There are plenty of things that you would be able to do in order to treat mould in your home. First and foremost you must repair all pipes in your home or office.
If the area of damage is small you would easily be able to clean up the mould using water and products that are manufactured for mould removal. However, when doing this make sure that you cover your nose and mouth as some forms of mould could be harmful.
Once this is done, you must make sure that you keep that area clean and dry because mould can regrow very easily. It would be advisable to use a dehumidifier, powders or even a fan to dry up the area quickly.
In some cases no matter what you do, the mould just keeps growing again and again. If you’re willing to, you could keep the heater on the whole time in order to control the level of moisture. But, this could be expensive and therefore the next best option would be to clean up the area, dry it and then paint over it using anti-mould paints.
If the area of mould infestation is large it would be advisable to hire professionals to get the job done as it’s not going to be easy to do it all on your own. Professionals would know exactly what needs to be done and at the same time it would prevent you from coming in contact with the mould and hence chances of you falling ill are reduced.
