How To Treat Mould Like A Pro

How To Treat Mould Like A Pro

On our way to a mould job, Anthony began to explain how mould spores thrive on moisture, warmth and nourishment. He explained that winter is the busiest time of year due to the increased moisture, poor ventilation and a longer drying off period in most homes. As we continued our chat I started to learn more about mould and common cleaning practices.

Expert’s Notes: You should never use bleach to clean mould.

Painting over mould hides the mould, it doesn’t get rid of the mould.

The black stuff we see is the mould waste or excrement. The real mould lives in the walls and or ceiling and is so tiny we can’t see it.

Mould floats around in the air. Even if we remove it from one wall, it’s likely to show up in other areas.

Andy & Kate mentioned that their youngest son suffers from asthma and they think the mould mycotoxins could be causing a more severe reaction when he is at home, which is why they have called in the professionals.

Anthony eased their fears and assured that he will bring back the mould spore levels to normal and remove all excrement seen on the walls and ceiling. I was not in my comfort zone and to Anthony’s delight he had me dressed up in a white protective suit with respirators. I was soon dripping in sweat and have a new sense of admiration for these hard working technicians.

E-Dry is licensed to use the Goldmorr® System of Mould Remediation which has been tested and proven over time. Anthony cleaned down the entire ceiling and walls in a matter of a few hours. The anti-mould product used penetrates into the wall or ceiling to treat the mould so it does an amazing job. Once done we micro-misted all the rooms to remove invisible spores and prevent any re-colonisation.

E-Dry is very confident in our work and guarantee that the mould won’t return for at least 12 months. But as part of that guarantee you need to take up E-Dry’s anti-mould misting service to treat any mould that’s in the air. This helps make sure the mould doesn’t pop up elsewhere in the home. And of course, you will need to fix the moisture leak or humidity issue that caused the mould problem in the first place. Usually this just requires a little more ventilation but guys like Anthony can give you some great advice on these things.

Andy, Kate and the kids had to stay out the house for 5 hours after the job was done, which was no biggie as they were going over to friends for the afternoon. To my surprise this was actually a pretty small job - with the misting it cost $600. The basement shower room looks incredible and smells so much better, plus it will be much safer for their son. Money well spent.
