Getting Rid of the Mould in Your House

Moulds are some of those things that slowly creep into our lives without even noticing. Unless you are asthmatic, you are unlikely to notice any change in the quality of the air in your living quarters. They generally grow so fast that before we even notice them, they are all over the place in the house. It is not easy to track every little growth of mould in your house but there are ways in which you can keep a lid on the growth of the mould by for example putting in a place a stringent routine of mould removals. For example, you could hire a professional mould removal in Sydney to carry out periodic inspections and removal of any kind that is growing in the house.

The best way to prevent the growth of mould in the house is by reducing the amount of moisture on the surfaces as much as possible. Keep the house clean and dry at all times. This is a far more effective technique than constantly hiring a professional mould removal Sydney service.

Preliminary Steps

The clean-up process for the mould removal is generally quite labour intensive even though it is a very simple procedure. Before you start with a clean-up process, take time to sort out the mouldy items and categorise them into the porous, non-porous and semi-porous. The mould on the semi-porous items such as clothes, textile and furniture may not be eliminated entirely. The mould will not only stain in a ghastly manner, but it will likely eat into these materials so the chances of 100% spotless removal are next to nil. Where the mould has grown on the fabrics, there is a very high likelihood that the fabric will have been permanently damaged by the mould and you will need to replace it.

For the non-porous surfaces such as plastics, the mould removal process will be an extremely easy affair as it can be easily scraped off with the help of the appropriate detergents or solvents. Carpets meanwhile can be quite problematic with mould and in many cases, you may need to replace these as it is not easy to wash off the mould that has grown into the fabric.

The Process of Removing the Mould

The first step to removing the mould is to vacuum it thoroughly. This will only be effective if the vacuum which you are using is equipped with a very powerful HEPA filter. Without that, you will only be worsening the problem by spreading the mould around the house. After the vacuuming, you can proceed with removing the remnants of it by, for example, using a diluted vinegar solution. This will cause the mould to overheat and then die.

Employ Professional Mould Cleaning

 If the mould is covering a large surface area and is relatively dense, it is advisable to call in the professional mould removal Sydney experts. For some people, mould can be toxic and cause allergic reactions or hypersensitivity. Such people are, therefore, unable to carry out DIY mould removal service and it is best they call in professional removal service. The costs will vary from one service provider to another. It is advisable to carry out a comparison of the various services based on the quality and pricing before settling for any particular mould removal Sydney contractor.
