When To Call Dunrite Decon For Mould Treatments

Knowing when to call a professional for mould growth is essential to address the issue effectively and prevent further damage. Here are some signs that indicate it’s time to hire a professional mould remediation company:

  • Extensive Mould Growth: If the mould covers a large area (typically more than 10 square feet), it’s best to seek professional help. Attempting to clean up extensive mould growth without proper equipment and expertise can pose health risks and may spread mould spores to other areas of the home.
  • Hidden Mould: Mould can often grow in hidden or hard-to-reach areas, such as behind walls, under flooring, or inside ductwork. If you suspect mould growth but cannot locate the source, a professional mould inspection can help identify hidden mould and determine the extent of the infestation.
  • Persistent Mould Odour: A musty or earthy odour is often associated with mould growth. If you notice a persistent mould odour in your home, even after a thorough cleaning, it may indicate hidden mould growth. A professional mould remediation company can conduct a thorough inspection to identify and eliminate the source of the odour.
  • Health Symptoms: Exposure to mould can cause a range of health symptoms, including respiratory issues, allergies, and skin irritation. If you or your family members experience unexplained health symptoms that worsen when indoors, it’s important to have your home inspected for mould by a professional like Dunrite Decon.
  • Water Damage: Mould thrives in damp and humid environments, making areas affected by water damage particularly susceptible to mould growth. If your home has experienced water damage from flooding, leaks, or plumbing issues, it’s crucial to address the moisture problem promptly and enlist the help of a professional mould remediation company to prevent mould growth.
  • Recurring Mould Growth: If mould growth keeps recurring despite your efforts to clean it, it’s a sign of underlying moisture issues that need to be addressed. A professional mould remediation company can identify the root cause of the recurring mould growth and implement effective solutions to prevent it from coming back.
  • Structural Damage: Mould can cause structural damage to building materials over time if left untreated. If you notice signs of mould-related damage, such as warped walls, crumbling drywall, or deteriorating wood, it’s important to consult with a professional mould remediation company to assess the extent of the damage and develop a remediation plan.

Overall, if you’re unsure about the extent of mould growth in your home or if you’re unable to effectively address the issue on your own, it’s best to contact a professional mould remediation company. At Dunrite Decon, we have the expertise, equipment, and experience to safely and effectively remediate mould growth and restore a healthy indoor environment.
