How to Deal with Mouldy Walls and Floors

Mould is a common problem that can occur in any home. It often appears as black or green patches on walls or floors, and it can be difficult to get rid of. In this blog post, we will discuss the causes of mould and some methods for dealing with it. We will also provide some tips for preventing mould from forming in the first place.

 

Identify the mould and determine the cause

The first step in dealing with mould is to identify the source of the problem. Mould often grows due to moisture, so you will need to determine where the water is coming from. Common sources of moisture include leaks in the roof or walls, flooding, and condensation.

Once you have identified the cause of the mould, you can take steps to fix it. For example, if the mould is caused by a leak, you will need to repair the leak and dry out the affected area. If condensation is the problem, you may need to install insulation or ventilation fans to reduce humidity levels.

Repair any water damage and dry out the area

Once you have fixed the source of the moisture, you will need to repair any damage that has been caused by the mould. This may include cleaning affected surfaces and replacing damaged materials. You will also need to make sure that the area is thoroughly dry before proceeding to the next step.

Remove the mould

The next step is to remove the mould from your walls or floors. There are a number of ways to do this, but we recommend using a mixture of bleach and water. Simply mix one part bleach with three parts water and apply it to the affected area with a brush or cloth. Let it sit for about 30 minutes before scrubbing away at the mould. Once you have removed as much as possible, rinse the area with clean water.

Prevent the mould from returning

Once you have removed the mould, you will need to take steps to prevent it from coming back. This may include fixing any leaks or moisture problems, increasing ventilation, and using mould-resistant products. By taking these precautions, you can keep your home free of mould for good!

Monitor the area for further signs  of mould

Once you have dealt with the mould, you will need to monitor the area for any further signs of trouble. If you notice any new patches of mould, take steps to remove it immediately. By taking these precautions, you can keep your home healthy and free of mould!
