Mould Removal Gold Coast Specialist Service
Mould Removal is an important service in Australia. The further north you travel, the more humidity plays a role.
This is very true in this part of the world. Chem-Dry On The Coast has many years of experience in dealing with water damage restoration and mould remediation work in places like Surfers Paradise, Burleigh Heads and even Coolangatta.
Why is Mould Removal Important?
Mould is found in just about all homes. The health impacts of mould may become an issue when the spores are visible in large quantities.
Many respiratory symptoms are linked to either mould spores or dust mites or both. Our humid summer climate ensures that mould removal is required in many homes on the Gold Coast.
Mould contribute to poor indoor air quality. The spores of mould are linked to skin rashes, frequent bouts of sneezing and/or asthma. The related health problems contribute to the concept of a sick house syndrome. There is a very strong link between moisture and mould. Homes away from the Australian eastern seaboard tend to have far fewer mould issues.
What Can You Do To Keep Mould Under Control?
Make sure that your home is properly ventilated. Without air movement, mould cannot incubate. You may want to invest in moisture absorbers in cupboards.
Brands like Pingi or Damprid will keep the moisture levels under control. Some people will also invest in a couple of small electrical dehumidifiers to keep moisture levels down. It is also true that mouldy shoes and leather clothing are best thrown out.
If you see mould in the home it is best to remove the mould as soon as possible. Additional moisture to visible mould leads to millions of new mould spores.
This means that mould should never be sprayed with something like a diluted bleach based product. Research has shown that most retail mould killing products do not contain enough chemical to have a longterm control impact.
You are far better off using a combination of microfibre cloths, soapy water and vinegar mixture to do the job. Use the first cloth wet to remove the mould and then dry the cleaned area with a second cloth. It is important to wear an appropriate respirator whilst doing this work.
Properties that have suffered water damage should always be dried and remediated by a professional. The temptation to let wet carpet, walls or ceilings dry naturally is great in many instances.
All you are effectively doing is laying the groundwork for excessive mould incubation in the home.
