Professional black & toxic mould removal services
Mould is internationally recognised as a potential health hazard and the risk may be assessed from exposure time, quantity and genus (species). The UK is now recognised as having the most asthma sufferers in the world and almost 50% of UK properties have mould in some form or other, usually hidden in voids and stud partitions or behind wallpaper or surface finishes.
While “Black” mould is often regarded as toxic, the reality is that most moulds are allergenic and some “Black moulds” can often be white, green or blue. The colour, or visible quantity may bear absolutely no relationship to the risk and only analysis will confirm both.
Killing mould will result in toxins being released from ruptured or dried out spores. Internationally accepted protocols dictate mould removal in preference to killing or blocking.
Dead mould is recognised as potentially more allergenic and toxic than live mould.
The most significant factors in mould growth within the built environment are:
- Where is the moisture coming from which promotes growth?
- Can we control or eliminate this moisture?
These two factors must be addressed prior to any decontamination as further growth is inevitable.
Following the identification of cause and remediation or control of moisture, we can provide the removal and safe decontamination of mould.
What we provide:
- Moisture investigation to identify the moisture source
- Analysis of the mould both viable and non viable
