Mould Removal

Our IICRC certified technicians have treated, managed and provided mould removal services on many properties and homes in New Zealand.

We remove all toxic moulds, including black mould (stachybotrys) and many other harmful mould types.

Water leaks, flooding in the home, poor ventilation, lack of insulation, humid environment, plumbing failures and substandard building techniques are just some causes of mould growth.

The health impacts of exposure to mould in New Zealand includes respiratory infections, allergic responses, headaches, fatigue, and sore throats. Mould contamination can be a debilitating health hazard.

These health impacts can result in buildings becoming uninhabitable and requiring expensive remediation if not dealt with in a timely manner.

The presence of mould is not always obvious an may exist behind wall linings, under flooring and in roof spaces for some time.

The mould contamination may only become evident when the spores penetrate surfaces and when mould growth and discolouration patches are noticed.

Our Process

Mould Removal Process

 

  • The process of our mould removal services consists of a mist spray of our environmentally friendly non-toxic or hazardous mould removal agent.

 

  • This chemical contains natural ingredients and is a hospital-grade disinfectant. The chemical is completely safe for those that suffer from allergies and asthma and will kill mould at the spore and has a reaction which will help to prevent mould from growing on any surfaces it is applied to.

 

  • HEPA vacuums are used to extract mould spores from all soft furnishings, floors, and carpets. 99.5% of airborne mould spores and bacteria are captured when operating our air purifiers.

 

  • This is an essential part of the mould removal process as we are capturing the mould spores not just killing them. Dead mould spores are just as toxic as live mould spores and they are a food source for mould spores.
