A recent study (2023) found that more than a fifth of UK homes suffer from mould problems. Whether that's due to excess moisture, poor ventilation, or poor air quality isn't explored in the report, but the fact remains: the UK has a mould problem, and it needs to be fixed.
And the best way to get rid of mould for good is with a professional mould cleaning service that can not only remove mould, but also prevent mould from returning so long as you let fresh air circulate around your property regularly, provide adequate ventilation, and deal with the underlying issues behind your damp walls and ceilings.
But more on that later.
For now, you simply need to know that the Cleanup Team is adept at dealing with damp problems, and we're more than capable of removing those damp stains and mould growth to make your home safe for you and your loved ones again.
If you have mould issues and need help cleaning and treating the affected area, then read on below.
With our techniques, we're able to get rid of black mould, mould spores, and other toxic mould types to leave your surface mould free and really deal with issues of penetrating damp at the source, to prevent mould from returning quickly.
But what do we do on site to treat your internal doors, internal walls, and ceilings, to treat black mould and other mould issues?
Removing mould of all kinds requires a similar process.
Mild outbreaks of mould are much easier to treat than severe issues. As are mould issues on non-porous surfaces like tile grout, tiles, and window sills. Porous surfaces such as painted surfaces and walls need to use products that will penetrate deep into the porous materials to kill mould at its source.
Deciding the best method for each mould type and surface type can be tricky. But our team are all trained in the latest mould killing techniques, so they will be able to get rid of mould in any circumstance.
When we remove mould - black mould, green, whichever mould we come across really - there's a chance that it may release mould spores into the atmosphere. These are like toxic fumes that can be breathed in and cause health problems.
That's why we ALWAYS tackle dangerous spores whenever we remove mould at a property.
To do this, you need specialist equipment, because spores are invisible to the human eye. Here, we use our spore testing kits to check if there are spores in the air. Once we've determined that there is a risk of toxic mould airborne spores, we then get rid of mould from the air.
We do this by simply using an air filter, but one that's specifically designed to filter toxic mould airborne spores from the air, leaving the rest clean and safe to breathe.
After we filter the air in every affected room, we then take another air sample kit and test for spores again. We will never leave your property with spores still in the air.
Your safety, and the safety of your loved ones, are our priority!
Once fully clean, we'll provide you with a record of our work detailing everything we have done to make your home clean and safe again, and we'll report any findings about what's causing mould in your home, so you can take action to fix it as soon as possible.
Using a mould spray, mild detergent, soda, vinegar, bleach, tea tree oil, baking soda, natural disinfectant, a damp soft cloth and elbow grease (wow, that's a LOT) will clean mould from the surface of your walls. No question about it.
But do you know what else it will do?
It will release toxic spores into the atmosphere that you and your family will breathe in. It also won't be killed, meaning it will grow back in no time at all.
Cleaning mould yourself at home will remove mould from the surface, but it won't tackle your problem.
In fact, it can make things worse.
So, no, you shouldn't tackle mould issues alone. ALWAYS call the professionals.
A mould cleaning service with professionals is essential when you want to get rid of mould effectively from your home. It's the only way to make sure the mould is killed and won't immediately regrow again.
But more than just the effectiveness, you need to keep yourself and your family safe, and cleaning mould is dangerous.
Thankfully, all our cleaners are trained to the highest standards, meaning they know how to deal with mould issues, quickly, effectively, and most importantly, safely.
You should trust the Cleanup Team, because we know what we're doing and we put your safety first.
If you have a mould problem at home, then make sure you contact the Cleanup Team today. Call or fill out the contact form, and we'll provide you with a quote as soon as we can.
If you're then happy to go ahead, then simply sit back and relax. We'll take care of the rest!
No, mould does not go away naturally. It requires removal and treatment to eliminate it completely.
Yes, mould can come back after cleaning if the source of moisture is not addressed.
Dehumidifiers can help prevent mould growth by reducing the amount of moisture in the air, but they will not remove existing mould.
To stop mould from coming back, it is important to address the source of moisture and humidity, as well as to properly clean and treat the affected area to eliminate any remaining mould spores. Implementing good ventilation and maintenance practices can also help prevent future mould growth.
