Health Benefits of Removing Mould

Health Benefits of Removing Mould 

What are the best health benefits of removing mould? When removing something as contagious and troublesome as mould, you may notice minor but pleasant changes to your property as well as your overall health! For example, your lungs may benefit from this cleaning by enjoying cleaner air quality. Mould is known to cause irritations that contribute to breathing issues, skin itchiness and eye problems. These qualities make a property slowly but surely become less inhabitable over time.  

How is mould first noticed? 

Mould can usually be recognised as a spot on the wall, or as a musky smell in areas which may have less ventilation. It can reside on all types of surfaces, or even be hidden between wall cracks. 

Don’t hesitate cleaning mould no matter how small it may be. The main issue lies in that it can spread through microscopic spores all over the house without you knowing. Pretty soon, you may feel like your house is causing you discomfort through “stuffy air” and allergies. As every individual reacts to mould differently, so removing mould is always a smart option when cleaning a property.  

Symptoms of a possible mould allergy include: 

  • Irritated eyes 
  • Wheezing or a cough. 
  • A runny or blocked nose 
  • Sneezing 
  • Dry skin 

Along with providing many health benefits, removing mould also has many aesthetic advantages for you and your property! Don’t settle for having mould spots slowly grow and creep into the corners of your home, vehicle or materials! You and your tenants only deserve the best! To achieve this outcome, we always highly recommend booking a professional mould inspection and cleaning to be sure of no mould growth on your property. The benefits of having a professional mould inspection report are that you will be able to fully understand what the key issues are causing your mould growth and where the mould is primarily located. When removing mould, mould cleaners will generally make a major analysis of your property and find all areas in which moisture levels may be too high and where there may be a lack of sunlight. Once the professional mould removalists have identified all key issues causing the mould, they generally will provide a full report detailing all recommendations for future mould cleaning, decontamination and prevention. 

What are the most common types of mould? 

  • Aspergillus-a green or grey mould commonly found on food and in aircon systems.-Can lead to sinus and lung infections for people with weak immune systems. 
  • Cladosporium-a green or brown mould with a suede-like texture, found on household items like carpets, fabrics, upholstery, timber and uncleaned refrigerators. It most commonly is the reason behind most people’s mould allergies. 
  • Stachybotrys (aka ‘black mould’), a dark green or black mould with a slimy texture. It grows in areas that are dark, wet or humid and can produce toxic spores. 

Whatever the colour or type, if you have any mould in your home, you should remove it.
