Concern about indoor exposure to mould has been increasing as the public become aware that it can cause a variety of health effects and symptoms including allergic reactions.
Mould is one of the major factors in the increase of asthma and other respiratory diseases in recent years and there is a renewed concentration by landlords and social housing providers to ensure that their tenants are not affected by conditions which can cause a health risk. Landlords and homeowners often underestimate the severity of mould and the degree of difficulty in diagnosing the causes of this extremely unhealthy condition.
The causes of the mould infestation need to be identified and corrected or the mould will return very quickly. Care also needs to be taken when removing mould from a property. Simply cleaning the surface contaminated may not kill all the mould, and could trigger the release of its spores, aggravating the problem and promoting re-occurrence.
Mould remediation requires removing the mould carefully and correctly to eliminate the spread of the spores so that other rooms or locations around the problematic areas are not exposed. This often requires containing the mouldy materials and removing them from the structure.
Damp Diagnosis and Mould Remediation should always be performed by trained professionals who understand the causes, processes and procedures to enable the problem to be successfully brought under control.
