Algae and Mold Removal Service, Singapore
If you want to free your business or residence from the creeping spread of mold, professional attention is necessary. Our team at Le Fong will find and eliminate mold where it appears, clean the air of the microscopic spores that it uses to reproduce and take active steps to prevent mold issues from occurring again.
Amateur efforts at mold eradication in Singapore are unlikely to eliminate the mold, and attempts by inexperienced people to tackle the problem themselves can end up damaging the surfaces within the home. These efforts may still be unsuccessful in removing the entirety of the mold in the area, opening the door to a renewed effort by the mold to spread through the property and exacerbate the original problem.
Our experienced field workers represent the natural choice for expert mold removal in Singapore. We use the best and most effective mold removal technique available for most situations. It meets the problem directly, taking immediate steps to erase mold from your property and prevent its return.
Kill Fungi, Mold, Algae
- It kills fungi at its root
- Locates & suspends
- Fast working solution
- High Performance
Fungi Buster is the ultimate solution to your fungi/mold problems. It is a unique formulation that penetrates into your substrates to locate the roots of fungi, mold and algae for complete removal. Traditional cleaners can only clean dirt but cannot kill fungi spores, and this effectively worsens the issue as cleaning/wiping spreads the spores around your substrates. Fungi Buster does more than just clean. Our unique formulation suspends foreign particles and powerfully removes them from their roots. This kills fungi spores deeply. Just wash off after a few minutes, and the surface will look good as new. Even darkened concrete can restore whiteness in a matter of seconds.
- Ensure treated areas are clear of debris and oil.
- Brush apply/spray onto substrate generously.
- The effect should take place within a minute.
- Rinse thoroughly and scrub off to remove excess.
Safety & Storage:
Avoid eye and hand contact. Store away from sunlight. Use within one month of purchase.

The Mold Removal Process
Our mold experts will come to your property and diagnose the source of mold through visual inspection. With the assistance of moisture and humidity meters, we will trace any moisture findings back to the head and notify you of our results, then give you detailed advice on the best way to stop the root cause of the mold in its tracks. This will be followed by a detailed report on our findings and diagnosis, along with recommendations for possible and realistic preventative actions and cures. If required, we can take air samples and swab samples and send them to the lab for incubation and culturing to determine mold counts and species.
We need to stop any direct sources that may be occurring, such as subfloor water seepage, leaking pipes, leaking roof, leaking ceiling, and leaking gutters. We will advise you on what needs to be done after our inspection. The moisture inside the house should not be dried prior to removal of the mold as the air movers will promote the spreading of the mold spores.
The process starts with a mist spray of our non-toxic, non-hazardous mold removal agent. This chemical consists of totally natural ingredients and is a hospital-grade disinfectant. The chemical is completely safe for asthmatics and allergy sufferers. Our unique chemical will kill mold at the spore, and it also has a residual effect that will help prevent future mold growth on any surface to which it is applied. This product is then spread across all surfaces to ensure that all areas have been treated. Extra scrubbing will take place where there is visible mold. HEPA vacuums are used to extract mold spores from all soft furnishings, floors and carpets. Whilst all of this is taking place, we have 4 stage air purifiers operating that capture 99.5% of airborne mold spores and bacteria. This is a key element in mold removal as we are actually capturing the mold spores, not just killing them. Dead mold spores are just as toxic as live mold spores, and they are actually a food source for mold spores.
4. Dry Out
If moisture is evident, it must be dried out. We have air movers (blowers) and dehumidifiers which we will bring to the site to dry out the building to ensure that your building structure is dry. Otherwise, the mold will continue to grow. You mustn’t try and dry out the infected areas prior to the mold being removed, as you may help spread mold spores further.
Now it is time to make sure that our mold removal is permanent. This can only be achieved if the original root cause has been rectified. We will advise you on what needs to be done to achieve this.The most common preventative maintenance requirements are Subfloor ventilation, rising damp treatment, drainage improvements, the introduction of dehumidifiers, repair of guttering and downpipes, and improving overall ventilation, cutting back of trees, and bathroom ventilation, just to name a few.
How Mold Can Affect Your Health
Molds have the potential to cause health problems. molds produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, toxic substances. Inhaling or touching mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive people. Allergic reactions to mold are common, and they can be immediate or delayed.
Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold. In addition, mold exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people. Symptoms other than the allergic and irritant types are not commonly reported as a result of inhaling mold.
Actions that will reduce moisture
- When water leaks or spills occur indoors – ACT QUICKLY. If wet or damp materials or areas are dried 24-48 hours after a leak or spill happens, in most cases, mold will not grow.
- Clean and repair roof gutters regularly.
- Make sure the ground slopes away from the building foundation so that water does not enter or collect around the foundation.
- Keep air conditioning drip pans clean and the drain lines unobstructed and flowing properly.
- Keep indoor humidity low. If possible, keep indoor humidity below 60 % (ideally between 30 and 50 %) relative humidity.
- If you see condensation or moisture collecting on windows, walls or pipes, ACT QUICKLY to dry the wet surface and reduce the moisture/water source. Condensation can be a sign of high humidity.
Actions That Will Help Reduce Humidity
- Vent appliances that produce moisture, such as clothes dryers and stoves, when possible.
- Use air conditioners and/or dehumidifiers when needed.
- Run the bathroom fan or open the window when showering. Use exhaust fans or open windows whenever cooking, running the dishwasher or dishwashing, etc.
Actions That Will Help Prevent Condensation
- Reduce the humidity.
- Increase ventilation or air movement by opening doors and/or windows when practical. Use fans as needed.
- Cover cold surfaces, such as cold water pipes, with insulation.
- Increase air temperature.

Even though protection for masonry buildings is still entrusted to the use of textured paint and coating products, thermal insulation systems are becoming increasingly widespread. Apart from offering protection from bad weather, they help contain energy losses, which are both costly and increase the level of CO2 emissions. This type of system, however, which has been adopted for several decades, needs to be maintained, and sometimes particular maintenance interventions are required. In the worst cases, the entire system may need to be removed entirely and replaced.
In the case of normal maintenance, or if the damage or deterioration has been identified in time, it is possible to carry out repairs using technologically suitable products, and if applied by skilled workers, the intervention will be reliable, durable and economically advantageous.
It is within this context that a new product with exclusive, versatile characteristics has been successfully used to carry out repair and maintenance work that is efficient and has an aesthetically pleasing finish.
