Mould Removal Runaway Bay
We spend a lot of our time in bathrooms and keeping them clean is important for our personal hygiene. A common issue that can occur in bathrooms is the build up of mould in the grout. Mould often spreads in areas that are hard to get to, and it can easily stain! South Queensland Restorations advise that individuals stop the mould spreading by cleaning it as soon as they are aware of the mould existing. South Queensland Restorations can make the mould removal process straightforward and stress-free as we have all right products and equipment to make your bathroom look and feel brand new!
South Queensland Restorations was recently called to a project in Runaway Bay where a bathroom had suffered a mould outbreak.
Below is a video created by South QLD outlining how they clean mould caught in the grout in bathrooms:
Listed below are the bathroom mould removal steps in more detail:
South QLD first sprays the grout (not the tiles) with their own special acid solution and lets it work into the stains. They then scrub the acid solution into the grout with a broom. Lastly, South QLD rinses the tiles with water and allows it to dry. This job took 30 minutes but the time it takes to clean the grout, does depend on how large the area is.
If you are ever in need for mould to be removed from your bathroom call South Queensland Restorations. We have all the equipment needed for removing mould of any size in any area, and we use our own special acid solution to get rid of unwanted mould build up. Our team services Brisbane and Gold Coast cities and their surrounding suburbs from the Sunshine Coast to Tweed Heads.
Mould, What is it?
Mould is a fungus, which forms as a result of a warm, moist environment creating a breeding ground for spores on organic (wood) and synthetic (paint) materials. Mould removal should be looked into in the circumstances whereby a household member is asthmatic or if mould is prolonged or covering a large area of your home- generally speaking around one square meter.

How & Why You Should Get Rid of Mould
The process for DIY mould removal is relatively simple, but bare in mind it proves to be labour demanding. Firstly, vacuum up the mould with a HEPA filtered vacuum cleaner- a HEPA filter is crucial as it won’t spread the mould around. Secondly, use a mixture of diluted vinegar (4 parts vinegar: 1 part water) to scrub the mould away, causing it to overheat and die.
Mould has the potential to emit toxic spores and vapours into the air. In confined spaces or areas with large amounts of mould, these spores can create health problems inclusive of allergic reactions, and hypersensitivity or develop asthma and flu- like symptoms. Prolonged mould or areas that have flooded require specialist equipment (HEPA filter vacuum and respiratory machines) already possessed by mould removal professionals.
If DIY mould removal is beyond your talents, or you need professional services South Queensland Restorations can assist.
Professional Mould Removal
In a recent mould removal cleaning project in a bathroom of a home in Tweed Heads, the bathroom had no ventilation system in place resulting in the production of mould. Moisture created from the bathroom, had nowhere to escape and thus settled on the painted surfaces of the ceiling and walls of the bathroom. As a result of lack of air ventilation in the bathroom, natural moisture had nowhere to escape the building, thus producing mould spores. Using bleach chemicals and scrubbing techniques, the paint was peeled from the ceilings then mould was cleaned and removed. While the walls were ridden of the mould by incorporating HEPA filter vacuum equipment both prior and after cutting open and removing the plasterboard, in order to combat the spread of mould and dry out the walls.
The before and after shots highlight the large-scale mould removal cleaning carried by South Queensland Restorations which then allowed for later necessary painting and plaster reconstruction on affected surfaces.

When mould starts growing in parts of your home, there is cause to get worried and look for a solution. Mould contamination not only causes illnesses but also results in poor air quality around the house. Some of the illnesses caused by mould contamination include internal bleeding, cancer and gastrointestinal illnesses.
Apart from invading walls, mould can grow in areas such as cupboards, beneath tables, window sills and on fabrics such as carpets. Before learning how to remove mould on walls, there is need to know what causes their growth. Mould is caused by several factors, for example:
- Spore colony
- High temperature
- Poor light
Getting rid of mould from your walls is as easy as preventing their growth in the first place. However, where they are already there, you may have to call in the experts. South Queensland Restorations offer the best solution to your mould problems. First of all, they will send inspectors to inspect your home. This initial inspection will entail taking temperature and humidity readings so as to help them find out the reason behind the mould growth. Their readings will be done on the walls, carpets, window sills and other areas affected by mould.
After carrying out an inspection, the readings will then be sent to a laboratory. The main reason for this is to determine which type of mould has invaded your home. The laboratory results will also show whether the type of mould is harmful or not. These tests are important because the experts will get rid of the mould using methods that are appropriate for the specific type.
There are specific ways of getting rid of mould that grow on the wall. One of the methods which the experts will use includes HEPA vacuuming the wall surface before washing it. After washing down the mould the wall is given an antimicrobial cleanse. Another alternative would be to rip off the entire wall and replace it. This alternative is only used where the mould damage is severe and has penetrated the wall. It is also used in instances whereby cleaning the surface would not suffice.
After cleaning the wall, the technicians will take another swab and send it to the lab for further tests. This test will determine whether the problem has been rectified or whether there is need to clean the wall further. Most homeowners usually assume that getting rid of mould is easy and can be done simply by cleaning their wall with bleach. The sad news is that even after cleaning it with bleach, the mould may grow back. An antimicrobial treatment is therefore necessary.
If you live in Brisbane, consider calling in the experts when you notice any mould growth on your walls. South Queensland Restorations deals with mould removal of any severity. Above all, they have the right equipment and treatments to get rid of your mould problem from the root. Call us today to get an inspector sent to your home and to enjoy their affordable rates.
Do you know what to do with the mould that is around your house? Or do you know how to remove mould? Mould is a big problem –literally- in almost all homes, it comes presented in your drywall, sidings, decks, carpet, the cement lines of your shower and wood that gets dampen in a black form of infestation that can smell earthy, stale and musty and can be slimy, powdery and furry. Mould is kind of microscopic fungi organisms like mushrooms and yeast, they can both be found in the interior and exterior of your home in.
Things like dampness, humidity and warm weather make mould grow because they require a combination oxygen, water and food that is why the first thing we recommend you to do is to remove the possible source of moisture and water from areas that are affected by mould to rectify and prevent its existence. Mould exists to recycle organic material by digesting it the problem is as it grows it destroys what it is growing on; that is why you should treat it as quick as possible. One thing you must always remember is that just because you can’t see mould it does not mean it is not there.
The major problem with mould is that it affects people’s health in a bad way and some of them are even very toxic so take your precautions. They cause health issues by the release of spores into the air that have allergens and other toxins that can cause sinus and nasal congestion, allergies the cause eyes redness and runny noses, throat and skin irritation, trouble breathing and coughing plus it can worsen asthma and other problems like memory loss, head and body aches, nosebleeds, fever and mood swings that include depression.
Now let’s start with some steps you need to do to identify mould in order to remove it – do not forget that mould like mildew do not cause harm but other types of more severe mould cause wood and structures to rot. The mildew kind of moulds are typical found in non-porous or hard surfaces (like tiles, glass and tubs) which make them easy to clean with mixtures of bleach but mould growing in porous materials (like furniture, carpet and drywall/wood) can be a lot harder to handle and can’t be dealt with bleach.
Use your senses, the simplest way to recognise you have a mould problem is if you can smell it or see it. Most cleaning products will take care of minor mould infestations, remember to dry off the areas after treating them and to use covered clothes, goggles and mouthpieces. To correctly spot a mildew infestation put some bleach on top of the affected area, if it does not lighten it is dirt but if it does then you have mildew. The number one rule for mould prevention is to avoid damp areas and use mildewcide in paint. Check our complete website for more tips!
