Black mould and its causes

All the buildings, new and old, are at potential risk of having Black Mould. It is caused by excess moisture in the homes due to condensation and other types of damp, including penetrating in combination with lack of proper air ventilation, moisture in the air, or leaks. 

However, the most common cause of black mould is the way we live within our buildings. Modern habitation lifestyles generate many water vapours via chores such as cooking, boiling kettles, and cooking. When these vapours come in contact with a colder surface, they get condensed and leave drops of water on windows, ceilings, walls, and any colder place. The wall paint, wallpaper, or any other organic material will start to feel damp and rot over time and create perfect atmospheric conditions for mould to grow. If black mould spores happen to be floating in the air or dust, they will rest on the moisture and germinate. 

Lack of sufficient air ventilation in the property further aggravate such conditions. Without a source of circulating dry and clean fresh air around the property, water vapour gets trapped inside and leads to creating a damp, stagnant, and stale atmosphere in which black mould thrives.

Signs of black mould

How to spot mould

 With a very distinctive appearance, black mould is easy to identify. When actively germinating, it is dark green or black in colour and slimy in texture. Black mould appears powdery and dry in its inactive state. It is important to keep in mind that in either state, black mould can cause problems. 

Unfortunately, black mould is not visible immediately as it hides behind the hard to see spots, including behind wallpapers, in the loft, under floorboards, and behind walls. Therefore, at times, it requires a high level of vigilance to spot black mould. 

Here are some tattletale signs of black mould in your home:

  • Unappealing damp, musty smell
  • The visible sight of mould appearing on your ceiling, window sills, or walls
  • Allergic symptoms like coughing
  • The appearance of skin allergies such as rashes when they over welcome their stay 

Our mould and damp removal specialists are trained and experienced to identify the signs of black mould and suggest a different option to get rid of them.

Mould control tips and advice

You can easily remove the mould in the short term with DIY mould killers, but the issues lie with the low strength ingredients and the source of the problem having not been solved. So first, sterilise the area affected by black mould before you start the removal. Then follow these steps:

  • Spray the black mould treatment product onto the affected area
  • Rub the black mould removal spray from the surface using the sponge
  • Take 30 minutes to let the treatment take full effect. If it’s still visible, repeat the process until it gets completely disappeared. 

We recommend using our anti-condensation paint after completing treatment to maintain the surface temperature on the walls. 

Without the correct treatment, mould will spread extremely quickly and wear away at parts of your home. The longer mould is left untreated, the harder it becomes to remove in the future. Mould also has serious consequences on your health and respiratory system. Breathing in black mould over long periods can cause asthma and other related problems to your breathing.
