A 'whole home' condensation cure
>>Ventilate your home
Our guide to black mould removal and treatment will outline the different solutions, ranging from DIY mould cleaner products, professional black mould treatment, and ultimately to mechanical air ventilation and condensation units to prevent mould forming in your home.
These methods can be used to treat both small and large black mould problems on your walls. If you have tried to remove black mould from your home, but have found that condensation and signs of black mould remain, then contact our team for more specialist help and advice.
There are two basic things you need to do to treat black mould problems.
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. Read more about how to remove black mould below.
Apply the black mould cleaner to the affected area and leave it to take effect for 30 minutes. Wipe down and sterilise the walls to neutralise the chemical treatment, leaving the surfaces completely harmless.
Treat the area with an additive that will act to reduce the re-emergence of mould and fungus on the wall.
Implement our help and advice on how to keep the area well ventilated to prevent the buildup of moisture.
Our professional surveyors will be able to assist with advice regarding the best mechanical air ventilation solution for you while also advising on what else you might want to do to help improve the area such as using anti condensation paints.
For serious and persistent 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 suited to high humidity environments such as bathrooms and kitchens. Similar to positive pressure ventilation, the heat recovery units draw in damp air where it effectively dries the air prior to then pushing it back into the property.
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.
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!
