These are all questions that anybody that has had a mould problem has asked themselves. I'm going to go through each one and give an answer
How did I get mould?
There are quite a few ways mould can start. But for any mould to grow there are three things that must be present and they are:
- Mould spores
Once these are in any given area it certain that you will get mould to grow. So how do mould spores get in my home. They can creep their way in via:
- Pets that have been outside
- You if you have been outside via your clothing or footwear
- Food that has gone off
- Leaks from water pipes onto your walls in your home
- Bad ventilation in bathrooms
So what happen? Once the mould spores are in your home and you have a excess of moisture somewhere, they will begin to grow. This is why mould can be commonly found in air conditioning units, and in your ducting. Mould spores are easily able to travel through the air on a small air current. If they manage to make it to your air conditioning(where there is a fair amount of moisture), they will begin to grow and that is when you will start to have a musty/bad smell coming from your air conditioning.
So how do you prevent mould spores from entering your home? Well unless you have a flash clean system in your house that you are required to go through every time you enter, so you are sanitized, you just cant stop it. Mould and mould spores are everywhere.
Some would say "Does that mean I can never win against mould" and I would say No. You can definitely win against mould, you just have to fight it in the right battle ground. And that is inside you House, Car or Office, any indoor environment where you can control it.

So how do I get rid of it once it latches on?
There are some signs that you need to look out for. If you notice any of these then it means you have a mould problem somewhere. They are:
- Detection of a musty smell when entering a premise
- Visual observation of mould on walls / furniture / furnishings
- Visual observation of mould on clothing / shoes
- Car air conditioner has gone musty
- Car smells like sweaty sports clothes
- Car smells like cigarette smoke
- You have used our Indoor Air Quality Test Kit and it has displayed a coloured result, the higher the contamination the more intense the colour.
- You have used a Surface test kit and it has displayed a coloured result.
- You are constantly coughing or sneezing
- Having trouble breathing at home or inside you indoor air space
If you are noticing any of these things it is time to start a mould treatment.
