Mould alert as seasonal changes prompts occupant behavioural changes
Mould Worx, a leading Australian environmental remediation company, specialising in mould remediation of air conditioning systems, contents, cool rooms and building internals, reports an increase in calls as a result of seasonal changes in the region
Pilbara, WA, AUS - Mould Worx, an environmental remediation company, specialising in mould remediation of air conditioning systems, personal belongings, cool rooms and building internals, reports an increase in calls for assistance as a result of seasonal changes in the region.
The Pilbara region has experienced un-seasonal weather patterns over the last few months, with some towns receiving triple the daily rainfall record for what was meant to be the dry season. The mining towns of Karratha and Port Hedland have experienced their wettest months on record, with the Bureau of Meteorology confirming the above average rainfall across the Pilbara and Kimberley regions.
Operations Director, Jacqueline Campbell explains that the wetter conditions contribute to more frequent water ingress into buildings and homes causing water damage and if affected indoor areas are not dried quickly contribute to increased risk of visible mould growth and damage. “What is more critical now as the temperature begins to climb and humidity levels increase is for people to be more diligent with their maintenance and cleaning and ensure that wet/soaked clothes and other damp or wet items, do not accumulate in enclosed rooms. We see a pattern occurring every year around this time, with visible mould growth on people’s clothes, shoes and outdoor sports equipment and as a result of these items being stored inside, cross-contamination on furniture and other indoor surfaces increases.”
With the right environmental conditions mould growth can occur in as little as a few days with whole rooms and contents being completely covered in mould if left un-checked. As temperatures rise, air conditioners are switched on and although cooling down temperatures within the room, often the air-conditioners do not remove the moisture from the air and so this results in moisture levels increasing in the room. Sufficient moisture removal (dehumidification) by the air conditioning system is critical in maintaining a moisture balance in the room. If insufficient stripping occurs, condensation will occur on surfaces leading to ideal conditions for mould to grow.
