We are mould remediation experts based in Melbourne. Contact us by telephoning 1300 382 826 , or emailing us, for solutions to all your mould issues.
Our professional mould removal services will expertly identify and remove existing mould and then prevent further growth of mould. We can identify mould growth, test the indoor air for mould spores and determine the cause of the mould generation, and then our trained technicians can thoroughly clean mould growth from all surfaces - and most importantly, treat the area and the cause of the mould so there will be no return. Guaranteed. We can also undertake mould testing on the identifiable mould growths if required.

Mould is always caused by excessive moisture in the indoor or subfloor environment. This excessive moisture is always caused by either moisture intrusion (burst pipe, flood, overflow etc) and/or a lack of ventilation which does not allow the natural moisture in the air to escape from the building structure. As the air heats and cools during the course of the day and night, the moisture which is held suspended in the indoor air, can drop from the air and form on the colder surfaces of the property - windows, doors, curtains, ceilings etc. This moisture manifests itself as either condensation or visible mould. Accordingly, both the cause of the excessive moisture (water intrusion or a lack of ventilation)and the end result of the excessive moisture (mould, condensation formation) need to be treated at the same time, if the end goal is to permanently rid the building of mould and condensation.

Professional mould removal services are often required to ensure the health and safety of both residential and commercial properties. Excessive moisture poses a threat to human health and the structural integrity of the building.

The mould remediation or treatment process consists of four parts, all of equal importance. These are as follows:

1. INSPECT - The initial mould inspection will reveal the visible mould growth, the level of mould spores (invisible mould) and the reasons for the mould generation (moisture intrusion and/or lack of ventilation). From the initial inspection we can determine the correct action to rid the property of both the causes of the mould generation and the mould generation itself.

2. CLEAN - The mould cleaning process involves hand cleaning of the affected areas, airscrubbing of the indoor air to remove mould spores and chemical cleaning via a process known as 'fogging' as a secondary but important cleansing of areas that may not be accessable by hand.

3. DRY - After the initial cleaning process, the property is dried using artificial heat (to assist with evaporation), dehumidification, artificial ventilation and air movement, all computer controlled via our Drymatic (pictured right).

4. VENTILATE - Once the drying process is complete, ventilation should be added (if required) to ensure no repeat of the mould generation. This is achieved by adding new or repairing existing passive vents, educating the residents on natural ventilation procedures and/or adding a forced mechanical ventilation system to the property.
