On Wednesday, April 4, 2012, service technicians from All Aces Services attended a mould removal job which was located in the Glasshouse Mountains for the Sunshine Coast Council. Our reason for attending this particular job site was to clean two storage containers which had been infested with microbial growth. All Aces Services technicians proceeded to kill the microbial growth, or mould with the following procedure.
Mould Removal Procedures
Our technicians gernied both containers, removed all of the furniture which was in them, and applied a micro-ban solution to the microbial growth. We made sure to wipe down all of the hard surfaces with this micro ban solution. All of the furniture was then placed carefully back into the storage containers. This procedure ensured that we had safely and effectively removed the microbial growth.
Although some may be unaware, this type of microbial growth, or mould can cause many dangerous health conditions. Some types of mould can cause one or more of the following:
- Cancer (long term)
- Immune System Deficiencies
- Organ Damage
- Bronchial Constriction (similar to an asthma attack, but not)
- Internal Bleeding
- Skin Disease
- Gastrointestinal disease
Have you ever wondered what causes mould in the first place? There are several factors which can contribute to the growth of mould. It is often a serious issue after any disaster, especially is there is water damage involved. If it is not taken care of and removed quickly, it can cause one or more of the previous health care issues. These all have a hand in causing or creating mould:
- Starter spore colony
- Nutrient source
- Humidity which is above forty five percent
- Temperature of twenty to thirty degrees Celsius
- Poor or no lighting
The weather and conditions in Queensland, and particularly the Sunshine Coast are ideal for mould growth. It’s important to treat areas in your property for mould removal as soon as you notice any microbial growth. Call All Aces Services on 1800 00 10 10 for more information.
