What Kills Mould? Mould on Ceiling, Furniture, and More 

Mould can grow anywhere at anytime! The main question of today is the question-How is mould killed? While the short answer is that mould can be killed through a number of methods, chemicals, and materials, its spores and roots are not always so easily eliminated. 

Some factors which determine the difficulty of killing mould are: 

-The surface it’s growing on. 

-How long it has been growing. 

-The room provides a sustainable environment for mould to continue growing. 

Let’s break this down. When mould cleaners generally come into an effected area, they will analyse the extent at which mould has spread. If mould is let to grow rapidly, mould cleaning can become a much more difficult task than initially anticipated. When dealing with mould removals, it’s important to know what type of surface it has latched itself onto. If the surface it has found is porous, you may require more than just a simple scrubbing solution. When mould finds a porous material to grow on, it can extend its roots out and find gaps to latch itself onto, so even when its top portion may be “killed” or wiped away, the roots will continue to allow for future mould growth. 

Depending on how long the mould has been on its surface also determines how it should be removed. Most mould cleaners will remove mould with extra care as it can corrode a material that it has been laying on for a while. This type of mould needs to be killed with chemicals that do not harm your items, or materials in the process and may require several treatments before it’s fully removed. 

As mould can grow nearly anywhere, this can make using the right tools difficult for its removal. While some surfaces such as walls can be easy to reach with a scrubber and chemical solutions, other surfaces such on ceilings can cause quite the hassle for its removal. To remove mould on ceiling, mould cleaners may have to use foggers, ladders and other specialised equipment to ensure mould on ceiling residue and traces are completely removed. At AllAces, our focus is to reach all the hardest areas with our professional mould removal Sydney and Brisbane services. We make sure to remediate these hard-to-reach areas through the use of a special machine called a hydroxyl generator. As mould spores and residue are microscopic, we chose a natural particle that has the capacity to eliminate these spores. Hydroxyls are known to reach even the tightest cracks and crevices otherwise unreachable, even dealing with all the mould on ceiling problems you can imagine.

As mentioned, the answer to killing mould can come with multiple techniques, so there really is no one answer solution. Our focus is to use the best method for the correct time to truly optimise your end results.
