How mould can be affecting your home (and health)

As of recently, more news has been circulating about mould in homes and the affects this can have on your health.

Mould can be found in various areas of your home such as your carpets, upholstery, tiles and split systems. And all this can pose significant health concerns that unfortunately remain largely unnoticed by many. In this blog post, we will explore the potential dangers of mould infestations and the importance of raising awareness about the impact it can have on our health.

First of all, what is mould?

Mould is a type of fungus that loves to hide out in damp and humid conditions. This therefore makes it a common invader in our homes. The spores on the mould can travel through the air and settle in various areas which then creates a great breeding ground for mould to grow and reproduce. It usually remains hidden behind walls, under carpets, or within uncommon of our homes, and when left unchecked, it can be quite detrimental to our health.

Types of health Concerns associated with mould

While some individuals may not be as visibly affected by mould, others are more susceptible to its harmful effects. Prolonged exposure to mould can lead to various health issues, especially for those with allergies, asthma, or weakened immune systems. Some of the health concerns associated with mould infestations include:

  • Respiratory Issues
  • Allergic Reactions
  • Asthma Aggravation
  • Infections

How to stay on top of mould?

Even though it has a lot of potential dangers, many of us either don’t fully understand or aren’t aware of how serious of an issue it can be. This is why it’s so important to learn how to stay on top of mould and what to look out for as this all helps to prevent future health problems from happening.  To assist with the process here are some common steps that we recommend:

Regular Inspections: Schedule regular inspections to identify if there’s any mould growth in your home and in particular in damp areas

Prompt Action: If mould is detected, you should immediately look to address it. Finding the source of the moisture to prevent future infestations is key

Professional Cleaning: Engage in professional cleaning services, such as steam carpet cleaning from a reputable cleaning company that specialises in mould removal and remediation to ensure thorough cleaning. In case you were wondering, Wizard Cleaning® offers exactly that!

Maintain Indoor Humidity: The use of dehumidifiers and having proper ventilation to maintain optimal indoor humidity levels can help to prevent or slow down mould growth

Having mould in our homes can be a real problem. It’s also something that can be more wide-spread than you realise. For this reason, it’s important that it receives our attention as well as thoughtful planning. With the potential health risks involved, it’s best to remain on top of mould as best as possible. This involves taking steps such as understanding the dangers associated with mould and taking the right actions required in order to create a safe and healthy living space for not just ourselves, but our loved ones also.
