Got Mould? Let’s Help You Fix It

Interior mould growth is now being considered a significant health hazard. The word mould is mostly used to refer to a form of fungi that grows on building materials and other things at home.

Mould mostly prefers damp conditions which helps them to grow and spread. Therefore, identifying the source of moisture is very important when it comes to completely fixing mould issues. Here are a few facts to keep in mind

People living in damp conditions with mould are more likely to suffer different kinds of infections.
The infections range from the build-up of phlegm and coughing, irritation of the nose, throat, and eyes, shortness of breath and wheezing, as well as worsening symptoms of asthma.
Although moulds can affect any person, some people with respiratory problems appear more susceptible than others.
Professional services such as those provided by Toxic Mould, provide expert mould removal and dampness solutions.
Identifying The Source Of Moisture
Indoor moulds will grow as long as moisture problems last. Here are some sources or causes of indoor moisture:

Moisture condensing on cold surfaces.
Leakages in plumbing work.
Poor ventilation in the building.
Flooding as a result of weather conditions.
Water infiltration coming in from outside through cracks or leaks in the walls or roof, floor, or even the foundation.
Daily activities like warm showers, warm laundry, and broken down exhaust fans can worsen the problem.

Anytime indoor moisture isn’t vented outside, it accumulates and becomes an issue when
it dampens building materials.
