Mould Remediation | Melbourne Forensic Cleaning
Mould exists as spores in air – it takes particular conditions – warmth and moisture to allow it to grow. In small quantities it may not be harmful, however as it continues to cover surfaces it will cause illness to those exposed to this microbial contamination. Mould Cleaning and remediation cost will vary and depend heavily on how much mould there is in your home, the kind of mould and the size of area contaminated with mould including contents.

The first stage is cleaning up mould is to determine why it is growing. Is there water damage or a moisture problem causing the mould? Until the source is determined, there is no point trying to clean the mould as it will certainly grow back until the source is discovered. Spores will spread to contents and you will have a real battle on your hands. The more mould you have and the more contents affected by mould, the more it will cost to clean and remediate. Mould testing will cost approximately $70-100 per sample and results are normally received within 3-5 working days from the lab. Air samples should always be taken when testing mould in a property, it is recommended that an indoor air-sample and an outdoor air-sample be taken to compare.
Mould spores when released become airborne and although you cannot see them in the air, they are there and you are most likely breathing them into your lungs, HEPA air-scrubbers are used to clean the air during remediation. Zip walls are also installed between rooms with a negative air system to ensure each room is cleaned without any cross contamination occurring. To have your house tested for mould, we will need to send out an advanced microbial remediation technician to take samples of the air and surfaces. The only real way to determine if you have a harmful type of mould in your home is to have it tested by a lab. Some types of mould are especially toxic and release cytoxins into the air that can cause serious respiratory problems.
