How To Get Rid of Mould Problems

Mould is a major problem in many homes and it not only causes structural damage to your property but also your health. Before mould appears on a surface it can be building up behind your wallpaper, on the back of your furniture and even in your kitchen cupboards. When it does appear the mould can spread quickly, appearing around the tiling in your bathroom, discolouring your walls and ceilings. Sometimes you can smell it in your property before you see it, causing a musty, damp smell throughout your home.

If the damage caused by the mould was not bad enough, it can also be harmful to your health. The mould growing in your home releases microscopic spores that cause allergic reactions and respiratory problems.

So how do you get rid of mould in your home?

It is important to understand how and why mould appears. Mould appears in your home because the humidity and the moisture levels are creating the perfect environment. When you run a bath, boil a kettle, dry clothes indoors or get a shower you are creating moisture in the air. Even when you breathe you increase the build up of moisture.

You will find many articles online that tell you to wash mould away with bleach and warm water but this will only stop the mould appearing on the surface. Usually the mould problem has been festering behind the scenes for a long period of time and due to the harmful toxins that mould spores release we would always recommend contacting a specialist who has the necessary equipment to eradicate the problem.

We have experts in your area who can check your mould problems and advise you on the best solution.

Banish mould permanently.

As we make our homes more energy efficient with loft, wall and floor insulation in addition to double and triple glazed windows, our homes become more airtight. This causes a build up of moisture and because there is no place for the moisture to escape, it results in condensation appearing on windows and walls.

These warm, damp conditions that usually begin in bathrooms, kitchens or in the cavity between your walls, creates the perfect environment for mould to grow and spread. The only way to permanently get rid of mould that has started to appear within your home is to tackle the problem head on by cutting off the source - the moisture in your home. 

We understand that every property and every problem is different which is why we have experts across the UK who are on hand to understand the extent of the problem and carry out a home survey to test the relative humidity in the property and check the airflow rates.
