Stop mould moving further
Moulds grow throughout the natural and built environment. In nature, moulds serve a purpose. Indoors, mould can grow and multiply causing health problems and property damage.
Mould growth can occur as a result of flooding, sewer backups, plumbing and roof leaks. Mould persists in poorly ventilated areas such as damp basements, bathrooms and kitchens. Not all mould looks the same – there are many different species in a variety of colours and textures. If left untreated, mould can be destructive to property and poses significant health risks to people. Allergy sufferers, small children and the elderly are most susceptible to the dangerous effects of mould contaminants.
Mould spores are a common occurrence in household and workplace dust. When mould spores are present in large quantities, they can present a serious health hazard causing allergic reactions and respiratory problems. Some moulds can also produce mycotoxins that can lead to neurological problems and in some cases, death.
