Reduce Humidity, Moisture And Mould

 In Home Care Tips

Dampness is one of the most common causes of poor indoor air in homes, classrooms and public spaces, because moisture promotes the growth of mould and dust mites.


To prevent mould, fix any moisture problems right away and control humidity levels in your home. If you already have mould, it’s important to clean it up right away.


What is mould?

Mould is the common word for any fungus that grows on food or damp building materials. It often looks like a stain and comes in a variety of colours. In some cases, however, mould may not be visible but may have a musty odour. If it is allowed to grow, mould can contribute to poor indoor air quality.


Mould can grow in damp or wet areas in your home caused by water leaks, flooding, or high humidity that can result from everyday activities like cooking or showering. It can grow on wood, paper, fabrics, drywall and insulation. It can hide inside walls or above ceiling tiles. When mould finds a damp place to grow, it can contribute to poor indoor air quality and health problems.
