Where does mould grow?

In order for mould to grow it requires water (or high humidity), food, and a temperature between 40-100 degree Fahrenheit. Mould can grow on a wide range of materials within your house such as wood, drywall, and even paint.

Mould is often found in rooms with higher levels of humidity and increased risk of leaks such as basements, kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms. It's important to regularly use exhaust fans when cooking or showering to help keep these rooms mould free. The use of dehumidifiers to keep humidity below 60% will also greatly reduce your chances of developing mould issues.

How to Deal With a Mould Problem

If you think there's a problem with mould in your building, the first thing to do is have a knowledgeable company out to do a survey of your property. They can help you determine if there's a mould problem, and the extent of the issue.

The process of cleaning mould stirs up spores that can quickly contaminate buildings and create air quality problems. This is why it's crucial that a reputable company performs your mould remediation. The last thing you want is for the mould spores to spread to other areas of your office and create problems down the road.

Because unchecked mould can lead to serious structural damage, as well as compromise the health of people within the building, it's important to deal with mould as soon as possible. In addition to removing all mould growth, it's essential to deal with any potential sources of moisture - such as leaks or high levels of humidity - in order to keep your building mould-free.

When Mould is an Issue

Moulds are simple microscopic organisms that can be found everywhere in our environment. There are 20,000 different types of mould - a common problem in British Columbia. It can often be difficult to see the full extent of a mould problem. ​While some mould spores are expected to be found in every area of our environment, high concentrations of mould spores found indoors can cause major health problems.

Health issues associated with high concentrations of mould spores include asthmatic and allergic symptoms, such as a runny or stuffy nose, respiratory issues, itchy eyes, skin problems, and headaches. Other potential symptoms of mould illness include muscle and joint pain, gastrointestinal issues, anxiety, and even depression. While the health issues related to working in a mould contaminated environment is incentive enough to deal with your mould problem, ignoring mould growth can lead to structural damage over time. Because mould feeds on and breaks down organic materials, such as the wooden frame of your home or building, ignoring mould problems can lead to compromised structural integrity.
