If it can be proven that a tenant has failed to take precautions or preventative measures to inhibit mould growth in a rental property, then they can be held responsible. 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.
There are hundreds of DIY remedies available to try to get rid of mould in your home. But these only provide a temporary solution, allowing the mould to return again. Mould patches any bigger than the size of your hand will need professional removal. If not, the mould will continue to spread around the home, eating its way through furniture, belongings, and walls. At MouldMen, we don’t just remove the mould, we target the cause of the problem and provide informed recommendations to help prevent mould from returning after treatment.
Mould loves moisture and commonly grows in damp, poorly ventilated locations such as bathrooms, laundries, bedrooms and kitchens. If your home or office doesn’t receive natural airflow or sunlight you could be at risk of mould growing and spreading.
Tasmanian weather, particularly in Hobart and Launceston, is subject to changeable weather conditions spanning from mild and temperate in the summer to rainfall and snow in the winter. The versatile weather means we tend to close up our home and utilise our air-conditioner or heating systems. This often leads to dampness and indadequete ventilation within the property. Perfect for mould to grow and spread.
There are 1000s of mould species in existence and there are a handful of mould types commonly found in Tasmanian homes. Aspergillus, Cladosporium and Alternaria all thrive in warm, dark or damp areas such as bathrooms, window frames and air-conditioning units. Stachybotrys Chartarum or toxic black mould is another common mould species that can grow and spread.
Regular airflow, adequate ventilation and keeping areas dry around the home is the best way to stop mould in its tracks and prevent it from spreading.
Yes, but not for long. When we treat your property we only need you to vacate the property for the duration of treatment and for 3 hours afterwards.
