How to Find Out If You Need Mold Removal From Your Plasterboard

A recent customer of Moulding New Zealand (Mojic) had a large plaster wall installed in a commercial property in Wellington that took two and a half days to remove. When the plasterboard went missing, the mojic company sent a high pressure water jet cutter to deal with the problem. The cutter cut through the plasterboard almost as if it were Styrofoam and the result was a large black stain that has been left to settle on the plasterboard for over a month. This has resulted in the wall now needing to be re-installed and a moulding specialist in Wellington has been deployed to do a mould testing in order to ensure the strength and durability of the new wall surface.

The problem this time was that the water was not coming from a pipe; the original plasterboard had been removed, probably during the mopping process, leaving a gap where the moisture was getting in. Obviously there would be a lot of rainwater penetrating the wall, which could get in the interior of the plasterboard. To test this theory, the moulding specialists got mould on the undersides of the boards and inside the edges of the gaps. It was obvious that water got in this way, even when there was no water harm. This was confirmed by a few photos taken by the photographer at different stages of the project showing the mould growing on the boards. The photo below shows one example of the mould getting inside the wall:

The mould was obviously going to be green, since there were no visible signs of mold on the outside, but what was not so clear was the level of mould inconvenience; it has taken a very long time to repair the plasterboard. It is a good thing that the movie company that did the job sent someone with a camera to take the picture because this is what confirms the fact that there was definitely mould and it’s problem. This mould testing will now allow companies to know if their plasterboard is at risk of a mould hassle, even before they actually have to deal with the problem. It may be too late to get the plasterboard repaired before it becomes a huge disaster, but it will never cost more than its worth to do it right the first time.
