Mould – a Common Problem​

If you think you have mould in your property, is important to contact the right people immediately to handle the situation. Professionals like Bio-Cleanse are trained in this field. They can help tackle the mould growth within your home and reduce potential hazards associated with it.

As part of the mould inspection protocol, a thorough check of the building is done for any evidence of water damage and visible mould. Conditions causing mould growth like water leaks, flooding, infiltration or condensation are identified. Environmental and surface sampling will help establish the levels of contamination in all areas.

Based on the sampling results, the mould technicians will be able to decide on what to do or what is recommended for the situation at hand. They will take into consideration any factors that led to the present condition, the building’s characteristics and the physical inspection of the contaminated area. A plan will then be formulated by the mould specialists to clean and decontaminate the affected as well as surrounding areas, to avoid any cross contamination or transfer contamination.

Appropriate remediation and restoration needs to be looked into to prevent future mould growth. The mould remediation team should tell you in advance what they will do or what their recommendations are based on the sampling results.

Keeping Mould Out of Buildings and Homes​

Exposure to damp and mouldy environments can cause a variety of health effects. Mould reproduces through tiny particles called spores that are carried in the air and end up being inhaled by the occupants of the building.

Initial exposure to moulds can lead to mild symptoms ranging from itchy eyes, irritation of the skin, blocked or running nose, and wheezing.

If mould spores are inhaled by people who are sensitive or allergic to mould or have other breathing conditions, it may cause serious health problems. For example, people with asthma may suffer an asthma attack. Workers exposed to large amounts of moulds at their occupational settings, like farmers working around mouldy hay, may suffer more severe reactions. These may include fever and shortness of breath.

Persons with weakened immune systems like cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, people with HIV infection, those who has received an organ transplant, as well as anyone with chronic lung diseases such as emphysema and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) are more at risk of mould infection particularly in their lungs.

Mould Can Affect the Health of Anyone Living in Mould Affected Areas

Mould is a natural part of our environment and the ecosystem. It can grow on virtually any substance, mostly in wet or moist indoor areas that lack adequate ventilation. Mould is basically a fungi and can be present virtually anywhere – indoors and outdoors. It reproduces by creating tiny spores that usually cannot be seen unless magnified. These mould spores then float in the air and spread around.

Different types of mould exists, some having the potential to cause health problems. Outdoor mould helps to break down organic matter and thus plays an important part in nature. Mould growth in indoor areas however should be avoided at all costs. Mould starts eating away at materials and makes the living areas look and smell bad. Prolonged mould growth can even affect the structural integrity of the buildings.

Mould becomes a problem when mould spores land on a damp area and begin to grow. In order to survive, these spores digest whatever they land on. All moulds share a common characteristic of being able to grow without sunlight. Mould only needs a viable spore or seed, a nutrient source, moisture and the right temperature to rapidly increase in number. Some moulds can grow on everyday dust and dirt gathered in moist areas of a building. There are other moulds that grow on foods, paper, wood, carpet, and even on insulation.
