Where Does Mould Come From?

Where Does Mould Come From?

Mould is found naturally in our environment and is introduced indoors on clothing, shoes and through the windows if they’re left open. They normally require damp, dark conditions to thrive. With a regular cleaning schedule these types of introduced mould do not cause problems indoors. If they aren’t removed with regular vacuuming and dusting however, they are more likely to begin growing and infiltrating the structures in your property. Following heavy rainfall, an indoor flooding event or high indoor humidity, mould is more likely to grow as it has its key ingredients readily available – water and organic material.

Is Mould Harmful?

If left untreated, mould has been found to be harmful. Some potential side effects from mould exposure includes throat and nose irritation, itchy eyes, irritated skin and in some cases it can exacerbate or trigger asthma. Four of the most common types of household mould are Aspergillus, Cladosporium, Penicillium and Stachybotrys Chartarum. With professional mould removal for large amounts of mould growth in your property you should be able to have your property restored to pre loss condition. If the mould has infiltrated the structures beyond the surface in multiple areas of your house, the structures may need to be replaced. This is because the mould growth will weaken the structures and continue to grow if it isn’t removed.

How Do I Get Rid Of Mould?

In order to get rid of mould you should call a professional mould removalist. If there is small amounts of mould on a small object, food items or other organic materials it can be cleaned with DIY methods or disposed of. For large amounts of mould you should always phone a professional mould cleaner. With IICRC certified technicians, a professional mould removalist will conduct mould sampling tests and conduct the appropriate remediation work to restore your property. If you suspect there is mould in your property, we would not recommend trying to clean the mould with DIY methods. This is because there could be residual mold in the structures, leading to further complications and costs in the future.
