Mould Removal By Professionals
Mould removal or remediation is essential if it is noticed or starts to develop in anyone living space. What it warrants is a treatment that can only be provided by a mould removal specialist. This way things will be treated both safely and effectively with no health risks. If this process is not done with extreme caution and expertise, mould simply spreads and thrives in any suitable environment. Capital Steam Cleaners we are mould removal professionals and are a fully trained company recognised by the IICRC. Initially we will offer a mould assessment or inspection to find the source and give our opinion based on what we discover. We operate throughout the city of Perth and metro area in Western Australia.

In addition we only use premium and reliable equipment and products to remediate. This means we can quickly and successfully handle any professional mould cleaning job at hand.
Mould Removal Step by Step
Our multi step process causes existing mould colonies to be destroyed which obviously leads to dissipation. Of course the moisture source that is allowing the spores to thrive must definitely be rectified a before any attempts are made to kill mould spores. Failing to do this means the problem will more than likely return after completion. A specialist drying or air scrubbing procedure is also introduced to clear the environment and appropriately!
The mould removal professional we assign to your job will sometimes have to pay the site more than one visit! Normally we are forced to drop the air pressure down to a negative rate to significantly reduce the risk of cross contamination that may be present in the air. Depending on what type of environment we are dealing may cause the progression of mould. It can also determine whether foul odours are present or will further develop within the property. If you have a moisture problem, don’t have adequate ventilation and have neglected the mould for to long, the likelihood that the mould spores have spread throughout is very high.
Is Mould Dangerous?
Mould spores are can be toxic and if inhaled can cause a vast range of health problems. These issues are mainly relevant to a person’s respiratory system, causing throat irritation, possible damage to one’s lungs and leaving you with severe nasal congestion. In the right conditions at any given time you could likely have mould spores on your clothes and body causing these problems.
People with existing medical conditions, especially conditions such as asthma and allergies, should be particularly cautious of mould. Mould should never be underestimated as the permanent damage it can cause is severe!
One must always act quickly and responsibly! This in the long run will make all the difference. For this reason, if you notice mould festering within an area, it’s vital that you contact your professional mould removal company, sooner rather than later. This is always regardless of the size or capacity of the affected areas. Remember mould is a fungus and can spread exceptionally fast. This is not only on physical surfaces but through the air as well. Professional mould cleaner specialists give advice and prevent the spread can also be assisted by air conditioners, fans and even through draft!
Reasons for Mould Development
As mentioned briefly in the chapter above, the result of mould developing indicates that there is moisture or dampness around. A possible water leakage issue coming from leaking roofs, leaking pipes, leaking windows etc onsite. Air ducts, air filters or other ventilation systems are sometimes the culprit. Lack of ventilation can severely instigate then accelerate the contamination making professional mould treatment more complicated! The affected areas need to be completely dried to prevent the mould spores from spreading throughout the entire premise. If not terminated mould spores can quickly form colonies that allow them to thrive and spread.

Should I be living in a house with Mould?
It is not recommended that you live on a premises contaminated with black mould spores. If these spores get into your home. black mould is toxic and can cause immediate health issues and possibly even result in long-term health issues or consequences.
Does my homeowner insurance cover mould at all?
Up front we can suggest most insurance policies do not cover mould. That is because most insurance company policies state mould is caused by negligence. Things are however different if there is a flood involved. Most policies will pay if the mould is secondary damage caused by these events if reported immediately.
What Causes Ceiling Mould?
Mould will generally appear on ceilings due to dampness caused by possible roof damages or leaks, bad ventilation or lack of natural light around, high humidity levels, cooking without exhaust fans, condensation, etc. Once it starts to appear inside mould can start to spread faster indoors than it normally would outdoors.
Is it OK to just paint over mould?
Just simply painting over mould will by no means solve a mould problem. One needs to use mould remediation and appropriate products to kill the mould spores properly. Mould-resistant paint only works to proactively prevent mould, and it will not terminate it.
Why Leave Mould Removal To The Professionals?
It is a great idea to be proactive and get mould problems addressed the right way. Attempting to take these matters into your own hands could put your property at risk. There are many reasons for bringing in a fully trained company to do the job.
Professionals are inclined to use protective equipment and removal equipment to help mitigate exposure to mould. They have hours of training re precautions and the way mould should be handled safely. Trained professionals also ensure the best results for the job at hand and no recurrence. Professionals will also be experienced with knowing where to look and discover any mould that is not only visible but perhaps hidden and dormant. Professionals give you all the information you require and advice for the future re prevention etc.
Prevent Mould Growth in Your Home or Office?
Keep humidity levels in your home or office as low as you can. This means it cannot exceed 50% at any time of the day. An effective air conditioner or dehumidifier will help you keep the level low. You can buy a specialist gauge to check your home or office humidity level. Keeping and eye out for leaks or visible black marks appearing is a must.
Even a non-expert can recognize a mould infestation by means of a simple sniff test or visual evaluation. Mould often presents itself as dark or different coloured spots on a surface or in an area (but remember not all mould is black). And, almost all mould has that one horrible characteristic in that musty scent.

Would highly recommend Sean and his team above everyone else. We have a large house which had multiple pet stains and odours on the carpets throughout. Sean explained the process and what options were available, he was punctual and communicated clearly throughout the process.
The house is looking fantastic and the carpets are odour free. Well done Sean 👍 – 5 stars from me and my family.
I used Capital Steam Cleaning to clean the interior of a second hand car I just purchased and re-stretch my bedroom and lounge carpet. Sean’s fabric knowledge combined with what product to use on various stains and surfaces was impressive. The results were truly amazing. He transformed everything back to more than I expected. Great service, punctual and friendly. Highly recommended+++
