What are moulds?
The common term is microorganism fungi. There are a few thousand different types that have been discovered, and many are still unidentified. The known species exceed hundreds of thousands and new species of fungi are being discovered all the time.
The spores which are produced by the mould are capable of surviving in harsh conditions not normally suitable for their growth. Any toxic substance produced by the fungi is called mycotoxin.
Health Issues of mould exposure in your Croydon home
Exposure to the toxins has been known to produce serious health consequences. Exposure is based on:
- quantity of spores in single events
- chronic exposure of lower spore counts but over longer periods of time. If you live in a contaminated home the fact that you are living there and sleeping there may cause chronic exposure.
Why is mould a health hazard?
They are known as the earth cleaning system where it is always present and waiting to digest organic materials and dead cellulose. Majority of homes in Croydon are made of these materials in the form of plasterboard, wall paper, furniture, dust (which usually is dead skin) and clothing. Different moulds compete with each other and surrounding bacteria to live and grow and digest these dead materials. When being challenged by other organisms (including fungicides) they are then known to produce very potent toxins to fight off the competitors.
Some of their known colours are green, white & black all of which may pose a potential health risk if not remediated in an efficient and timely manner.
Mould and other fungi thrive easily in moist indoor environments. Spending too much time in these types of environments sometimes have been known to cause people to complain of headaches, respiratory effects, and other physical symptoms. In addition to being hidden or visible, damp spaces are a breeding ground for bacteria, dust mites, gasses, chemicals, gasses.

Croydon Condensation Control
Condensation is one of the most serious forms of dampness in regards to staying healthy. It can also damage wood, window frames, skirting boards, wooden floors and furnishings (causing them to rot) interior decorations and clothing.
The cause of condensation is warm, high humidity (moisture-laden air), which is unable to escape from the building. Aspergilla spp (black mould growth) will eventually appear in the corners of ceilings and walls, and behind furniture. A damp odour is sometimes noticeable in the building.
The lifestyle of the occupants has been known to be the cause of condensation. Our specialist will be able to advise you on methods of reducing moisture in the air; this may require a lifestyle change in daily activities.
It is important for you to know the source of your damp. Did you know that there is a difference between damp caused by:
This tends to get worse in cold weather.
This tends to get worse in wet weather.
This tends to get worse in wet weather. This mostly affects rooms on the ground floor and is caused by water from the ground coming into contact with the walls and floors. The cause of this can either be
- Failure of a damp proof membrane in older buildings (DPM).
- Failure of a damp proof course (DPC)
- Damp proofing was not done during the time of construction of the property.
This tends to get worse in wet weather.
Condensation will occur where there is little circulation of air and can be found on north-facing walls, near to or on windows, wardrobes, corners, in or behind the cupboards.

The mould remediation process in Croydon
- Inspection and Testing
Our team will diagnose the cause through a visual inspection and with the use of meters to test humidity and moisture.
Our technicians will give a detailed report with recommendations of realistic goals to prevent and reduce another outbreak.
- Correction Process
The removal process begins with removing and/or repairing the source that causes any form of moisture to be present such as leaking pipes, leaking roofs, leaking ceilings and subfloor water seepage.
The removal process varies depending on the severity of each case
After the removal process, our specialists will ensure that the affected area is properly dried. The drying process is very important because if the moisture remains, they will simply return. The mould treatment specialist will use dehumidifiers and air movers to dry out the building and ensure that the affected areas are completely dry.
It is time to make sure that the remediation and removal are permanent, which can only be achieved if the source of the problem has been rectified. Some of the steps that can be taken to help prevent recurrence in the future are:
- Rising damp treatments
- Draining improvements
- Fixing of water leaks
- Improving overall ventilation and airflow in the house

FAQ’s about Mould Removal in Croydon
Should I use a professional cleaning company or remove it by myself?
Mould and the spores that it produces are hazardous. If the area affected is less than 1-metre square and condensation is the cause, then you may be able to remove it by yourself. If it’s one metre squared or bigger or the result of sewage you will need to contact a professional remediation company in Croydon. If this is not dealt with effectively, completely and in a timely manner it can very quickly spread out of control presenting a serious health risk to the occupants of the house and causing costly property damage.
What are the conditions for mould to thrive in?
Conditions of excess moisture and poor ventilation, damp and especially if it is warm and humid will cause them to thrive. Its growth is not always in places that are visible to the naked eye. They can occur anywhere with excess moisture in places such as basements, under carpets, indoors or outdoors, attics, behind drywalls, ceiling tiles, paint, fabrics, wallpaper, upholstery and insulating material.
