Damp and Mould Can Affect Health and Property.

Mould cleanup is required to fight damp and mould which can adversely affect your health and property. Occupants of a home that is damp and has mould, are more likely to have their immune system affected and develop respiratory infections, allergies, or asthma. The home and property may also suffer structural damage and loss. Bio-Cleanse Pty Ltd. can help with mould cleaning, mould removal, and water damage restoration.

What Is Damp and Mould?

Damp is usually caused by excess moisture in a building. The excess moisture makes its way inside the property, either from outside or from condensation that has formed within the building. This is dangerous as damp and humid conditions are perfect conditions for mould to grow.
Mould is a common type of fungus that can be found widely in the natural environment – both indoors and outdoors. Mould grows or develops in damp and humid conditions. It can vary in appearance depending on how serious the mould infection is. Mould produces spores which can become airborne, allowing the mould to spread, keep reproducing, and grow.

Who Is Affected by Damp and Mould?

Moulds produce allergens, irritants, and toxic substances. Inhaling or touching mould spores can cause allergic reactions. Contact with mould spores can also leave anyone more susceptible to developing a range of different health conditions.
Mould exposure should be avoided as it is not healthy for anyone. However, some people may be more sensitive than others. People more vulnerable to mould and need to take extra precautions to avoid contact with mould include babies, children, elderly people, and those with existing skin problems, respiratory problems, or an already weakened immune system.

Ill Effects of Mould Spores on Health.

Respiratory problems are a common complaint among those exposed to mould spores or living in mouldy environments. Mould can cause sneezing and a runny nose. Some of the more specific respiratory infection symptoms include mild fever, trouble breathing, coughing, a scratchy or sore throat, wheezing, and tightness in the chest. Anyone already suffering from respiratory conditions and having an allergy to mould can experience more frequent and serious asthma attacks.
Anyone prone to skin breakouts can be affected. Skin rashes and skin conditions are caused by allergic reactions to mould spores. This allergic reaction can affect individuals already suffering from eczema, as well as those who don’t have an underlying skin condition. Some symptoms of skin allergies are dry, red, and cracked skin, hives, and conjunctivitis.

Mould Can Cause Damage to Homes and Property.

Homes that have encountered mould contamination can have structural issues. Mould can also destroy personal belongings.
Mould causes structural damage such as damaging floorboards and insulation. Mould spores consume organic and various other materials in the home, which can eventually lead to the destruction of these materials in the building. The home can even be deemed uninhabitable in extreme cases where mould is not treated for a long period of time.

Mould spores easily settle into materials and often go unnoticed. It can be very difficult to remove mould spores from affected furniture, clothing, or other belongings. It may be best to dispose of the mould-contaminated items.
Mould may present itself even in the HVAC systems of your home. The HVAC systems could get blocked due to moisture. HVAC systems play an important role in the functioning of a home and property. However, due to the constricted size of the space, it may be tricky to treat mould in this area of the house.
