Hdb ceiling/wall bug

What bug is this? Doesn't look like termite or booklice, all over my wall/ceiling

Their baby version looks like mold mites

You know anyone who experienced this before? Did they ask for mould removal services?

Try to use finger to scare them. Do they jump? If they jump they are called the spring tail. They feed on mould. Do a full house painting using anti mould paint. Subsequently research n maintain the moisture at home (there are many strategies). If can, once every quarter wipe your walls with anti mould agents. But test a small area first... Coz the dust of your wall may be smeared by the cloth n make your walls look dirty.

I got small tidy little bugs on my ceiling. Really tidy that u need to really go close to see it.

What I did was use a cloth and bleach to wipe. Think is the mold. Canít be prevented since sg is so humid. But i mitigated it by asking my dad to help me paint using the nipping anti mould ceiling paint.

One thing for sure is, only ceiling will kena. Not the walls.

If u don't do anything about it, all walls will be mouldy soon n they will crawl to walls once their population too big.

You know why? Cos of the paint...

Usually Painters will use using cheap matex for ceiling... just go get a good 5L Nippon paint with anti-mould , I repainted my ceiling and no longer comes back.
