>>Ventilate your home
When it comes to black mould removal, there are a number of different solutions ranging from free things you can do to alleviate the problem, to DIY products and to mechanical air ventilation solutions
What is boils down to is that there are two basic things you need to do to alleviate or remove the black mould issue:
Here at Peter Cox we offer a complete black mould removal service that includes measures to guard against the return of black mould and mechanical solutions to permanently get rid of the black mould issue.
In an ideal world, the best way to tackle black spot mould is to prevent it from appearing in the first place. The stale and damp environment that black mould requires to germinate is frequently caused by the effects of excessive condensation. The reality however, is most of the time we generally have bigger issues to deal with than worrying about condensation the removal of black mould.
Prior to purchasing any products or services to, first consider what might be causing the black mould issue. Do you you have a faulty downpipe leading to penetrating damp or is it just down to how you are living within the property?
Whatever it might be, our first recommendation is that you read our guide to how to stop condensation and excess moisture prior to making any decisions. You might just save yourself a few pounds!
Firstly, it is important to note that if you do not deal with the source of the moisture issue leading to the black mould in the first instance, the likely hood of the black mould returning is very high.
If you have identified and resolve the excess moisture issue, there is effectively two routes you can choose for black mould removal.
This is using a combination of using black mould cleaners to kill and sterilise the area(s) while using innovative decorating solutions such as our WarmerWall anti condensation paint that acts as a thermal barrier on walls (especially cold walls) helping to prevent water condensing on the surface. This solution however, is still reliant on lifestyle changes within the property to improve the air ventilation and thus help alleviate the amount of moisture.
For serious black mould problems, positive pressure ventilation systems or heat recovery systems are the way to go.
Positive Pressure ventilation is the ultimate black mould killer and perfect for a whole house solution. Designed to improve air quality and ventilation within a property, it works by drawing in damp air and drying and generally heating that air prior to pushing it back out into the property. The result is that the fresh dry air eventually pushing out all the damp, stagnant air leaving the property healthy. You can generally see the effects of positive pressure after about 4-6 weeks where the black mould will start to turn dry and dusty as the moisture has been drawn away.
Heat recovery systems to a certain degree work in a similar way to positive pressure systems however, they are more idea is high humidity environments such as bathrooms and kitchens. Similar to positive pressure ventilation, the heat recovery units draws in damp air where it effectively dries the air prior to then pushing it back into the property.
