Anywhere that there is moisture is a potential growth area.

It can be in the air and it can grow on a number of surfaces and is not always bad. It can be part of cheese, part of wine and part of many medications. But can have negative consequences.

For most people there are two areas where they should care about mould.


    • Mould can affect the health of many people but it’s infants, pregnant ladies and the elderly that are likely to be most affected.
    • Health implications can range from serious illness and chronic lung conditions to slight sensitivities (anything from throat or nose irritation through to coughing and wheezing.)
    • Mould can also cause shortness of breath and asthma.

    • There are a number of ways that it can infest your home. It can get in through doorways, vents and air conditioning systems. It’s generally found in areas with a lot of moisture such as roofs, windows and pipes. Flood damage can also cause mould growth. It can damage your files (paper and cardboard) and wood products. It’s also known to damage plaster walls, wallpaper, carpet, fabric and upholstery.
    • Mould is naturally occurring and anywhere that moisture grows is an area ripe for mould infestation. It’s not always bad but it can have negative health consequences.
    • If you have a mould infestation inside your house it’s important that you get it treated properly and ensure that areas are treated to ensure that fungal growth doesn’t return.
