Situated in North Melbourne, VIC in a newly established estate the single level home was built only recently.
Mould Cleaning Australia were engaged by the policy holders insurance company and requested to attend site for an inspection as another tradesman that had been replacing the kitchen cabinets and come across extensive amounts of mould.
Upon our inspection, the technician conducted moisture readings and inspected the wall cavity via a non-invasive method using a highly advanced borescope which uncovered that there was mould contamination throughout the wall cavity in the kitchen
The water staining indicated that there had been a previous water leak caused by a dishwasher. The trapped moisture from the leak created the perfect environment for mould growth to occur.
On the Job (Equipment, Process and Job Time):
On the day of remediation Mould Cleaning Australia conducted indoor air quality analysis before and after the job this is to show a comparison and to ensure the particle count is at standard and the air quality in the home was satisfactory.
The technician then installed air purification units which are left running for the entire duration of the treatment to remove and capture airborne mould spores.
It was required for the technician to remove the effected areas of plaster and skirting as the water damage had compromised the plaster wall linings.
Once the technicians had removed the effected plaster and skirting they than treated all remaining surface including framework, flooring and plaster wall linings with GM6000, removing staining and ensuring the areas were mould-free.
