Mould appears everywhere, even in the most unlikely places.

Depending on the type of mould, the air around the mould can potentially be very dangerous to breathe in, as mould releases microspores into the air that can infect our lungs. Book a mould inspection and let our trained specialists identify sources of mould growth in your home or office.

Moisture: The biggest culprit

Understanding moisture levels in your home is vital to seeking out the root cause of mould growth.

Common moisture sources


Singapore's wet and hot weather results in a very humid atmosphere. The mean annual relative humidity in Singapore is 83.9%, frequently reaching 100% during rainy seasons. Water vapour in the air easily condenses on surfaces in our homes and this encourages mould growth.


Bad plumbing or old pipes could cause leakage, resulting in soaked walls or ceilings, which are prime locations for mould to grow.

Ground water

Subsurface intrusion by ground water could cause water to seep into floors and cause mould to grow. Occurs more commonly in landed properties.

Water points

Taps, drains, sinks, showers, bath tubs are where water is designed to flow. As such, moisture can seep into the furniture around these water points, encouraging mould growth.


The difference in temperature inside and outside a cold room could cause condensation to form on the walls and door frames, encouraging mould growth.

Air Conditioning

Air Conditioning Units frequently have condensation issues, due to poor insulation or trunking, resulting in leaks. This could cause mould to grow under, or behind the ACUs.

Structural faults

Structural damages or badly constructed buildings could cause rainwater to flow into the ceilings of buildings, frequently occurring in landed properties or penthouses.

  • What health risks are associated with mould growth?
    Mould exposure can lead to various health issues, including respiratory problems such as asthma, chest tightness, and pulmonary fibrosis (PF) in severe cases. Individuals may also experience symptoms like sneezing, nasal congestion, skin rash, itching, watery eyes, and a persistent rotten smell.
  • How do I know if I have a mould problem in my home or business?
    Signs of mould growth include a musty odour, visible mould patches on walls, ceilings, or furniture, and experiencing any of the aforementioned health symptoms. If you suspect mould growth, it's essential to conduct a thorough inspection by qualified professionals.
  • Can't I just clean the mould myself?
    While surface cleaning may temporarily remove visible mould, it often fails to address the underlying cause. Professional mould removal is necessary to detect and permanently eliminate mould sources, preventing recurrence and ensuring comprehensive treatment.
  • Why is mould removal important, especially in Singapore's climate?
    Singapore's humid climate creates an ideal environment for mould growth, making it prevalent in indoor spaces. To maintain a healthy environment and prevent structural damage, timely mould removal services are crucial.
  • What measures can I take to prevent mould growth in my home or business?
    Reducing moisture levels is key to preventing mould growth. This can be achieved by ensuring proper ventilation, controlling humidity levels, and promptly addressing water leaks or dampness. Regular inspections and maintenance also help identify and address potential mould sources before they become problematic.
