How to get rid of mould for good

Remove all traces of the mould

Although it is tempting to wipe down surfaces with off-the-shelf cleaning products, you must not attempt to remediate mould yourself.

Mould releases allergens, irritants, and toxins which can cause an allergic reaction and other health problems when you are exposed to it. When you scrub at the spores, you release them up into the air and are likely to inhale them.

You also will only be removing the visible, surface spores. Some mould could be left behind, and continue to grow and spread on your property.

Professional cleaners have the products and equipment – including personal protective equipment – to remove the mould safely and thoroughly. They will know where else it is likely to be in your property, like in vents or behind wardrobes, and can tackle your entire mould problem.

They should help you identify the root cause, too, like a leaky pipe or roof, and advise on how to prevent mould in your property.

ICE Cleaning’s professional mould remediation service comes with a 24-month guarantee* so you can be sure it will not return in the long run.

MUH - How to Deep-Clean Your Home

Put in place preventative measures

Mould grows in humid, damp, and poorly ventilated conditions. There are lots of small, simple things you can do to ensure your property does not tick any of these boxes.

  • Use air conditioners and dehumidifiers to keep the humidity below 50%, or make sure the property is ventilated to get rid of any humid air.
  • Regularly open windows to bring in the fresh air. This is especially important in humid, steamy rooms like bathrooms and kitchens. Install fans and open windows after cooking or showering to remove any humidity.
  • Bring in professional cleaners to clean up and dry your home as soon as possible after a flood. Mould can start to grow in as little as 24 to 48 hours.
  • Check for signs of mould in your carpets regularly. Mould thrives in carpets and might spread without you noticing.
