What is mould?
Mould is a type of fungi, in the same family as mushrooms, that is widespread in the environment. Mould can grow in your home in damp areas, especially where there is inadequate ventilation. There is a much higher risk of mould growing and spreading in humid areas, after periods of heavy rain, after water damage, or if there has been flooding. It is common to find mould growing in bathrooms, in laundries, under sinks and on window sills where there is condensation. If moisture builds up inside the home, mould may grow on furniture. Mould can also be found growing and spread via air conditioning systems within the home. If you can smell a musty smell in an area of your home, there is a high chance that mould is growing.
Who is most at risk from mould?
There are many different types of mould that have the potential to make people sick. People most at risk from mould include:
- People with asthma
- People who suffer from allergies and hay fever
- Young children and babies
- The elderly
- People with weakened immune systems
- People with lung conditions
What are the health effects of mould?
Mould has the potential to trigger a range of health problems, including:
- Runny or blocked nose
- Eye or skin irritation
- Respiratory infections
- Inhalation of mould spores can trigger asthma attacks
It is difficult to tell one type of mould from the other, therefore it is important to remove and control any mould growth in your home, whether you are an owner occupier or in a rental property. In addition to the negative health effects of mould, it can also damage the surfaces it grows on.
How can I reduce the risk of mould in my home?
Where ever possible, try to prevent mould by:
- Always using exhaust fans when cooking, washing and showering.
- Ensure ventilation when using clothes dryers.
- When the weather permits, open windows to allow fresh air ventilation.

- Limit the use of humidifiers.
- Ensure fresh air ventilation when using evaporative coolers.

How does San-Air work?
San-Air Mould Remover Spray Can be used on hard or soft surfaces for treatment and general cleaning. As the product comes into contact with mould, spores and bacteria, it causes the mould to die by stopping it from receiving oxygen, eliminating its ability to grow and reproduce. It is safe to use on most household surfaces including timer, tiles, curtains, canvas, leather, vinyl and more. After cleaning, we recommend a second light spray on the treated surfaces. Allow to dry, and this will provide ongoing protection for another 4-5 months.
San-Air Mould Gone Gel This water-based gel evaporates into the air and spreads throughout the indoor air space. When the product comes into contact with microbes in the air or on surfaces, it eliminates their ability to grow and reproduce. Kills 99% of airborne mould, fungus, bacteria and spores.
San-Air Split System Bioclean Gel. This gel is especially designed to be used in split system air conditioners. The water-based gel evaporates and continuously sanitises the internal parts of the machine while decontaminating incoming and outgoing airflow.

San-Air Mould Removal Products are an extremely safe, cost effective and independently validated method of getting rid of mould in your house or office.
