Mould. We’ve all seen. But what could happen to you if it’s around and you touch it? Or breathe it in all day long?
Mould loves humid climates
Mould grows as the result of a number of different forms of fungi that form spores. These fungi thrive in damp, warm and humid climates, just like Brisbane. While not all of them are poisonous to humans, there are certainly a number that produce harmful toxins. Mould can be anywhere, in the roof and on the walls but it can also be hiding in your mattresses and upholstery.
Who Should Worry?
Some parts of Brisbane are more prone to flooding than others. You can access the Brisbane City Council flood map here to check if you’re in a flood zone.
If you’re unsure or concerned about the presence of mould in your home, working with All Aces Cleaning and Restoration is a good way to find out and get the right answers. Our technicians can conduct a mould inspection as well as atmospheric testing to prevent a possible mould infestation.
