Mould: what it means for property managers

Recorded on 9 April 2019

Mould is increasingly becoming an issue for property managers. But what are the facts? 

With mould being a key reason for tenants breaking their leases, it’s critical that property managers understand what causes mould, how to prevent it and what to do if a tenant notifies you of mould in a property.

To help you better manage tenant fears and expectations about mould and protect your landlords’ investments, join Stephen Burke, Director and Senior Mould Inspector at Mould Removal Australia, Michelle McLean and Chris Carey as they myth-bust mould.

Topics covered include:

  • What are the facts: what is mould and where did it come from?
  • How can you prevent mould?
  • Can you test for mould?
  • Do dehumidifiers help?
  • How do you clean up and remove mould?
  • What is the outcome of the Government Inquiry into mould?
