Moisture Control Services adopts Australian Mould Guideline AMG - 2005 where eight steps should be taken when performing mould remediation:

·         Assess the level of contamination and risk

·         Contain contaminated materials and contents

·         Remove contaminated materials and contents

·         Permanently fix the underlying cause

·         Dry the moisture from materials and contents

·         Clean fungal growth from remaining surfaces

·         Prevent cross contamination and

·         Protect the health of workers and occupants

The key to successful remediation is to ensure each step taken is advancing the process, not going backward or sideways. This indicates the wrong sequence of work was scheduled by the mould remediator.

Removal of contaminated items in the process would include porous materials (gypsum board, ceiling tiles, insulation and wallpaper), carpet, books, paper, fabric items, curtains, cloths (if valuable, restoration can be attempted). If mould is widely spread certain non porous items cannot be effectively restored (e.g. electrical items like toasters, equipment with vents leading into the power source like computer equipment, televisions etc).

In very severe mould outbreaks it may affect all your content items and structure of your home (e.g. furniture, fittings, fixtures, floor, walls, ceiling, etc).

An important element when treating mould is the analogy between mould and an iceberg. You only see 10% of an ice berg as 90% is below the sea level. Mould is very similar where the majority of mould is microscopic (invisible to the human eye) and when you can see it, this means you have an outbreak but the contamination is widely spread beyond the visible patches and this is why mould sampling is important in order to identify all contaminated areas.

If you incur a mould problem serious health issues can be encounter - please go to our web site for detailed information.
