Mould can be both difficult and frustrating to deal with. It mostly grows in areas of the house that see a lot of humid activity, such as in the bathroom and kitchen. It is important that if you identify any signs of mould that you do not attempt to remove it yourself, as you could make the situation worse or create a risk to yourself.

Professional intervention is needed to effectively remediate mould and can significantly improve the air quality in the surrounding environment. Mould specialists use advanced technologies and solutions to treat the issue, so call in the professionals once you notice any.

Here at ICE Cleaning, we're mould removal experts. We have years of experience in the field, and are proud to hold an accreditation with Dewpoint Professional. Get in touch today to find out more - our friendly support team are here to help you with whatever you need.

Continue reading to find out how to prevent mould from developing on the walls of your property.

Keep your home heated

An important method of mould prevention is to keep your home consistently heated, especially in the winter time when conditions are colder.

This helps stop mould occurring by reducing the level of dampness and moisture within the property. Investing in insulation for the building can also help, as well as make your home more energy efficient.

Even though using heating can be expensive, you will save yourself money on any future repairs needed from mould damage. To help you monitor the temperature and usage of heating in the home, many electricity companies now provide customers with thermostats. 

However, if you find any mould in the building, our skilled technicians are on hand to help. We operate 24/7, 365 days a year, and are even able to attend the site within an hour in cases of emergency to begin work.

Deal with any water damage

Water damage is a leading cause of mould occurrence, and can be caused by anything from a leaky roof to clogged gutters. Ensure your gutters are serviced regularly to prevent a build-up of dirt and debris, and have any leaks repaired as soon as possible. 

Leaks in your house lead to damp spots in your house, often leading to mould. Be sure to inspect your building for signs of damage periodically, including for any cracks in the facade.

Once mould has developed, it can spread through your property within 24-48 hours. Mould spores are detrimental to your health, causing side effects such as:

  • Lung damage
  • Throat irritation
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea 
  • Skin irritation

Other risks include the rare illness aspergillosis, which can affect your lungs and breathing. For more information about the impact mould can have on your health, take a look at the NHS website.

Should you experience water damage in your property, we can help. We are flood damage cleaning specialists and utilise advanced tools and technologies to remedy the situation.

Ensure adequate ventilation 

Ventilation is key to preventing mould within the home. From opening the windows while cooking and showering, or making use of your extractor fan, all of these measures can make a difference.

The amount of condensation produced during these types of activities can be high, resulting in increased levels of humidity within the property. The ideal humidity in a building should be between 30-50%, so be sure to monitor this to prevent it becoming an issue.

Purchasing a dehumidifier is also a good idea to help circulate the air in damp prone areas and to reduce the amount of moisture in the environment. However, depending on how large the unit is, this could be quite a costly solution.

Have a look at our blog on preventing mould in bathrooms to find out some additional steps you can take to minimise this issue. 

Swiftly dry wet areas

Approximately two thirds of the UK population say they have experienced problems with mould in their property according to a report by USwitch, showing how widespread the problem is.

If you have had a spillage in your home, or suffered a leak, ensure that the area is dried swiftly to help prevent mould developing in the surrounding areas. This may even require professional attention if the damage is significant.

In your daily routine, you can take several steps to prevent rooms of the home becoming wet. This includes drying clothes outside wherever possible and not leaving them on the radiators to dry. It's important to keep on top of this due to how quickly mould can spread.
