What is mould?
Moulds are a type of fungi: a group of organisms including mushrooms and yeast, which are ubiquitous in an outdoor environment. Mould spores enter the home from the outdoors. If there is a source of moisture inside your home, mould spores will land on the surface and begin to grow.
Why is mould a health concern?
During growth, some types of mould release mycotoxins, which can provoke allergic reactions in some people. Typical symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, red and itchy eyes and dermatitis (skin rash). If building materials such as drywall are wet for more than 24-48 hours, there is a high potential for mould growth.
