Mould Elimination System

Mould, what is it?

A tiny fungus called mould thrives in moist environments. mould spores can be found everywhere and are frequently discharged into the atmosphere in large numbers. 

Furry black, white, or green patches on the walls and a musty odour are indications of mould in the house.

The dangers of mould and damp in homes increase during the winter's lower temps.


What physiological effects can mould have?

Mould-affected residents are more likely to develop allergies, asthma, infections, or respiratory ailments.

Spores, cells, fragments, and "volatile organic compounds" can all be released into the air by mould.

These particles can trigger allergic reactions such as sneezing, runny noses, red eyes, and skin rashes when inhaled or touched.

Moulds can also set off asthma episodes, resulting in coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath.

Experts claim that even those without asthma can experience an inflammatory reaction.

Mould can sometimes be inhaled and discovered growing in the lungs; this is potentially fatal.

The elderly, toddlers, infants, those with pre-existing respiratory illnesses, and those with certain skin conditions are among those who are more at risk.

Additionally, individuals who already have a compromised immune system from illness or medications they are taking may be more vulnerable to mould.


What triggers mould growth in structures?

Mould is primarily brought on by condensation in houses across the UK.

The places in the house with the most moisture are the restrooms, kitchens, and the areas around windows.

The air's water vapour condenses into water molecules when the temperature drops to what is referred to as the dew point.

Water droplets will form if water vapour comes into touch with a surface inside the house that is below the dew point, such as an uninsulated exterior wall or a cold window.

The surface can become damp and foster the growth of mould if it is not cleaned.

It is acknowledged that older buildings are more susceptible to this, but so are properties with inadequate insulation.

Daily activities that produce too much dampness can also result in mould growth.

A lot of the time, it's resident behaviour—things that we all do and can't help but do.

For instance, we all take showers, prepare, and do our laundry at home. 

Experts have issued warnings that, if people choose not to turn on their heating because of high costs during the winter, mould conditions could worsen as a result of the energy crisis.


What can be done to eradicate mould permanently?

Instead of just wiping it away and painting over it in an attempt to conceal or cover it, Electriko Electrical Services has a proven anti-fungal/mould elimination system that deals with the underlying cause of a mould infestation.

Our damp and mould specialists conduct a preliminary evaluation that enables us to pinpoint the precise cause of the damp and mould in a property. Once this is identified, we can address any significant problems to significantly lower the likelihood of recurrent dampness, which feeds the growth of mildew. Then, we implement our custom 3-part system, which makes use of a variety of variables present in a room via our proprietary smart technology and algorithm to keep the mould and damp from reappearing.
