Frequently Asked Questions
If you or one of your tenants has found mould, chances are you have a few questions. Here are some we hear every day.
If a tenant fails to take precautions or preventative measures to inhibit mould growth in a rental property, then they will likely responsible for remediating mould damage. This may include not allowing natural light or airflow throughout the property or failure to inform the landlord of water damage or ongoing leaks.
On the other hand, if the landlord has not fulfilled their landlord obligations that has led to an inhabitable premises, then they are responsible. This may include failing to repair leaks or water damage, failure to clean the premises before a tenant moves in or a failure to repair rising damp.
Yes, but not for long. When we treat the property we only need tenants to vacate the property for the duration of treatment and for three hours afterwards. No need to worry about finding somewhere to stay overnight. This is because we use a non-irritant, water-soluble misting treatment to remove up to 99.99% mould spores and odours. It’s food, kid, pet and plant safe and naturally biodegrades completely after 48 hours.
As a natural part of our ecosystem that feeds off moisture, it is almost impossible to permanently remove mould from the home. In saying this, the best way to minimise mould growth is to keep all areas of the house dry, ensure regular airflow throughout the home and clean any spills or water damage promptly.
Understandably, there is no set price for mould removal. Every property is different when it comes to the severity and type of mould, to the equipment required for effective remediation. Luckily, our free inspection process ensures that you receive a detailed findings report outlining everything you need to know about the extent and cost of remediation before we get started. No need to worry about hidden add-ons – we’ll give you transparent findings backed by a fair price.
Either way, the cost of leaving the mould to grow and spread around the property is far greater than having it addressed. Tenant disputes, broken leases and vacant properties are all risks that can be avoided if mould is treated accordingly.
