Mould Removal in Sydney and NSW

AES employs a simple four stage procedure to identify and remove moisture and mould from homes and commercial buildings.

The mould remediation process

Step 1. Inspection
Identifying the areas affected by mould

  • AES will conduct a thorough inspection of the home or building to determine and put into place a process to eliminate the root cause of the mould growth – water ingress problem from blocked or damaged drains and gutters, ineffective weather proofing, ground water from flooding, indoor condensation due to poor ventilation, and so on.
  • We use protimeter (moisture) readings, infrared imaging, temperature, humidity, and dew point readings, to assess indoor moisture levels and identify areas of concern.
  • We can take surface and air samples to identify mould types and spore counts if necessary.
  • We provide a written report detailing our findings and recommendations, including an itemised quotation.

Step 2. Drying

  • Once the root cause of mould growth has been eliminated, it is essential that the affected areas are dried to required levels, so that mould does not return.
  • Moisture affected and wet areas are dried using air movers, fans, or heaters.

Step 3. Mould Removal
Physical removal of the mould from the affected areas or items

  • We install containment around the mould affected area to prevent the contamination of adjacent clean areas during removal works.
  • We physically remove visible, accessible mould using mild and eco-safe cleaning products.
  • We remove and dispose of porous and semi-porous materials and items with major active mould growth – minor areas of mould contamination on porous materials may be cleaned successfully.
  • We HEPA vacuum adjacent areas to remove potential settled spores.

Step 4. Air Purification

  • We filter the air using an air scrubber (purifier) fitted with a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter.

AES has internationally recognised accreditation in the fields of water restoration and applied microbial restoration (mould remediation). AES specialists Andrew Konarev and Michael Pepper are certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification for Applied Microbial Remediation and Water Damage Restoration.
