Mould is a type of fungus that mostly grows indoors in damp conditions. It is a type of living organism. Like all other organisms, mould has specific conditions where it can thrive. In general, mould prefers humid and damp environments with little light and airflow. Mould also needs a food source.

If you’re experiencing a mould infestation on your UK property, it is likely one of these three types:

  • Stachybotrys
  • Chaetomium
  • Trichoderma

The Dangers of Mould Exposure

There are over 100,000 species of mould. Depending on the species, it can be allergenic or toxigenic. Mould doesn’t usually affect your health immediately. However, prolonged exposure is the danger. It can lead to several health issues, and even result in death. It is wise to seek the help of a reputable professional that has experience with mould removal.

Long-term exposure to mould and mould spores can lead to:

  • Respiratory Issues
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Rashes
  • Allergic Reactions

Aside from the health hazards, mould also adversely affects its surrounding environment. Untreated mould infestations can cause significant structural and aesthetic damage to your property. Mould requires a food source to grow, which is usually the surface or material that it grows on. Like any organism, the mould will “eat” the food source, thus weakening it. If the mould grows on a load-bearing or integral part of your property’s structure, it can weaken the structure over time.

The risks posed to your property and health mean that you need to take quick, decisive action. With mould, this means hiring a professional mould removal service provider. Get in touch with an experienced provider like Ideal Response: you will mitigate risk.

Why Professional Mould Removal Service

Mould specialists perfect their process over time. For example, we have improved our approach at Ideal Response over time – to remove all traces of mould growth. This includes surface mould as well as airborne spores that are often invisible to the naked eye. When a team of experts is involved:

  • All the work is held to a professional standard
  • They use the best mould remover materials
  • They use up-to-date, modern mould treatment technology

Mould specialists use a systematic mould treatment process. Consider our proprietary process at Ideal Response service, for example.

The Ideal Response Process

First, we remove mould spores and surface mould using HEPA vacuum technology. This is because HEPA technology is the industry standard for a mould and mildew remover. HEPA filter technology captures 99.97% of microscopic particles. This is critical to success in mould removal. Mould spores are very small. Without a HEPA filter, they would pass through traditional filters and re-enter the airspace.

Next, we manually wipe down all contaminated surfaces using fungicidal cleaning solutions. This solution is an effective mould killer that penetrates the substrate. It exterminates mould at the root. When you fail to kill the root, mould regrows in practically no time at all. The solution we use at Ideal Response doesn’t just kill the mould roots. It also creates a protective barrier on the treated surface. Mould won’t grow again on that surface, as long as the long-lasting barrier is active.

Why Should You Hire a Professional?

Professionals like Ideal Response have all the required knowledge, experience and technology required for a successful mould cleanup. We also provide documentation of the entire process and the results. The Ideal Response professional mould removal service consists of:

  • HEPA Vacuuming
  • Fungicidal washdown
  • ULV fogging/ Surface & air decontamination
  • Testing & documentation

State-of-the-art equipment and verifiable post-process set professional mould removal services apart. DIY mould cleanup attempts rarely produce results comparable to an expert service. Many people try to clean affected surfaces with bleach and other household chemicals. Contrary to popular belief, this will exacerbate the mould issue. It adds more moisture to your property’s surfaces. These chemicals are not designed for cleaning mould. The included moisture content actually gives mould more of what it needs to thrive.

In conclusion, a professional mould removal service…

  • deals with the mould proliferation issue you are facing
  • returns your property to its pre-issue condition – completely free of mould and spores
  • offers lasting protection against future mould growth

Note: A mould removal service focuses on the removal of mould. It does not treat the conditions that caused the mould growth in the first place. You need to address the dampness/humidity that creates the mould-friendly environment.
