Got mould in your prop­erty? Here is a step by step guide on how to

pro­fes­sion­ally remove it for good!


Mould detec­tion in your prop­erty is usu­ally by one of two means; visual or smell. It occurs due to mois­ture prob­lems and poor vent­il­a­tion and is detec­ted as a musty smell or on first appear­ance a speck­ling of dis­col­our­a­tion on walls, ceil­ings, clothes, tiles, bricks etc. If left untreated this can turn into dense heavy growths.

Warn­ing mould can cause ser­i­ous health problems!

Mould can cause ser­i­ous health prob­lems and action must be taken to remove and pre­vent it from re-occurring.

Prior to determ­in­ing the best treat­ment for the removal of the mould you need to ana­lyse the mater­ial the mould is grow­ing on or in and whether it is best to treat the sub­strate or remove and replace it completely.

If it is pos­sible to remove the mould by treat­ment, you will need some com­mon items prior to start­ing. These include pro­tect­ive cloth­ing such as thick rub­ber gloves, enclosed foot­wear and socks, a face mask to pre­vent vapours being inhaled or products com­ing in con­tact with eyes and depend­ing on the products used you may also need a full pro­tect­ive suit to cover the entire body. You will also need brushes, drop tarps and rags, dry­ing cloths and a good sup­ply of clean water. Depend­ing on the type of mater­ial the mould is grow­ing on you may also need dis­tilled vin­egar, tea tree oil or sodi­um­hy­dro­chlor­ide solu­tion for effect­ive removal.


Here are the steps to suc­cess­ful mould removal

No mat­ter the type of mater­ial affected the clean­ing pro­cess is best to begin with a few simple steps:

  • Get all your products ready includ­ing plenty of clean water for acci­dental spills or expos­ure to skin or eyes.
  • Put on your safety gear and get your equip­ment ready.
  • Place your drop sheets down to pro­tect items in the area that are not being treated.

Now you’re ready to clean the mould in your property

To ensure the clean­ing product gets down into all cracks and crevices, it’s a good idea to spray or apply it dir­ectly to the brush and scrub deeply. Remove excess product after treat­ment and wipe dry with rags. Clean up the area when fin­ished and remove equip­ment and tarps. Then ensure the area is well vent­il­ated. If treat­ment has not worked suf­fi­ciently and mould reappears it may be neces­sary to remove and place the mater­i­als or con­sult a professional.
