Do I Need a Rot and Mould Removal Specialist?

Mould may seem like a harmless threat, but with enough moisture, it can cause an allergic reaction and even respiratory problems in those sensitive to it. Mould forms in areas of high humidity and can be caused or worsened by a number of factors; these include faulty heating, poor ventilation, water damage, excessive condensation, or even structural defects, such as leaky roofs.

If you have noticed dark spots on the walls, a musty, earthy smell in your property or the appearance of pests such as woodlice or silverfish, it’s likely you are experiencing a mould infestation. Invisible spores spread through the air and can affect your floor, books and clothing, however, mould can be most prominent in non-visible places, including behind wallpaper or plasterboard.

To rid your home of the harmful effects of mould, you need a rot and mould removal specialist. HaMuch makes it easy to find wet rot specialists, dry rot specialists, or anything else you might need to get your home smelling of roses once again.

What Does a Rot and Mould Removal Specialist Do?

Rot and mould can be difficult to combat, especially when the infestation is severe. The duties of a rot and mould specialist include:

  • Domestic and commercial mould inspection: Taking a detailed survey analysis is an effective way to combat rot and mould growth and spread. Mould generally grows as a result of the damping effect on surfaces. This may be from leakage from pipes, baths or washing machines. A rot and mould removal specialist can conduct a survey to help detect leaks and provide a solution.
  • Wood rot treatment: Logs cut into planks for construction purposes are meant to undergo a seasoning process to reduce and prevent wet or dry rot and mould, as well as reducing incidence of woodworm. Without proper dry rot or wet rot treatment, rot and mould can grow over time. Wood rot specialists can replace rotten timber with treated timber to stop the spread of mould.
  • General domestic and commercial mould treatment: Rot and damp can affect a range of materials, such as wood, concrete and fabric. A rot and mould control specialist can treat the surface with the appropriate fungicide.
