Mould removal is the process of remaining all forms of mould from within a property. This includes surface mould as well as airborne mould spores.

Removing mould is a complex process. If you want great results, you need professionals with experience and proper equipment. If you find mould on your property, hire a professional mould removal service provider. To prevent the mould from returning, you need to eliminate all traces of it.

What is Mould?

Mould is a type of fungal growth that has over one-hundred-thousand distinct species. Many of these pose serious risks to your property and your health. The most common species found within properties are toxigenic or allergenic in nature. The risks associated show you why it’s crucial to hire a mould specialist like Ideal Response.

Mould thrives in damp or very humid areas with little to no air flow. This combination will result in surfaces and materials becoming saturated. It is on these surfaces that mould spores are able to take root and grow. When an environment like this develops within your property, mould grows and thrives.

Identifying Signs of Mould

The easiest way to find mould in your property is to look for visual signs. You will likely find mould behind furniture or in rooms that are exposed to a lot of steam or water. Examples include bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, crawl spaces, and saunas. Mould growth will likely be black, brown, or green in colour and have a furry texture.

Signs and indicators of mould proliferation you should look out for include:

  • Musty odours
  • Headaches
  • Skin rashes
  • Respiratory issues
  • Black/Brown/Green patches on surfaces

The Professional Mould Removal Process

Professional mould cleaners and similar specialists follow specific processes for successful mould elimination. Mould removal services eliminate all traces of mould. Professional cleaners carefully treat all the different aspects of the issue. 

Surface mould is only one part of the issue. If you have visible signs of mould, you will likely also have airborne spores that are very difficult to see. It is these airborne spores that cause health issues and enable the spread of mould. Think of the spores as seeds from a flower. These ‘seeds’ take root and grow into a flower – mould. The cycle restarts once the mould reaches maturity.

Ideal Response is a reputed mould treatment provider. We use industry-leading mould removal technology to target surface mould and airborne spores. In fact, we also promise 100% odour removal besides removing mould itself. Mould has a distinct musty smell. Unless you treat it like we do, the smell will linger even after you remove surface and airborne spores.

Ideal Response’s Unique Service

Hiring Ideal Response guarantees that you get the best mould treatment. We have over 20 years of experience in the damage restoration and specialist hygiene solutions industry. Over the years, we’ve perfected our mould-cleaning process to guarantee long-lasting results. This now includes steps like:

  • HEPA vacuuming: We begin our service with HEPA vacuum technology. HEPA filters are designed to capture even the smallest particles. The spores can easily pass through a traditional vacuum filter and re-enter the air. Our technicians use HEPA vacuum equipment to capture 99.9% of the airborne mould spores.
  • Manual washdown + fungicidal solution: Next, we manually wash down surfaces. Here, we use specialist mould killer and mould-and-mildew-remover cleaning solutions. These fungicidal solutions kill the root of the mould. This way, they create a long-lasting barrier that protects against future mould growth.
  • ULV Fogging/ Disinfection: Once all traces of the mould and spores are gone, we use ULV fogging technology. This disperses a broad-spectrum disinfectant for 100% odour removal.
