Mould remediation Brisbane

Professional & safe mould removal

Mould is a naturally occurring fungus that thrives in a damp, moist or humid, poorly ventilated environment. Mould grows mainly in places prone to water damage and leakage. Some of the areas in your home that are prone to mould growth include the roof, ceiling, attic, or crawl space, the area beneath and around the sink, the ductworks, water pipes, windows, and the HVAC (heating/ventilation/air conditioning) system.

Mould Remediation

Effects of mould contamination 

Mould can be a serious health hazard when it grows indoors. Mould sensitivity affects many people, who can develop allergic or asthmatic symptoms quickly. Such people might experience wheezing or shortness of breath, stuffy nose, and red or itchy eyes or skin. The symptoms might be severe for people with underlying lung and chronic respiratory complications due to prolonged exposure to mould, and, in rare cases, it can result in death.

In addition, a mould infestation can result in an unpleasant smell in your home. In the case of black mould growth, black sightings or stains would form on the affected areas and deface the surfaces. Therefore, it is entirely not a bad idea to carry out mould cleaning before selling or buying a home.

We carry out mould inspections in Brisbane to ensure that it is indeed a case of mould infestation. An inspection also allows us to identify the affected areas and the extent of the damage caused. Then, based on the results obtained from the inspection, we develop a remediation procedure tailored specifically to your infestation problem. 

Our mould remediation process

Mould remediation usually involves inspection, cleaning, and content restoration. It aims to restore mould levels to their natural and standard levels. At Irwin Asbestos Management, we take crucial steps to ensure that our mould remediation yields the result desired by our clients. In addition, our experts are licensed, trained, experienced, and certified. We guarantee that our methods are safe for both the workers and homeowners. Our team of experts will be well suited with personal protective equipment and adhere strictly to the health and safety regulations while carrying out the remediation process.

Our professional mould remediation process involves the following:

Mould inspection 

Mould containment 

This process involves the containment or isolation of the contaminated area to prevent the tiny airborne mould spores from migrating to the unaffected parts of the infested space. Doing this allows us to restrict the mould spores and contain the infestation. Our experts will also put up containment chambers to isolate the contaminated area. 

Air filtration

Since mould spores become airborne when disturbed and become airborne, the air must also be cleaned and contained. Our experts will have negative air machines with high-efficiency particulate air filters (HEPA) running continually throughout the project. This process will remove mould spores, dust, microbial volatile organic compounds (MVOCs), and other airborne debris from the contaminated area. 

Eliminating the source of moisture or water

Our expert specialists can use a variety of tactics to prevent mould spores from spreading. We can help you address leaks and water seepage, repair water-damaged areas and ventilate and dehumidify any wet areas in your home.

We also offer a variety of ways to reduce the damp conditions that mould thrives in, from keeping moisture from entering your house through poorly insulated windows and floors to patching and waterproofing any cracks or holes in the walls of your kitchen and bathroom.

Mould cleaning and removal

In this step, our experts use cleaning products like antifungal, antimicrobial, and other approved biocide to clean the affected area or surfaces. We can carry out carpet cleaning and equally clean other redeemable pieces of furniture contaminated with mould growth. If there are items beyond restoration, we will seal them up in bags and dispose of them in an approved dumpsite.

Content restoration 

Depending on how severe the infestation is, there might be a need to replace the contents and items in the contaminated space. You might need to:

  • Install new subfloors, drywall, or wallpaper,
  • Repaint the affected area or surface,
  • Install new carpets, or 
  • Carry out reconstruction on the water-damaged surface of the most infested part of the space.

Furthermore, we carry out commercial and industrial professional Brisbane asbestos & mould removal. We can also assist you in getting rid of odour caused by the mould infestation and equally deodorise your entire space.
