Why You Can Trust A-Jet With Mould Removal
Mould is a fungus, meaning it is a living organism. It produces microscopic spores that move through the air easily making them hard to detect – they are invisible to the naked eye. When mould spores are inhaled, ingested or come into contact with skin they can cause serious health issues such as inflamed airways, respiratory infections or irritations.
Mould grows in environments where there is high humidity combined with damp or wet conditions. It takes only a day or so for mould to begin to actively grow, releasing spores into the air. When mould isn’t contained, it spreads. That’s when you or others in your household may begin to develop symptoms such as headaches, sneezing and coughing. Prolonged exposure to extensive mould levels may also cause chronic health issues in even the healthiest of people. Not to mention the unsightly and significant damage it does to your property.
The effect of mould on our health and home is tangible and lasting. It’s categorized as a Level 1 health risk - the same as asbestos. That’s why mould removal should be treated as a serious health threat and be dealt with by a professional technician with experience in mould decontamination.
Luckily, we have years of experience removing mould from homes and commercial buildings around Auckland.
Getting in an expert to address the problem fully will ensure it doesn’t grow back. A-Jet will not only remove the mould but will also purify your air with specialist machines ensuring a healthy home or office again.

A-Jet Mould Removal Process
Get in touch as soon as you notice mould. The sooner we can attend to the issue, the less damage that will be caused. Upon arrival, our technician will assess the mould damage and class it according to its severity. This will inform how we restore the damage. We can then provide you with an estimate of the cost or help you lodge an insurance claim.
We conduct moisture tests and readings before we commence work to identify if your site needs to be dried first. If it does, we may need to set up a drying chamber. We’ll then use a range of extraction units, air movers, dehumidifiers, and Drymatic Boost Box technology to effectively dry affected areas. We will also set up air purifying machines to sanitize the air in the affected area.
When the drying is complete the decontamination and remediation starts. The techniques we use are dependent on the environment we’re working in. On completion we can arrange for any building remediation work that may need to be done to fully restore your home or workplace.
Our mould recovery technicians will monitor the decontamination process and make all the necessary adjustments. We will install air purifiers and deodorising machines to remove airborne mould. We can also put you in contact with a reputable builder for any building remediation work.
How long does drying take?It’s difficult to say as too many things impact the drying process. We dry to strict international standards set by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification. We use various moisture readers and thermal imaging to determine when areas are dried to standard.

What are the different types of water damage?Category 1: Clean Water. This water is from a source that is harmless to people. This could include overflowing bath, burst freshwater tap, or leaking from a water cooler. Category 2: Grey Water. This water has been contaminated with things such as bacteria, mould or chemicals, and thus poses a health risk. This could include dirty water from washing machines, dishwashers, broken aquariums or leaking toilets. It also may be from previous clean water (category 1) that has not been removed within a day or so. Category 3: Black Water. This water is riddled with disease-causing bacteria and harmful toxins, rendering it extremely unsanitary and dangerous. This could include sewer backflow, broken toilets containing faeces and rising external flood waters.
Can I turn off or move the equipment?No. We appreciate drying equipment is loud and makes rooms hot. It’s an unfortunate part of the drying process. Please don’t touch, move, or turn off equipment though, as this may cause equipment to break or malfunction. It will also delay the drying process and will cost more. If you need to turn off equipment for any reason, talk with our technician or call us on 0800 862 538.
