Owning property in the current market has seen major benefits over the last two years, however, the upkeep and consistency of property value can lead to numerous pitfalls. Mould and mould removal has been a major concern for many tenants and prospective buyers in recent times with the World Health Organisation estimating that fifty per cent of Australian homes will be experiencing mould. Not to mention the health risks if left untreated. Mould removal and prevention is therefore an important issue for all property managers to familiarise themselves with.
Mould is a type of fungus that grows in damp and humid environments. Mould reproduces by producing spores, which can be carried through the air and can land on surfaces where they can grow and multiply.
Mould can grow on a variety of surfaces, including walls, ceilings, carpets, and other organic materials. It thrives in environments with high moisture levels, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and basements, as well as in areas that have been affected by water damage or flooding.
Mould growth can be harmful to human health, particularly for people with allergies or respiratory conditions. Mould exposure can cause symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, and nasal congestion. In some cases, it can also cause more serious health problems, such as asthma attacks and infections in people with weakened immune systems.
Mould growth can cause a variety of structural damage, depending on where it grows and how long it is left untreated. Common structural damage caused by mould includes the weakening of building materials, discolouration and staining, and the deterioration of paint and wallpaper. Serve damage can lead to the weakening of structural integrity when mould growth is found on load-bearing walls. Electrical damage can also produce major risks with damage to wiring or electrical components creating a fire hazard.
As you can imagine, structural damages can be extremely costly when mould growth goes unnoticed or is left to spread. These costs can easily end up being thousands of dollars. As well as the long wait times associated with construction and third-party intervention. Calling in professional mould cleaners early can stop these costs from soaring and provides you with the opportunity to act quickly when it comes to mould removal.
