Before you sign your contract

have your house inspected for mould and ensure AC units are clean!

So, you have found a new home that you would like to move into. You can
visualise where the sideboard will be placed, the lamp in the corner, and where the
dog will sit to wait for the kids to get home from school.

But hold it there!!! .. before you sign anything, have you had a good look around
and/or used your nose to whiff out any faint musty smells? You Must check for
mould before you commit, no matter how much you love the look and feel of the

Freshly painted

Once you sign up it is often too late to request a mould inspection, removal, AC
cleaning or chemical cleaning to be undertaken. Just because the house has been
freshly painted does not mean that mould is not underlying. In fact, I would be
warier if it has been freshly painted prior to inspection. This could be an indicator
that mould has just been recently painted over and masked.

It will take about 3 months for this to re-appear, having found the paint a lovely
food source to actively grow on. You will also find, in more cases than not, the
cheap local paint used has been watered down and will do nothing to stop the
spread of mould growth underneath. If mould is/was present you would need to
use a specific professional mould cleaning solution and then a mould retardant
paint, this is the ONLY way to prevent mould reappearing.

Aircon servicing
Too many of us find out too late that the AC units have never been cleaned and are
in fact recirculating harmful unhealthy mould spores into our lungs. It is extremely
important to check the bedroom units as we spend the most amount of time here
asleep and unaware of what we are breathing.

Note that the one month grace period on a new contract will not cover additional
services like mould inspections, you absolutely need this included in your pre-signing requests.

Rest easy, have a Mouldgone inspection undertaken and put your mind at rest
that your chosen home is fresh and mould free.

Cost for inspection and full detailed report with personalised tips is $100.
This $100 is however deducted off your final account should you wish to proceed with
works being undertaken by a Mouldgone team.
