What is mould?

Mould is a fungus that grows in the form of multicellular filaments called hyphae. Mould is natural and forms an important part of our environment by breaking down dead organic matter such as dead trees and leaves. Mould indoors however, should be removed immediately. Mould spores are miniscule and can go undetected by the naked eye. The spores can grow and spread rapidly when they come in contact with moist surfaces. There are many different types of mould and they require moisture, oxygen and food sources to grow. If you have mould in your home or property it is of the utmost importance that you professionally remove the mould immediately as it can lead to health risks.

How do I kill mould?

You can’t! When mould spores are deprived of nutrients such as food, moisture, oxygen or warmth, they go dormant. Once mould spores are dormant they no long release mycotoxins. To remove mould, we remove the nutrients and professionally clean your affected surfaces using our advanced equipment and expertise.

Signs of Mould and Health Risks

Mould spores spread and grow in temperatures ranging from 4 degrees to 37 degrees Celsius. Once the spores are disturbed they can become airborne and spread throughout your business or home. Once spores are airborne they can also spread via the HVAC system. It’s crucial that once you have detected mould you act quickly to remove it.

What causes mould?

Moisture in the air, poor ventilation, leaks or damp areas can often cause mould. Simple activities such as cleaning, cooking or bathing can lead to mould. Dampness caused by condensation from indoor plants, air conditioners or fish tanks can also be responsible for mould.

Signs of mould

A strange smell: Mould can often go unseen. If you start noticing a pungent musty smell, it could mean you have been affected. Mould is a master at hiding behind wallpaper or within your walls and therefore can go untreated for far too long. If you start noticing an unusual musty or moldy smell in a confined area of your home, contact us to inspect your home and assess whether mould removal is necessary.

What does mould look like: There are many different kinds of moulds and all vary in appearance and colour. Mould can be green, black, white, orange and blue. Black and green moulds are most commonly found in homes.

What does mould need to grow?

Mould hates clean, dry and well ventilated areas. Mould can grow and spread easily throughout your home or business when these 4 key factors are present:

  1. Mould feeds off organic materials such as plants, paper and wood.
  2. Mould is living and breathing and therefore it needs oxygen to survive.
  3. For mould to spread it needs water. You will often see mould close to a leaky pipe or moist areas.
  4. Mould loves dark areas that don’t have a lot of natural light like basements, cellars or within walls.

Mould can affect your health

Once mould is in your property or home, it can easily spread through your HVAC system. Mould is a serious health hazard and can cause allergies and respiratory problems. Toxic moulds produce mycotoxins which can enter the body through ingestion, inhalation or through the eyes. Mycotoxins are invisible. Whether the mould on your property is toxic or not, it should be removed immediately before it spreads.

Symptoms of mould exposure

If you’ve noticed that your health problems often start as soon as you enter your home or office, you may have a mould problem. If you or someone in your office or home is experiencing nasal and sinus congestion, eye irritation, a runny nose or respiratory problems like wheezing, chest tightness or difficulty breathing, it might be mould. Mould can also cause skin irritation such as a rash and headaches.

Q: What is mould?

A: Mould is a fungus that grows in the form of multicellular filaments called hyphae. Mould is a natural part of our environment and breaks down dead organic matter such as dead trees and leaves.

Q: Why is there mould in my home or commercial property?
