How to Remove Mold from Exterior Surfaces

Updated: Apr 20

Mold can be a common problem on exterior surfaces, especially in areas like Queensland, with high humidity or frequent rainfall. Not only does it make your property look unsightly, but it can also pose health risks if left untreated. Thankfully, OCEANWAVE specializes in mold removal and can help you restore the clean and fresh appearance of your property. In this blog post, we will discuss how to remove mold from exterior surfaces and provide some tips to prevent its recurrence. 1. Identify the problem areas: Take a walk around your property and identify any areas that are prone to mold growth. These can include shaded areas, areas with poor drainage, or surfaces that are constantly exposed to moisture. By identifying these problem areas, you can take proactive measures to prevent mold growth in the future. 2. Safety first: Before you begin the mold removal process, it is important to prioritize safety. Wear protective gear such as gloves, goggles, and a mask to protect yourself from mold spores. Additionally, make sure to position yourself at an angle while using a pressure washer to ensure thorough cleaning without causing any damage to the surface. 3. Use the right cleaning solution: OceanWave utilizes a combination of pressure washing and soft washing techniques to effectively remove mold from exterior surfaces. Depending on the material of the surface, they use appropriate cleaning solutions that are safe and effective. It is important to choose the right cleaning solution for your specific surface to avoid any damage. 4. Pressure washing: Pressure washing is a powerful method to remove mold from exterior surfaces. The high-pressure water stream can effectively dislodge and remove the mold, revealing a clean and fresh surface underneath. OceanWave has the expertise and equipment to ensure a thorough and efficient pressure washing process. 5. Soft washing: In some cases, soft washing may be more suitable for delicate surfaces such as painted walls, wooden fences or roofs. Soft washing involves using a lower pressure and specialized cleaning solutions to gently remove mold without causing any damage. OceanWave offers soft washing services to cater to the specific needs of different surfaces. 6. Preventing mold recurrence: Once the mold has been removed, it is important to take preventive measures to avoid its recurrence. Ensure proper drainage in problem areas, trim back vegetation that may be blocking sunlight, and consider applying a mold-resistant coating to vulnerable surfaces. Regular maintenance and cleaning can also help prevent mold growth in the future.
