About Mould Busters
Mould is very dangerous and can be fatal. It causes allergies and asthma mostly to people with low immune systems. Most people are unaware of the dangers of mould. Since 2004 Mould has been classed as a Category 1 risk to health as assessed under the Health and Safety Hazards Rating System (HHSRS). Landlords, councils and housing associations are legally bound to clear any outbreak under section 11 of the Landlord and Tenant Act, 1998..
Many residential and commercial properties contain mould issues due to faults or defects that over time have created environments conducive to mould growth. The risks associated with these mould issues cannot be underestimated. A quick and easy solution may be all that is required, but to gain true peace of mind when you encounter mould or other signs of leakage it is best to get your property visually inspected by a building surveyor and have any mould samples examined by a microbiologist. Then, if necessary, get the property fully inspected so an effective repair solution can be established.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What makes your mould eradication treatment different from others claiming to be able to remove the mould problem?.
A: We diagnose why you have the problem so that the mould can be completely eradicated and not return. We will kill and remove the mould growth using the correct treatment procedure.
Q: Is the mould eradication treatment expensive?
A: Our treatment is very cost effective because it is approved and works! Why waste your money on redecoration costs, only for the mould to return and make your property inhabitable.
Q: Will the mould return?
A: If you take steps to reduce the condensation in your property and take action on our recommendations the mould should not return. Mould growth is a symptom of a cause, lack of air circulation, high humidity, water leaks and flooding are common causes of mould contamination, if the cause is not rectified the mould may return. Reducing condensation in a property can be achieved with very little financial outlay, and simple lifestyle changes.
Q : Are the chemicals used in the treatment harmful to my family?
A: No the chemicals are not harmful to you or your property, all the chemicals have approval and are designed for the purpose, but we do request that you refrain from entering the work area whilst we are applying them as respiratory equipment and full personal protection must be worn by the technician while the application is in progress.
Q: How long does the process take?
A: That obviously depends on how much of the property has been contaminated and what is required to eradicate it.
Q: Do we have to vacate the property whilst the treatment is being carried out?
A: In a standard eradication treatment you do not have to vacate the property, however we do advise to leave the door shut and leave a window open for 3 to 4 hours.
These chemicals have a residual effect and will continue to protect the surface for up to 6 months after one application. This product will kill (not just bleach) mould spores, preventing fungus from returning.
