What is Mould, and what are the Reasons Behind Mould Growth?

Mould is a fungus that looks awful, and it can cause major health risks if not treated ASAP. It is caused by excessive moisture in poorly ventilated and damp areas, for example – laundry, bathrooms, etc. Usually, Mould needs moisture and an organic surface to develop.

In other cases, Mould may grow from water ingress because of burst pipes, bathrooms, overflown laundry, etc. All these aspects can promote mould growth on Ceiling, Floors, walls, and even on Carpets.

Mould tends to blacken the shower tiles, grout lines as well as silicone sealing. It often shows up as black patches on the ceiling and walls. It also releases microscopic spores that cause bad odour as well as allergic reactions.

How to identify whether it is Mould or something else?

In common cases, the visible Mould is called mildew. It starts developing as small black spots. Then it further grows into large mould colonies. Shower grouts with mildew growth often look like amassed dirt.

To identify, just put several drops of bleach on shower grouts and then leave it to react for 10 min. If you see the blackish grout lines lighten, it is likely to be mildew. Otherwise, it is amassed dirt. Be careful while using bleach since, if spilled, bleach can cause damages to your skin as well as floors.

How We Perform Mould Removal Melbourne

At Ola Clean, we cover a wide range of mould problems, including the highly toxic black Mould, aka Stachybotrys Chartarum, and others.

We execute a four-step mould removal process as follows:

  1. Inspection: Ola Clean mould removal professionals will first identify the areas infested with mould growth while we will also check out the level of mould growth. We use specialised equipment for measuring the moisture level. For checking the wet areas, we first focus on drying them with our industrial fans. As per the level of water or moisture, it might take a few hours to a few days to dry out. Then we can proceed with the next step.
  2. Mould Cleaning: In this step, we clean the affected areas with our professional methods for removing all the visible Mould. Often, some areas of the affected area need more work than the other regions. For example, if there is excessive Mould on the carpet, it may not be recovered and might need replacement.
  3. Fogging Remediation/ Treatment: After cleaning is done, we spray a special agent indoors to fight excess invisible mould spores from the air. This helps in improving air quality while reducing the chances of future mould infestation. This remediation process is also called decontamination fogging. As advised by the technician, windows, or doors should not be open for up to 3 hours after this application.

     4.    Prevention: We will guide you on how to keep your property free from Mould. After 3 hours of the prevention process, you will be allowed to re-enter premises, open the doors, windows or turn on any exhaust fan.

What about DIY Mould cleaning?

Before you attempt to clean Mould yourself, you should be aware of the points below:

  1. Don’t use bleach for cleaning mould since it is not effective in mould removal. It takes the colour from the surface because of its bleaching nature and thus, makes it even worse by hiding the mould roots.
  2. If you fail to remove the Mould, it will disturb the Mould, making them release mycotoxins and mould spores. These can promote respiratory, allergic and various other health problems.
  3. When you clean all the visible Mould, half of the job gets done. But it is also important to treat the air-borne & invisible mould spores.

How to Prevent Mould in Residential and Commercial Premises?

  1. Well ventilated places don’t usually grow any mould problems. Therefore, if you keep the doors and windows open for at least 10 to 15 min a day, you can easily prevent such issues. Also, turn on the exhaust during or after washing, bathing, and cooking activities.
  2. Mould also tends to grow back after cleaning. In the case you have minor mould problems at home, you can try DIY mould cleaning.
  3. And, for large Mould infested area, hire mould removal experts in Melbourne.

Frequently Asked Questions about Carpet Cleaning

Mould growth usually occurs when there is moisture or a water source present in an environment with restricted or no sunlight.

Mould produces air-borne mould spores in the indoor environment, and that affects health.

Besides water intrusion events, for example, flooding, leaking roofs, damaged pipes or hot water systems, etc., excessive humidity is another main reason causing Mould.
