The best way to learn how to remove mould in the ceiling is though a practical case study as below:
The Mould Problem
In this property, mould was forming on the windows as well as the air conditioning unit. The ceiling void area had a very high airborne mould and surface count caused by no ventilation and high humidity. This created a contamination risk leaking into the bedrooms.
How we removed the Mould
To remedy the situation, we first we had to set up containment barriers as well as HEPA filtration units to filter the air. After that, we started the cleaning process.
We follow the IICRC s520 standards, this involves the disposal of affected porous source materials such as the plaster board. We then HEPA vacuumed the surfaces which includes all timber and remaining plasterboard. This was followed up by wiping the surface with a microfibre cloth and mould cleaning solution as well as a complete decontamination of the air conditioning unit.
During the process we used HEPA filtered air exchangers to filter the mould spores out of the air. An electric leaf blower was used to ensure the settled mould spores were also flushed out. Finally, we did a knockdown treatment using this unit to kill the remaining mould spores. A post mould remediation test was completed which confirmed the property has been brought back to normal mould ecology.
