Mould and Fungal Treatment
Get Rid of Mould, Mildew, and Fungus Permanently
Typically, mould and fungi are found in buildings, including homes and are commonly identified by either black, brown, or grey spots on the surface of painted structures. Both thrive in damp places in a building especially on the insides of walls and ceilings exposed to a recurrent source of moisture from a plumbing or roof leakage.
Mould and fungus are also caused by poor quality painting that does not contain adequate amounts of mildewcide. The problem is also caused by application of paint over existing mould, fungus, or mildew that has not been handled properly. In addition, failure to prime bare wood prior to painting is also a major cause.
Some mould and fungus are harmless and generally have little effect on health while others have very serious effects. If you happen to have an extensive mold and fungus problem in your home, you may need to hire professionals to get rid of it.

Removal of Mould and Fungus Prior to Painting
Each exterior and interior job starts with a complete pressure washing. A light wash off on your home’s exterior walls will remove any existing mould and fungus. After cleaning, we treat all surfaces using a bleach solution to neutralise all mould and fungus present. The surfaces are then washed clean
After washing, the surfaces are left to dry. We then scrape all loose paint and then sand. We feather the edges of the peeled surface help keep the paint from peeling in future. We then apply a thick coat of top quality primer to the bare wood. Old loose caulking is removed and we re-caulk around all doors, window frames, and between sidings. This helps provide a sound painted surface and increases the durability of the painted structure.
Finally, we repaint the walls using premium grade oil-based sealer. An oil-based sealer creates a soft sheen on the painted surface, making it easier to remove the mould and fungus. We also add anti-mould and anti-fungal additives to help inhibit its growth.
