What is Mould?
Mould is a type of fungus, but the fungus that seemingly grows on your ceiling, however, is most likely the undesirable kind that may cause potential health problems for the entire household including pets.
Moulds have been known to present a health hazard to humans due to the fact that they release spores, that have been known to cause respiratory problems and allergic reactions. Asthmatic persons have been known to be susceptible to mould. Eye irritations such as itchy or watery eyes are also common. Some of these fungi produce mycotoxins which can have resulted in some people having severe neurological problems and some have even died a death after prolonged and untreated exposure to the mycotoxins. You may contact the Liverpool City Council for more info on dealing with a rented house that has mould infestation and the landlord is not willing to assist with the removal.

This is method involves using paint that is specially formulated to deter the growth of mildews and moulds. This type of paint insulates the wall, helps to reduce condensation, and raises the temperature of the surface it is applied to which reduces the amount of moisture and therefore the possibility of the fungus in your home.
Mould resistant bathroom paint
Bathrooms are, by nature a damp place due to the high levels of moisture present. There are a variety of antifungal and mould paints that are used on bathroom substrates. Antifungal paint or sealant can also be used to treat wall tiles, but bathroom walls that are painted and ceilings need antifungal bathroom paint.
Anti-mildew paint for kitchens in Liverpool
Kitchens are also rooms with very high humidity. All the steam that has been produced by cooking in the kitchen and the condensation that develops on the windows through winter provide the perfect environment for the growth of mildew and mould.
Exterior surfaces from wood to masonry can also develop mildew and fungi in your Liverpool home. An extra degree of protection against weathering, abrasion and stains, is also needed for exterior surfaces which are left exposed to the outside elements.
How to treat small mould outbreaks in Liverpool
For smaller outbreaks, we would suggest that less extreme measures be taken. One method that has had a great success rate is to expose the fungi to sunlight which would reduce the problem. Another method to curb the growth would be to improve the ventilation in the room. Household cleaners and dehumidifiers have also been proven to have a positive effect on controlling the growth of the fungi. A more radical approach will be needed for some infestations.
Mould Removal in Liverpool
The removal of the fungus in Liverpool should only be done by trained professionals due to the fact that close exposure to the spores can be very dangerous.
Liverpool Mould Control Processes
Blasting with dry ice - this method is usually used on surfaces such as cement and wood.
Soda and Media blasting – another efficient removal method and this is preferred to encapsulation which simply covers up the fungus
Vacuum - Wet vacuum cleaners can remove the fungus from hard surfaces, carpets and floors. If the mould is sufficiently wet then this method will be used otherwise the spores may be blown into the other adjoining rooms.
Damp wipe - this form of treatment in Liverpool uses a scrubbing or wiping off of the fungus from non-porous surfaces. To prevent regrowth a fungicide is then applied.
HEPA vacuum - these high-efficiency air vacuum cleaners are used for clean-up sessions after other methods of removal have been implemented. All collected debris and dust are to be stored in impervious bags to prevent the release of the spores.

The effects of exposure will vary from individual to individual. Those that are susceptible to this fungus are children and babies, the elderly, those with existing skin problems, (eczema), those with respiratory problems, (allergies, asthma) and those with a weakened immune system.
The most common fungi that are found in homes in Liverpool are:
Alternaria – Usually found under leaky sinks or in showers.
Black mould in Liverpool– usually found in rooms exposed to moisture such as bathrooms and. This is usually mistaken for dirt.
Aspergillus – grows on powdery food items (for example flour), dust, and on building materials such as drywall.
Cladosporium – usually found on wood surfaces and fabrics.
Penicillium – It’s the fuzzy blue texture we see when food has begun to spoil.
This fungus is an unpleasant site that many residents of Liverpool have had to deal with from time to time and unfortunately, many residents are not aware of the effect it can have on their health and body. The fungus will keep spreading unless it is dealt with and removed in a timely and effective manner.
What Is Condensation and How is it Formed?
The air always contains moisture, even though you cannot see it. If the air begins to become cold, it is unable to contain all the moisture that is produced by daily activities which will then cause the moisture to appear as tiny water droplets, that is usually noticed on windows, mirrors or smooth surfaces on a cold morning. This is called condensation.
It can also be seen on windows and mirrors when you have a shower or bath and on cold surfaces such as cold walls, floor and wall tiles.
Condensation occurs in cold weather, even dry weather conditions. It does not always leave a ’tidemark’ on wallpapers, walls or around its edges. If there are signs of ’tidemark’, then the damp might be caused from something else, such as loose roof tiles, water leaking into your home due to faulty plumbing from a plumbing fault or rising damp. Condensation can appear in corners, on or near to windows, behind or inside cupboards and wardrobes. Areas, where there is little movement of air, is conducive for condensation.
The four main factors that cause condensation in Liverpool are:
- Excessive Moisture Being Produced In The Building
- Inadequate Ventilation
- Surfaces that are Cold
- The Temperature Of The Building
Problems that can be caused by excessive condensation in Liverpool
Dampness caused by too much condensation can lead to mould growth on furniture and walls, mildew on fabrics. Dampness can also cause the rotting of wooden window frames. Damp humid conditions are ideal for the spread of house dust mites.
Steps to take against condensation
You will need to take proper steps to deal with condensation in your Liverpool home, Here are some simple things you should try to do as soon as possible.
Dry your windowsills and windows
Every morning you should dry your windowsills and windows. Don’t forget to also dry the surfaces
in the bathroom or kitchen that has become wet. It is best to wring out the cloth rather than hanging it to dry on a radiator.
Steps to take against mould growth in Liverpool
First, treat the fungus already in the building. Next, deal with the condensation problem to prevent it from reappearing.
A Health and Safety Executive (HSE) fungicidal wash should be used to wipe down window frames and walls to remove and kill the mould.
Mildewed clothes should be dry-cleaned, and have shampoo the carpets. Do not use a vacuum cleaner or brush to remove fungus as this will cause it to spread to other rooms. After treatment is completed then redecorate the room using fungicidal paint that has good qualities. Fungicidal resistant wallpaper paste should be used if you are applying wallpaper on the walls.
Did you know that the effect of anti-condensation or fungicidal paint is destroyed if it is covered with ordinary paint or wallpaper? But don’t forget that the only proven lasting cure for extreme mould is to get rid of dampness in the building.
- We suggest keeping the pan lids on when cooking. Once the water has boiled, turn the heat down and try to use the least amount of water for cooking your vegetables.
- If you are using a tumble drier, we suggest that you use the units that are vented outside to reduce condensation inside the drier room, or that it is of the new condensing type.
- When filling your bathtub, it’s best to run the cold water first and then run the hot water- This will reduce the steam produced by almost 90%, as steam contributes to condensation.
