The property is located west of Brisbane is situated within a quiet suburban cul-de-sac behind a combination of tall palm and gum trees, experiencing minimal sun throughout the day.
The insurance company engaged Mould Cleaning Australia to determine the damage to the property as a result of an insurable event.
There were major concerns of a mould infestation occurring within the ceiling cavity, and possibly wall cavity in the library area.
Upon inspection, there were high moisture readings on the external wall and on the ceiling where the majority of the water damage had occurred.
Mould Cleaning Australia were able to confirm the mould was a result of the recent storm with moisture traveling through the roof on to the ceiling.
The substantial amount of mould growth was evident on the ceiling of the library area within the property.
Due to storm event there was significant water damage recorded to the ceiling, providing excess moisture and therefore an ideal environment for mould to form.
On the Job (Equipment, Process and Job Time):
In order for Mould Cleaning Australia to effectively remediate the Library area, approval was requested from the insurance company to remove the affected ceiling plaster, of approximately 6m2 as this was heavily water damaged and could not be salvaged.
Due to the considerable amount of moisture present within the ceiling cavity, we needed to ensure the ceiling cavity was inspected and treated to prevent any further risks of mould growth.
The remaining framework within the ceiling cavity was treated with GM6000 to remove any microbial growth, leaving a clean surface.
