Mould is a fungal organism that has been responsible for damages to several properties in Brent. It spreads quickly from one area to the next as its spores (The spores are minute structures produced for reproduction purposes) become airborne. The fungus is identified by the presence of stains, green or black splotches, moist surfaces and a musty odour. Upper respiratory complications, severe asthmatic problems and allergy irritations, have been linked to this fungus.

How do you remove mould in Brent?
Step 1 - Inspection – Our contractors will search your property for visible growth, invisible spores and use humidity meters to measure the moisture levels. Once we have analysed your property we will then be able to determine the correct process that is needed to be taken in order to completely remove the fungus and prevent its return into the property.
Step 2 - Correction – We will stop the source of direct moisture (leaking pipes, subfloor water seepage, leaking gutters, leaking ceiling, etc.) No two outbreaks are the same so each removal will be based on the type of outbreak in the building.
Step 3 - Removal – Depending on the type of outbreak we may start with a mist spray of our non-toxic, non-hazardous mould removal agent along with using air purifiers to capture airborne spores.
Step 4 - Drying Process – We will use dehumidifiers throughout the entire home to ensure that the building structures are dried properly.
Step 5 - Prevention – To ensure that the fungus does not return, the original root source of the outbreak must be rectified. We will advise you on the prevention process that should be done.

If the outbreak is severe and you think that it is affecting your family's health then please contact us immediately.
Dealing with condensation and mould
Some types of damp are caused by condensation. This can lead to a growth of tiny black dots known as mould.
Condensation occurs when the air that is moist comes into direct contact with a colder surface such as a window, mirror, wall etc. Tiny droplets of water will eventually appear due to the fact that the air cannot hold the moisture. It also occurs in areas behind furniture or the corners of the rooms has air that is still, then the fungus will also be formed.
- We suggest that during the winter season, you try to keep the temperature above 18 degrees.
- The fungus does not grow on surfaces that are dry so it’s really important for you to remind your family members to wipe off as soon as possible any condensation from your walls, windows, every surface or mirrors every morning to help prevent the fungus from growing.
- Keep doors closed when cooking or taking a shower/bath it’s best to keep the doors closed to prevent the excess moisture from going into the adjoining rooms.
- To stop condensation from forming after taking a bath we suggest that you keep the bathroom windows open and if you have an extractor fan, then turn it on as this will remove the excess moisture that is in the air.
- Drying your clothes inside will increase the moisture inside the room, so it is best to dry clothes outside if you can. If you are not able to dry them outside then, put them in a closed room with the windows open.
- If you use a tumble dryer to dry your clothes then make sure that the ventilation extraction pipe is running to the outside your building.
