We use a two-part process to eliminate all mould and mould spores. To start we remove by hand all visible mould from contaminated surfaces. This includes ceilings, walls, cornices, windows and doors. How We Do It
All airborne mould spores must be eliminated, to finish the process. We use a safe method called fogging. Then we apply our unique chemical throughout the building using an electronic ULV cold-fogging machine. This leaves your property in a mould neutral state.How We Do It
The process eliminates 99.998% of all mould spores and odours related to mould. Within 48 hours the MouldMen chemical bio-degrades. 3 hours after treatment has been completed, it is safe for occupants to re-enter the premises .
Mould grows inside a property when a combination of moisture and poor ventilation gives the spores the perfect conditions to take hold on a surface.
Our technicians are fully trained to inspect, assess and advise on what is required to remove mould from your property. As some strains of mould can be a health hazard, testing can be required. We conduct air and surface sampling which is then analysed by a fully accredited laboratory. These samples can provide mould spore counts and mould genus breakdown. This is very important where no visible mould is found but a smell persists.How We Do It
Frequently Asked Questions

What chemicals do you use to treat the mould inside my house?
Our unique two part mould removal process uses a material safe, food safe, non-skin irritant chemical that has been proven to be safe and effective. Our product is safe, water soluble and bio-degrades within 48 hrs of application.
What types of mould can MouldMen treat?

I have heard solutions like Ozone Treatment are more effective and a safer solution?
We do not use Ozone products. Whether in its pure form or mixed with other chemicals, Ozone can be harmful to health. If inhaled, ozone can damage the lungs and relatively low amounts of ozone can cause chest pain, coughing and shortness of breath. The IICRC no longer recommend the use of ozone products and this is stated in their most recent mould remediation training programs.
Why is mould growing in my home?
There is no set season of the year where mould will grow, and it can occur all year round. When there is a combination of moisture and poor ventilation, mould will begin to form and grow on surfaces in your home. Therefore, if mould is left untreated in these conditions, it will typically begin to spread, becoming detrimental to your health and comfort of living.
Will the MouldMen mould removal treatment damage my paint?
This is a common question we get asked, and the answer is no. The MouldMen team are often told after completing a treatment that the room feels like it has had a fresh coat of paint! However, mould does decompose matter and in instances where the mould has been on a painted surface for a long time. There can be underlying damage to the quality of the paint not obvious until treatment has disrupted the surface. This is a rare occurrence as mould issues are usually dealt with early on.
What is black mould?
Black mould is one of the most common colours of indoor mould. Acting quickly is important when found in your home as certain strains of black mould can be toxic and harmful to the elderly, pregnant women, people who are immune-compromised and children.
Can you remove ceiling mould?
Mould can grow on ceilings and inside roof cavities when there is a build-up of moisture due to condensation caused by poor ventilation. We will not only treat your ceiling mould but educate you on ways that you can prevent mould from leaving its mark in your home!
