FACT: Not all Mould is Created Equal

Like most things, mould comes in various strains and depending on the type of mould, the cleaning and remediation action plan can differ greatly to ensure a successful mould clean up.

Determining the type of mould growth cannot be made by doing a simple Google Image search online and should be left to an expert mould remediation technician to accurately determine the type of mould spore that is growing in your property.

FACT: Mould Spores Can Create Series Health Issues

Whether allergenic, pathogenic or toxigenic, all mold types carry health risks. However, some strains are especially harmful.

Toxic black mold, the type that’s often found in damp or water-damaged buildings and homes, causes serious symptoms and health problems, and sometimes even leads to death.

  • Respiratory symptoms
  • Circulatory symptoms
  • Vision and eye problems
  • Skin problems
  • Immune system problems
  • Reproductive system problems


Many people are surprised to hear that mould can cause mental and neurological symptoms.

Mental/neurological symptoms:

  • Shortened attention span
  • Dizziness
  • Memory loss and memory problems
  • Impaired learning ability
  • Hallucinations
  • Shock
  • Anxiety
  • Aggression and other personality changes
  • Seizure

FACT: No Spore Must Be Left Behind

In order to remove a mould colony and guarantee that it doesn’t come back to rear its toxic head, you must remove 100% of the spores.

This is why the Sewage Cleaning Australia mould-removal specialists have to use such corrosive disinfectants amongst other specialised cleaning chemicals and equipment and completely seal off mould-infested environments to prevent spore spreading.

If you try to remove mould yourself without the appropriate chemicals and knowledge you can run the risk of not successfully removing all of the mould spores and creating a bigger mould infestation unwittingly. With spores spreading by wind and reproduction, you could unknowingly turn a one-colony situation into several-colony devastation.


By entrusting your mould removal to SewageCleaning.com.au you guarantee that all infected areas are 100% treated and spores are not further disseminated throughout the home or building. All of the Sewage Cleaners mould removal technicians are up-to-date on industry standards and have access to the proper remediation equipment.
