Unfortunately most people are unaware of the dangers of mould, often leaving it to progress over a number of years. It’s important that you book professional mould cleaning of your home or business as soon as you begin to notice the first signs of growth. The majority of people believe that they can just use bleach or chlorine based products to kill mould. It has been proven that bleach DOES NOT kill mould at all. In actual fact bleach only bleaches the melanin (colour) out of the mould which, is a purely aesthetic fix to a much deeper problem. In fact, many people that have used bleach to treat mould have had reoccurring mould problems because the bleach actually excites the surface and the mould eventually expands even bigger than it was originally.
Let’s say that bleach actually could kill mould, then what about the airborne mould spores that have been released which release mycotoxins. This is the off-gassing that is affecting your health. At Disaster Restorations Australia we have a system to kill all airborne mould spores and it’s called “fogging”. This is done by releasing a micro mist (cloud) which, kills all airborne mould spores and bacteria. Our non-toxic and non-hazardous anti-microbial chemical will also provide a residual coating to help prevent further mould growth. Obviously this treatment will only work providing all food sources such as moisture and high humidity have been rectified.

Mould – Further Information
Mould reproduces by means of tiny spores, which are invisible to the naked eye and float through the air we breathe. Mould can often start growing indoors when the spores land on surfaces that are wet. There are many different types of mould, and none of them will grow without water or moisture.
How Mould Can Affect Your Health:
Moulds have the potential to cause a multitude of health problems by their ability to produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances. Inhaling or touching mould or mould spores may cause allergic reactions in certain people. These reactions can be immediate or delayed. Moulds can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mould. In addition, mould exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mould-allergic and non-allergic people.
