Damp Specialists

If you notice black mould or mildew patches on any internal walls, ceilings or floors you should take action straight away by calling one of our damp specialists.

You’re more likely to suffer respiratory problems or infections if you have problems with damp and mould or mildew in your property. Moulds and mildews produce allergens and irritants and some can even produce toxins so treating damp and mould as early as possible is important for your own health.

The structural integrity of your property can be compromised if the source of damp problems is not detected and fully fixed.

Removal of mould and mildew

Although treating black mould and mildew can be done with specialist products that can be purchased from most DIY stores you should always take precautions if you’re treating it yourself. During the removal process the fungal spores can become airborne and could be inhaled. The inhalation of spores should always be avoided. You should use a facemask that’s rated for black mould spore protection, as well as wearing rubber gloves and protective eyewear.

NHS advice on damp and mould

Ventilate the room by opening windows. However, try to keep doors to other rooms closed as this will prevent spores from spreading to other parts of your property.

Lightly spray the affected area with water. This will reduce the likelihood of spores becoming airborne during removal. Use a damp cloth either with a mould killer product or a regular household detergent to clean the affected area. A gentle wiping action is best rather than a vigorous scrubbing or even brushing. It’s a good idea to disinfect the surrounding areas too and not just the area covered by the mould or mildew.

Finally, make sure the area is thoroughly dry and dispose of the cloth you’ve used in a plastic bag. Also, rinse the gloves and eyewear thoroughly before allowing them to fully dry.

Warning: Do NOT attempt to remove mould or mildew if you think it’s caused by a sewage problem, or another source of contaminated water.

If you’re unsure about how to remove mould or mildew safely call us and one of our damp specialists can do it for you.

Additional steps to prevent mould and mildew from returning

Mould and mildew grow best in dark, humid conditions. They feed on organic matter. To prevent them from returning once you’ve removed them try to let as much light into the room as possible. Regular dusting and cleaning will also help. Washing any cotton or wool products, such as sheets, blankets and cushions is advised too.
