Black mould and pest related problems are often found together, the conditions that create the black mould which can also be a good environment for insects and rodents. It is not uncommon to find woodlice, slugs, silverfish, snails, plaster beetles or rodents in damp and humid areas, these can often be found in all stages of mould appearing in properties.
Every property, no matter how it is constructed contains mould spores somewhere which are dormant and completely harmless.
Given the right conditions these spores will germinate resulting in extensive growths of black mould (Aspergillus Niger).
Mould needs very little nutrient and will grow on walls and ceilings irrespective of the decorative finish. Mould spores will also spread into the air which can be a serious health risk, and give off an obnoxious musty smell. Clothes, furnishings and carpets can also be destroyed by unsightly mould.
Due to the rising costs of heating etc a lot of property owners / tenants are trying to cut the costs by turning down or even off the heating, this can be a high contributing factor for Black Mould Growth. Obviously this action can cost a lot more to remedy than the initial savings on heating.
Mould in the home arises from dampness, mainly by condensation, with only a small proportion of problems occurring due to other forms of dampness ie rising damp, penetrating damp, bursts and leaks.
The incidence of condensation in domestic dwellings has increased tenfold in the last decade and is attributable to various factors such as the lack of heating, inadequate ventilation, the use of paraffin and LPG heaters etc.
Due to properties being modernised they are often made into a sealed box, which are virtually airtight and draught free.
Mould in houses, even a small concentration, can be a health risk which may result is asthma and other respiratory diseases. There are reports that confirms that active spores even in small concentrations, are detrimental to the well being of adults and children.
Remember cold properties can also cause Mould and health issues relating to mould growth
