Only if the mould is smaller than the size of your palm should you attempt to clean it yourself
1. Identify the source of moisture: Mould grows in damp and humid areas, so it is important to identify and address the source of moisture. This could be a leaky pipe, roof, or window, or even high humidity levels.
2. Improve ventilation: Make sure areas prone to moisture are well-ventilated. Open windows and doors, use extractor fans, and make sure air can circulate around the room.
3. Treat the affected area: Use PPE to protect your health as mould can be very dangerous for humans.
4. Dry the area thoroughly: After cleaning, use a dry towel or fan to dry the area thoroughly. Do not leave the area damp, as mould can grow again.
5. Dispose of porous materials: If mould has penetrated deep into porous materials, it may be best to dispose of them completely.
6. Prevent future mould growth: Maintain low humidity levels in your home by using a dehumidifier, fixing any leaks promptly and cleaning regularly.
Remember that mould can pose serious health risks, and it’s important to contact a professional if the mould is extensive or if you have any respiratory problems.
