Health problems are being associated with the existence of mould in the home
Recent evidence appears to back up the theory that mould and mildew within the home or office can negatively affect our health by provoking cold and flu-like symptoms and may even be the cause of other types of allergies and respiratory complaints.
Anyone with any sort of breathing ailment such as asthma, bronchitis, wheezing or other conditions, as well as the very young and elderly, tend to be most at risk. Symptoms such as sneezing, runny noses, sore throats, difficulties breathing and even rashes may be indicative that you have a mould problem in your home or business premises. If these reactions are caused by mould, the symptoms will not go away until you treat and eliminate the underlying condition.
If you do notice mould or mildew growing anywhere in your house, try not to touch or disturb it or you may unwittingly cause the spores to spread to uncontaminated surfaces meaning your mould problem will get worse. The sooner you call in our expert mould removal technicians at Steamatic, the sooner we can start to contain and remove the problem. There is no need to panic or evacuate your premises but mould really is an issue where it is better to take remedial action sooner, rather than later.
The most common causes for the appearance of mould are damp areas and flooding. When fungi finds an organic food source and water it rapidly grows and spreads and may even continue to proliferate behind ceiling panels, dry walls and in other unseen areas. Fungi gives off numerous very light, very vigorous spores which will quickly create new contaminated areas where the conditions are right for growth.
