Unfortunately some of us over our lifetime will experience the effects of water damage to our houses or business premises as a result of storm or floods. Not only is the water damage to the contents and the structure of the property one thing to contend with but also the by product of water damage which is mould and bacteria. However large amounts of water are not the only perfect havens for mould and bacteria to grow but consistent dampness too.
What is mould?
Mould is a fungal growth that multiplies in situations where there is dampness, moisture, darkness and poor airflow. It appears as spores that resemble black dots and the most common areas in the house that provide perfect conditions for mould to grow are:
- Basements and garages
- Walls and wall cavities
- Window sills
- Air-conditioning systems
At times of flood, burst pipes or consistent leaks, mould can readily attach to floors and inside walls.
Why call in a professional to get rid of mould?
Toxic substances produced by mould are called mycotoxins and mould is well known to cause a large number of health issues if not removed quickly. Some serious illnesses and allergies that can occur as a result of exposure to mould include:
- Dermatitis and skin rashes
- Sinus problems
- Watery, red and itchy eyes
Mould can produce chemicals that suppress your immune system so its removal is of paramount importance to protect the health and wellbeing of family members and workers. Air con cleaning to eradicate mould is a priority along with regular checks as air conditioners are often housed in humid conditions and kept out of sight.
