Do you have a mould problem in your household?

As the number one mould removal perth experts, Pinnacle Roofing & Ceiling Services will visit your property to establish exactly what the problem is, where the mould is coming from and exactly how we can treat it to eradicate the problem completely.

What Causes Mould and Why Is It So Dangerous?

Ceiling and wall mould is especially prevalent in bathrooms or any area where there may be moisture combined with poor ventilation.

Structural Weakening

For example, when moisture from shower use is inadequately ventilated, the moisture hits the underside of the roof and consequently drips back down onto the topside of the ceiling or insulation. This in turn creates a damp and humid environment within the roof cavity.

Toxic Mould Spores

As a common issue for many households in Perth, mould removal is required to ensure your home and occupants do not suffer from the negative effects that mould can bring. Without mould treatment, it can become a breeding ground for toxic black mould spores (Stachybotrys chartarum), producing toxins called mycotoxins. Airborne mould spores can have serious long term damage to the human body.

Without trying to sound too alarmist, the dangers of toxic black mould can include:

  • Damage to internal organs
  • Immune system suppression
  • Mental impairment
  • Haemorrhage
  • Respiratory problems
  • Immune system suppression
  • Nausea
  • Irritation of the mucous membranes

Our Process for Mould Removal

Perth homeowners and customers throughout Western Australia have been able to rely on our mould removal expertise for countless years. Our vastly experienced team have come across pretty much every mould treatment scenario you could think of, and are exceptionally competent in tackling even the worst cases of mould.

When performing mould remediation treatment, we take every precaution, including wearing appropriate protective clothing and using quality breathing apparatus.

We apply a methodical approach to every job;

  • Identify the source of the problem
  • Implement preventative measures such as:
    • Applying direct ducted ventilation
    • Ensuring sufficient roof ventilation
    • Ensuring insulation has not been squeezed in at perimeter so that it is
      in contact with both underside of roof and ceiling. This results in
      transfer of condensation, causing dampness
    • Removing any damp insulation
    • Ensuring ceiling isn’t too damp and is allowed to breathe
  • Treat the mould with a chemical-free trusted solution
  • Prepare a preventative maintenance plan for how the customer can maintain a mould-free environment post-mould remediation

Other recommendations and tips for Mould Removal and Mould Prevention:

While mould remediation is possible for the worst-case scenarios, it is best to take action to nip mould growth in the bud. Here are some tips that can help prevent mould growth.

Natural light

Mould grows better in a darker environment. Installing a product such as a CSR Edmonds Turbobeam roof vent which has a perspex head will allow for natural light to reach into the roof cavity. Similarly, natural light also deters nocturnal animals such as rats.

Natural ventilation

Ensuring windows and doors are open as much as possible to allow for natural ventilation into your home can prevent mould from being created. Furthermore, it helps to have mesh security screens that act as both a security and fly screen for when you are trying to ventilate your home.

Electrical ventilation

One key tip for helping to reduce the creation of mould is to leave your exhaust fans on after showering or bathing. Once a shower or bath has been turned off, moisture continues to remain in the air and needs to be dispersed in order to reduce the chances of mould forming.

With these tips, you should be equipped with the knowledge to prevent mould growth and protect your home from further mould contamination.
