Protecting Your Home from Mould


The Mould Doctor offers more than mould remediation alone – we inspect, correct and protect your property from future outbreaks of mould, too. The best way to protect your home from mould – aside from rectifying structural faults – is to eliminate sources of dampness and moisture within your property.

A good quality air purifier is essential to a healthy home – particularly if you’ve suffered a mould outbreak in the past. Even seemingly clean air can be packed with pollutants that are harmful to the health of your family and pets. In fact, indoor air pollution is one of the top five environmental risks to public health, and as much as 50% of illnesses are worsened by poor indoor air quality.

What might be lingering in my air?

  • Airborne particles: dust, pollen, debris.
  • Bacteria and viruses: mould, fungus, yeast.
  • Odours: smoking, cooking, chemicals.
  • Volatile organic compounds: cleaning supplies, paint, glue.

A quality air purifier eliminates these toxins from the air in your home and improves circulation to prevent the build-up of mould spores. They work by passing the air through several filters, each targeting a different strain of spore. The filters your air will pass through include:

  • Pre-filter
  • Carbon filter
  • HEPA filter
  • Titanium Dioxide filter
  • Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation filter
  • Negative ions filter

Ridding the air in your home of these harmful contaminants makes for a much healthier, cleaner living space. Did you know indoor air is nearly 5 times worse for the human body than outdoor air?
