Why mould is present in your property
Mould is always caused by excessive moisture in the indoor environment. This excessive moisture is always caused by one or both of the following:
1. Water ingress
Water ingress will come from any of the following - burst pipe, flood, overflow in a bathroom or laundry etc.. Water ingress leading to mould growth can also invade a built environment if external walls have a lack of waterproofing but this is not generally responsible for an outbreak of mould growth.
2. A lack of ventilation
If a dwelling lacks adequate ventilation, then the moisture created by those who occupy the environment through everyday occurrences like washing, drying clothes, breathing, cooking etc becomes trapped in the building. Once it is trapped the moisture will come into contact with mould spores (as part of household dust) and mould growth will form.
This is very common in wet areas like bathrooms, laundries and kitchens where mould problems often persist.
This moisture commonly manifests itself as condensation. 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.
The mould remediation or treatment process consists of four parts, all of equal importance. These are as follows:
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.
CLEAN - The mould cleaning process involves hand cleaning of the affected areas, air-scrubbing 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 accessible by hand.
DRY - After the initial cleaning process, the property is dried using artificial heat (to assist with evaporation), dehumidification, artificial ventilation and air movement.
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.
