Q. What steps can I take against mould in my home?
A. If your home has condensation, it is possible that mould can grow, often as black spots on your walls, ceilings, furnishings and even on clothes and toys.
To kill and remove the mould, regularly follow these steps:
- Carefully remove excess mould with a damp cloth and throw away after. Do not brush mould as this releases spores into the air.
- Use rubber gloves to wipe down affected areas using a fungicidal wash or diluted bleach. Wearing safety glasses is recommended.
- Once the mould has been removed, redecorate using a good quality fungicidal / anti-mould paint.
- Dry clean mildewed clothes and shampoo carpets.
