Health Risks of Mould and Moisture

Exposure to mould and moisture can lead to a range of health issues such as headaches, respiratory infections, skin irritations, coughing, sneezing, fatigue, aggravated asthma, behavioural changes, and depression. Learn more about the health effects of mould exposure, how to identify mould growth, and how to prevent it from the National Library of Medecine’s  Prevalence, Risk Factors and Impacts Related to Mould-Affected Housing: An Australian Integrative Review – PMC (nih.gov)

Our Comprehensive Inspection Process

At Wizard Leak Detection, we offer a thorough inspection process that includes:

  • Visual inspection
  • Moisture testing
  • Thermal imaging inspections
  • Air and surface testing
  • Analysis of air quality factors (condensation, humidity)
  • Assessment of underlying issues (water leaks, stormwater damage, drainage problems)

We use cutting-edge equipment like FLIR Thermal Infrared Cameras and digital moisture meters to inspect hard-to-reach areas such as behind walls and between cavities.

Moisture Testing and Detection

Our moisture testing equipment can detect moisture in walls and other surfaces where it’s not visible to the naked eye. We use a concrete moisture meter that provides a moisture reading in the form of a score out of 100:

  • 35-50: Dry
  • 50-75: Damp
  • 75-100: Wet

This non-destructive testing method helps us identify rising damp, water leaks, and moisture ingress from wet areas like behind shower walls.

Prevention and Remediation

High moisture levels can attract timber pests, such as termites, and cause wood decay and mould. To prevent moisture intrusion and related issues, follow these steps:

  • Avoid sprinklers directly hitting walls
  • Do not place raised garden beds and moist mulch against walls and footings
  • Regularly inspect and clean gutters and downpipes to prevent overflow
  • Ensure weep holes are unblocked to allow airflow

For more information on identifying mould growth, cleaning it up safely, and preventing its recurrence, refer to the Western Australian Department of Health’s guide on “Mould and Dampness in Homes”.

If moisture issues are detected, it’s crucial to find the root cause and remediate the problem as soon as possible to prevent further damage. Consult the Australian Government’s guide on “Moisture in Buildings” for more details on moisture detection and prevention.
