BACS provides business-to-business mould treatment and technial cleaning services in laboratories, storage rooms, computer rooms, server rooms, comms rooms, data centres and other controlled environments. This service is available nationwide including Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Canberra, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart and Darwin as well as most regional areas.

Mould (mildew) is a fungus which reproduces via tiny spores that float through the air and deposit on surfaces. When temperature and moisture levels are right, spores grow into mould colonies. Mould is part of nature and occurs almost everywhere; however, exposure to mould indoors can adversely affect human health. We do not provide mould cleaning services to residential properties.


Mould growth is typically less of a problem in facilities and rooms where CRAC units control relative humidity to 45% - 55%. Mould can easily occur in a room when an air conditioning unit is either leaking or causing condensation to form on walls and other solid structures. All moisture-tolerant ceiling, wall, floor, and where applicable, sub-floor surfaces must be treated with a mould-killing chemical. Where applicable, ensure that the chemical is suitable for use around electronic equipment.


Because mould is a WHS issue, initial remediation and replacement of heavily-affected materials should be done as soon as mould growth is detected to reduce its spread and clean-up costs. Follow-up treatments may be required to fully arrest its growth. Repainting of cleaned surfaces could be needed to cover any discolouration remaining on walls after treatment.
