Why has my house got mould?
Mould and dampness in houses are caused by excess moisture. This may be due to leaking pipes or rain ingress through, for example, a hole in the roof. Everyday activities, such as cooking and showering, can also contribute to mould. If there isn’t adequate ventilation, a build-up of condensation creates the perfect conditions for mould to grow.
What is mould?
Mould is a type of fungus that can grow both indoors and outdoors. It can be found in a variety of places, including on food, in the air, and on surfaces. Like other fungi, mould produces spores that float in the air until they settle in an agreeably damp spot where they begin to grow. Mould spores are present everywhere and can be persistent even in conditions where mould cannot grow. However, the key to mould control for your home is to ensure that you keep the environment dry and moisture-free.
Where can mould grow in my home?
Mould can grow on almost any surface in the home, including wood, paper, carpet, porous tiles and food. As mould grows, it can digest the material it is growing on, causing damage. Outdoors, mould is often found in soil, decaying leaves, or grass. Indoors, mould is most commonly found in damp, dark, or humid areas, such as basements, bathrooms, or laundry rooms.
What health problems can mould cause?
Mould is unsightly and can cause a range of health problems, from minor skin irritation to more serious respiratory infections. Some people are more susceptible to the effects of mould than others, and certain health conditions, such as asthma or allergies, can be exacerbated by exposure to it. Mould may contribute to the production of bacteria and microbes that may activate an inflammatory response that increases the threat of fungal and bronchial infections. Moulds that are a problem for health are categorised as:
- Allergenic (allergy-causing) – produces an allergic reaction to those with sensitivities to it
- Pathogenic (disease-causing) – causes infection in people with underlying medical conditions
- Toxigenic (poisonous) – may lead to serious health problems
If you suspect a mould problem in your home, it is vital to have it remediated as soon as possible. If you have mould, you may not even be aware of it, as it can often be hidden behind walls or under floorboards. If you have any of the above health problems, it is worth investigating whether mould could be the cause.
How to Deal with Mould
The best way of dealing with mould is to prevent it from growing in the first place. Keep your home dry and leak-free. Be sure to keep it well-ventilated and open windows if you have a steamy kitchen or after a shower to let steam escape.
Cleaning your home will not get rid of mould. If you have mould, NocoSpray is one of the most effective ways of getting rid of it. Not only can it remove unsightly mould, but it prevents it from returning.
NocoSpray is a two-part system comprising the NocoSpray appliance and the NocoLyse solution it disseminates. NocoLyse is a microbial solution that destroys moulds, spores and other microbes using a patented technology that releases vapourised hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) into the air. The vapour permeates every nook and cranny in an enclosed space—even those difficult-to-reach places that manual cleaning can miss.
NocoSpray offers you the dual advantage of infection control and mould control for your home—all at the touch of a button. The system is easy to operate—just place it in the centre of a room, select the cycle and press ‘start’. A short pause allows you to leave the room, ensuring windows and doors are shut before the appliance begins its process. In around 30 minutes, the room is disinfected and ready for use again.
