Prevention is Best for Removing Mould from Walls

All Aces Cleaning & Restoration is the number one service provider when it comes to water damage restoration. If your home is flooded due to natural disaster or plumbing problems, we have the knowledge and experience to get the job done properly.  All of our technicians are trained with qualifications through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and can easily avoid costly jobs such as removing mould from walls.

It is so important to dry the structure and contents properly within a specific time frame otherwise it can lead to disastrous results down the track. The integrity of the building can be compromised if the drying process is not carried out quickly and effectively. Although a structure may seem dry to touch, areas not readily accessible like the concrete subfloor may still be wet and can cause problems if it is not addressed properly.

You can see from the photos below examples of what can happen if the structure is not attended to properly. Mould is toxic and can be detrimental to your health. The first photo shows an extreme case of mould that has occurred due to structural water damage. This could have easily been prevented if the property was attended to sooner.

You can see from the second photo that there is also mould apparent on the back of the gyprock walls. This may not have been visible from the outside wall, but the effects to the occupants and the structure is still the same.

The third photo shows heavy mould growth on the framework within the walls. Again, this is not visible from the outside, but the effects are still the same.

A thorough initial inspection from one of our qualified technicians would have prevented the mould growth from occurring in the first place. It would have saved the occupant time and money to have the problem addressed sooner rather than later. So next time you find yourself with water damage in your home, please give All Aces Cleaning & Restoration a call on 1800 00 10 10 to get the job done safely and effectively.
