause of mould problems.

The use of certain types of heating such as unflued gas heaters tends to generate excessive condensation and this will contribute to any mould problem on your property. Using a dehumidifier can help.

Avoid turning your air conditioning down to low in the summer because the extreme variation between outside and inside temperatures will create condensation.
