How it works

Effective mold control

Mold poses a serious threat to both human health and the fabric of the building. Under favorable conditions, mold can spread quickly, although visible signs do not necessarily appear. For this reason, you should react quickly in the event of mold infestation and consult a specialist. [1.]

The removal of visually visible mold stains is only the tip of the iceberg. Therefore, for the permanent elimination of mold, the source of moisture, from which the mold is fed, must first be permanently eliminated. Unfortunately, in practice, usually only the visible part of the mold is cleaned and painted over with a diffusion-proof paint. This often leads to an increase in moisture, which can now accumulate in the wall or on the paint.

We carefully identify the causes of the moisture, which we then mitigate with suitable systems. If the moisture comes from the inside, we work with intelligent ventilators; if it comes from the building structure, we carry out electrophysical building drying. Only after the moisture problem has been solved do we remove the mold and give the walls a new coat of diffusion-open paint. Contact us without obligation.

What is mold?

The term "mold" colloquially refers to several types of fungi that thrive in moist environments on organic materials such as wood, wallpaper or plaster. Molds form a fine network in the infested material and do not necessarily have to be visually apparent.

What are the signs of mold?

Signs of mold are musty odor, dark spots (so-called "mold stains") or discoloration on walls, ceilings or in corners. Mold can appear in different colors such as black, gray, white, green, yellow and red.

What are the causes of mold?

Mold needs persistent moisture and organic material to grow. Common causes of moisture in buildings include condensation due to high humidity and cool wall surfaces; rising damp in walls; pressing slope or ground water; water damage due to leaking pipes or faulty installations; inadequate ventilation or heating; or leaks in the building.

Where does mold occur?

According to the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) moisture problems and mold occur in every fourth to fifth household in Switzerland. Bathrooms, basements and kitchens are most frequently affected. In general, areas in the building that cool down or are insufficiently ventilated have a high risk of mold.

What should I do in case of mold infestation?

According to the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), you should have mold remediation carried out professionally on an area of 0.5 square meters or more. Ask us without obligation. The FOPH has issued "Mold in living spaces" published a brochure on how to properly assess and respond appropriately to mold infestation.

Why is it better to consult professionals about mold?

It is better to leave the assessment of mold infestation and its causes to a professional, especially since mold does not always appear visually and the causes of moisture can depend on several factors. If the moisture problem is not solved properly, the mold may return within a short time.

How to remove mold permanently?

The causes of the moisture must be carefully analyzed and then eliminated. This is often more difficult than it may sound. If, for example, the building fabric absorbs moisture, as is the case with many old buildings, an electrophysical drying of buildings be necessary to get rid of the moisture problem.

How to protect yourself during mold remediation?

We equip our employees with personal protective equipment appropriate to the type of mold infestation. In doing so, we adhere to the Leaflet of the Swiss Accident Insurance Fund (SUVA) on the subject of "Mold remediation in indoor areas.

What is the process of mold treatment?

After we have inspected the mold infestation and drawn up a remediation concept, we start with the first treatment: In the process, we remove the contaminated materials and treat the affected surfaces. Subsequently, we paint the surface with a diffusion-open anti-mold coating.

Approximately how long does mold removal take?

Mold removal takes between one and several weeks. This depends on the extent of the infestation and the materials affected. Usually, several staggered treatments are required.

Can you guarantee a permanently mold-free result?

Yes, by carefully analyzing the cause of moisture and then eliminating it using appropriate methods, we can guarantee a permanently mold-free result.

Who does the mold control?

First, one of our building experts or building biologists assesses the mold infestation. The treatments are then carried out by our employees. They are trained masons with a lot of experience in moisture problems in buildings and mold remediation.

R. S. from Montreux says:

«The humidity has reduced to a normal level (50%-60%) within a very short time and the air quality in the heating system and basement is unrecognizable. No more musty smell, no more mold! This is a great improvement compared to the last years. The combination of the DRYMAT® electrophysical system and the Grammer®Solar fan for automated ventilation really seems ideal.» ➝ other references
