You might be wondering why it’s so important to remove mould and prevent reoccurrence in your domestic or business environments. In order to answer that question you first need to understand what mould is and what the potential health risks involved are.
What is mould?
Mould is a fungal growth caused by mould spores which are always present in the air and are a common component of home and workplace dust. However, under the right conditions of dampness, darkness and poor ventilation: e.g. bathrooms or kitchens, cluttered storage or basement areas, flooded areas, plumbing pipes and outdoors in humid environments, mould can spread quickly on its surroundings.
Walls, timber, carpet, furniture and fabrics can harbour mould if they stay damp for extended periods of time. And with prolonged mould exposure a lot of these items would require replacement, which is a time consuming and costly exercise to say the least. Along with the above issues your health could be affected, especially for asthmatics. Below are some of the health issues associated with mould growth.
Health Effects of mould
Not all people are adversely affected by mould. However it can emit particles that may cause some people to sneeze. This is not necessarily an allergy; like a dust storm, it is a reaction to the particles in the air. Often, moulds can also release a musty odour which can be disagreeable.
Toxic moulds produce mycotoxins that can pose serious health risks. Some studies claimed that exposure to high levels of mycotoxins can lead to neurological problems and in some cases death. Prolonged exposure may be particularly harmful. Research in this area has not been conclusive.
Symptoms caused by mould allergy may include:
- Respiratory illness or asthma;
- Watery, itchy, red eyes;
- Chronic cough;
- Headaches or migraines;
- Rashes (dermatitis);
- Sinus problems, blocked nose; and
- Frequent sneezing;
