What is Mould?

Black mould (Stachybotrys)

Mould problems are more commonplace that you think with around 1 in 5 British homes suffering from issues with condensation or black mould. Just like embarrassing bodies, mould is an embarrassment that no homeowner wants to shout about.

Removing mould can be problematic, yes you can paint over it but unless you remove the root cause it will only come back to haunt you time and time again. So what exactly is mould?

Mould under the microscope

Mould is a microscopic organism that requires the following to grow:

  • Any organic material (for example, wood or paper)
  • Oxygen
  • Moisture

Mould usually destroys whatever it grows on as it gradually digests it. Mould also releases tiny spores that can travel through the air; these spores often have mycotoxins and allergens attached to them. It is the mycotoxins and allergens that can affect our health and cause allergic reactions.
