The health risks associated with mould exposure

Mould expose a homeowner to a variety of health risks, including:

  • Respiratory problems
  • Skin irritation
  • Headaches
  • Allergies
  • Asthma

These health risks are particularly dangerous for young children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems. If you or someone in your home is suffering from any of these health problems, it’s essential to get in touch with a mould removal specialist as soon as possible.

How to identify mould in your home

Identifying mould in your home can be tricky, as it often grows in hidden places. To help you spot mould, keep an eye out for:

Discoloured walls or ceilings

Peeling paint

Condensation

Musty odours

If you suspect that there might be mould in your home, it’s important to carry out a thorough inspection. Once you’ve found the mould, you’ll need to take a sample of it so that you can send it off for testing.

If you’re dealing with a small amount of mould, you might be able to remove it yourself using a mould removal kit. However, if the problem is more widespread, it’s best to call in a professional.

The steps you need to take to remove mould from your property

Removing mould is best left to a professional, especially if it is widespread. The process entails;

Inspection

Finding and identifying the source of the problem is the first step in treating mould. If you can see visible mould, there is likely to be more hidden behind walls or under floorboards. Use a torch to look in dark corners and check for any musty smells that could indicate mould.

Sampling

Once the source of the problem has been identified, a professional will take a sample to be sent off for analysis. This will help identify the mould type and determine the best course of action for removal.

Containment

To prevent the spread of mould spores, containment is essential. This involves setting up physical barriers, such as plastic sheeting to isolate the affected area. Negative air pressure machines may also be used to prevent mould spores from circulating.

Removal

The next step is removal, and there are a few different ways this can be done. Small areas of mould can often be removed with detergent and a scrub brush. For larger areas, however, it is best to call in a professional.

Cleaning

Once the mould has been removed, it is important to clean the area thoroughly. This will remove any remaining mould spores and prevent them from recolonising. A combination of detergent and bleach is usually effective, but always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
