What to do if you find Mould in your home
Before anyone can give you advice on a mould problem, the severity of the problem has to be established. The first thing that needs to be determined is if the suspected issue is a mould problem or something else. As a homeowner you don’t want to be put into the position of paying for expensive remediation or removal, if it is not required.
Unfortunately, the only way to be 100% certain that it is or isn’t a mould problem, is to have the area tested. This will also establish whether the size and extent of the problem. The inspection will also tell you what surfaces require remediation and whether or not the mould spores and mVOC’s are impacting the air quality within the home.
The inspection company should also provide you with the various options available for remediation. The options are determined by the size of contaminated area and the genus of mould found in the home.
Make a booking with an inspection company. They will perform the necessary mould and moisture tests and visual inspection of the property. They will also provide you with a Scope of Work (the options and protocols for mould removal).
If you are planning to have the mould cleaned professionally by a mould remediation company, the scope of work is the most important document they will provide you with.
