Mould and mildew exist when there is moisture in the home. Dark, damp spaces are the perfect breeding grounds for these airborne spores. If you have issues with rising damp or excess moisture, your home probably has mould and mildew. Although many of the spores are harmless, many types of mould and mildew are toxic. These toxic species can lead to allergies, asthma, respiratory problems, wheezing, immunological problems, and more. In order to protect your family and your home, you need to act quickly to eradicate moisture in order to prevent the growth of mould and mildew.
How Mould and Mildew Grow
Both mould and mildew are types of fungi. Worldwide, there are more than 1.5M estimated species of mould and mildew. These fungi flourish in damp, dark areas, like subfloor spaces, basements, ceiling spaces, and other areas of the home. Where there is moisture, mould and mildew will eventually grow. They can be found on visible areas like walls and ceilings, but can also exist in hidden areas, like the subfloor. The only way of identifying and eradicating issues in these areas is with the help of professionals. That’s where Nationwide Subfloor Ventilation comes in.
