Tips to Prevent Mould from taking over your home

Follow these TIPS TO PREVENT MOULD taking over your home or office.

. Mould needs moisture to grow. The aim is to reduce moisture settling in the
house. This is particularly the case while you are away.

. Mould loves anything organic.. think leather, cardboard, paper, books, chipboard
cabinets etc. Add to this a little moisture and you have the perfect mix to promote
mould growth.


. Air flow is crucial, so Fans On! If you have ceiling fans leave them on 24/7. If you
don’t have them, invest in standing fans. Use a timer for during the heat of the day
ie 10-2pm+


. Close all cupboard and wardrobe doors, After you have placed a moisture
absorber inside.

. If you have a dehumidifier with a hose outlet that can be drained into a sink, use
it! Set the timer to run for 4-6 hours per day in the heat of the day, ie 10am

. Place a spare sheet over the top of bedding to protect against potential mould
spores landing and growing on top of the bedding.

. If concerned about timber cooking utensils and chopping boards place them inside
a plastic tub with a Thirsty Camel pouch

. Leather belts and shoes are often the first to be ‘attacked’. The best prevention
for mould in shoe cabinets is a good moisture absorber. Thirsty Camels come in
small sizes too!

. Place moisture-absorbing pouches throughout your house. Thirsty Camel pouches
are a perfect choice for long periods unattended due to their large absorbancy
capacity. Varying sizes are available for placement in living areas, inside
wardrobes, shoe cupboards, kitchen drawers, photo boxes etc.

. We strongly advise regular/Annual cleaning be undertaken inside and out of all
cupboards, wardrobes and shoe cabinets. The following steps should be taken:

  1. Vacuum the area thoroughly.
  2. Apply Concrobium Disinfectant (OR new: Botanics Multi-Purpose) to the
    entire surface and leave damp for at least 10mins
  3. wipe off with Micro-fibre cloth (don’t use water on the cloth… this will only dilute the solution)
  4. re-apply chemical and leave to dry.
