Yes, mould can cause serious health problems, making you sick, because the spores from the fungus reproduce and can be airborne and inhaled.
According to NSW Health:
Health effects of mould exposure include a runny or blocked nose, irritation of the eyes and skin and sometimes wheezing. For people with asthma, inhaling mould spores may cause an asthma attack. Very rarely, people may develop a severe mould infection, usually in the lungs.
However, our professional mould treatment using our clinical grade ozone generators will kill mould spores and fungi on contact, leaving just the stain residue from mould that can easily be cleaned off.
Ozone will also eradicate the odour produced by mould by breaking down the biological structure of the bacteria that causes the mould.
STEP 1 – MOULD INSPECTION
Determine why mould is present by employing a professional mould inspection company or your builder.
STEP 2 – OZONE TREATMENT TO KILL AIRBORNE & SURFACE MOULD
Contact Ozone Disinfection to hire one of our powerful and efficient commercial grade ozone generators or enquire to have one of our Professional Teams visit your premises to manage the mould treatment process.
STEP 3 – CLEAN & REMOVE MOULD FROM SURFACES & PROPERTY
Ozone Disinfection does not remove the stains and dead spores from the surfaces. You will need to either do that yourself, please see our FAQ Page, Q14 for some advice on how to do that, or employ a professional cleaner who understands how to remove the dead spores effectively.
STEP 4 – REPAIR ANY LEAKS, VENTILATION OR CONDENSATION ISSUES THAT CAUSED MOULD TO FORM
Mould can be caused by various issues that can mostly be managed by considering the following:

Ozone disinfection sterilises surfaces by killing surface spores and bacteria, and micro particles and mould spores floating in the air.
When our powerful clinical grade ozone generators produce high concentrations of Ozone (O³) gas into an enclosed space, and the ozone gas reaches a specific concentration for a specific exposure period, the Ozone kills the mould spores on all surfaces, all objects, all equipment and most importantly any spores floating in the air and inside air ducts or air filters.
During the Ozone Disinfection cycle, Ozone gas fills the enclosed area quickly and the third atomic particle attaches to mould or spore particles floating in the air. This oxidisation process eliminates the third Oxygen atom that exists in Ozone (O³). What is left behind is a totally disinfected and neutralised area where the only residue is clean fresh (O²) Oxygen.
The pre-set programs used on our commercial grade Ozone generators ensure that the correct high concentration of Ozone is achieved and maintained, in order to guarantee the best possible disinfecting result.
The outcome is a completely disinfected space that smells fresh and clean for You, Your Team, Your Business and Your Family.
