Mould Cleaning and Remediation Guide for Property Managers:
Have you ever received a call from an angry tenant or landlord along the lines of: “help, my property is growing mould – what do I do”? or “you better let me out of paying rent until my place is clean and liveable again”…then you need to let Biological Health Services give you some assistance!
Maybe you’re a home owner or investor and have stumbled onto this page looking for answers to your mould or dampness problem. We are experts in this field and are considered the #1 choice of real estate agents and property managers across Australia.
Mouldy homes occur due to a number of factors…water damage, leaks, floods, lack of ventilation, condensation, poor construction or installation issues, faulty guttering, lack of waterproofing around windows, rising damp, fan failures, sub-floor ventilation issues, dirty HVAC or heating systems, occupant behaviour, non-removal of waste, and many other factors.
This can lead to small and large scale contamination as well as mouldy odours. In turn, mould is an allergen, and can cause a range of deleterious health problems.
The first thing you need to do, is check the condition report on tenant entry. Keep a diarised record with photos if possible of all issues that are relayed to you. Ensure there is a continuing dialogue between you, the tenant and the property owner to minimise conflicts and move towards a practicable solution for each party. Call us for prompt and confidential on-site assessments, scope of works and written reports as required.
We have worked with many of Australia’s leading Real Estate Agencies, and pride ourselves on being able to work across the differing viewpoints and expectations of the tenant, property manager and owner/landlord.
