Mould Clean-Up and Restoration Tutorial

Because of the UK's damp climate, mould is a common problem in many homes. Even so, cleaning up mould is fairly straightforward.
Successful and lasting restoration of mould damage is a slightly different matter. A lot depends on factors such as the extent of the problem and the measures you take to prevent mould returning.
The first thing you need for a clean-up is a water-based mould remover. You could use a solvent-based alternative if you wish. But a these generally contain hazardous materials and can emit noxious fumes. Check the label to ensure your product does not state that it is harmful.
A water-based mould remover is as good as a solvent based alternative. It doesn't contain any hazardous properties and can be used  without worrying about your health.
Such a mould remover is useful in confined areas where ventilation is poor. A water-based mould remover is free from odours so you can apply it without wearing a mask.

How to use.

How you use a water-based mould remover depends upon the surface you are treating. If mould is growing in the corners of your shower, bath and windows, you could just spray it on. The solution starts controlling the mould immediately.
The same approach can be used for small patches of mould on carpets, curtains and furniture. A few squirts from a spray should be enough to destroy the mould spores.
If you have a large area of mould growth such as a wall, you could put the solution into a watering can. Soak the affected area with the contents of the can. The treatment of mould with a water-based solution is safe, effective and quick.
Restoration is another issue. For example, if you have a serious mould infestation on a ceiling or wall, you may have to remove the plaster rather than restore it. Removal could be the only way you uncover the cause of the underlying dampness such as a burst pipe.
Restoration of wood is usually easier. If the mould is on a window sill, you can treat the mould, leave the wood to dry and repaint it. But you must also prevent the mould returning. For example, condensation may have formed on the window, run down the pane and collected on the sill. This would create the damp conditions mould thrives in.
You have to find the cause of the condensation. This could be a lack of ventilation in steamy areas of your home such as your kitchen and bathroom.
Restoring carpets, curtains and the fabric on furniture after removing mould is another job many householders face. You may have to deal with unpleasant mould stains.
A proprietary cleaner may work on a carpet. You could put curtains in the wash or take them to a dry cleaner according to the type of fabric. Be prepared for disappointment, though. Mould stains can be stubborn.
For furniture, obtain a cleaner suitable for the fabric and apply it with care. You may need to use the cleaner a number of times.
As well as removal and restoration,  always look for the cause of the mould. You don't want to give mould spores a chance to cause further mess and damage.
I would always recommend a quality water based mould treatment such as FUZE MoGo.
