Rain brings moisture. The key ingredient to start the mould growth cycle that may currently be in a dormant state in your home.
I’ve talked about this before but with autumn here and the rain staring to be a more frequency part of our week its worth reminding everyone of the reason you are likely to see the mould increase in your home.
When rain arrives, it lands on dry places where the wind has deposited dust from miles away. That dust has been a vehicle for mould spores, and with the arrival of moisture from the rain, a perfect medium is now in place for the mould to start growing.
Have you watched how rain touches your home?
- the windows, where mould is often the first place to grow
- the external doors laden with rain, sometimes seeping in from under the door
- overflow from gutters
- flowing on the ground outside your house so that you have to walk through the wet ground
- brought inside from wet umbrellas, dripping from wet clothes
- the underside of wet shoes walking in moisture and dirt
- pets coming inside from the rain
- defects in your building structure letting the moisture into your home
So many ways in which moisture can hit dry spaces in your home, and so enable the beginning of indoor mould colonies. The more opportunities these colonies have to get more moisture, the faster they will grow.
Toxic Mould loves a moist environment where it can thrive.
As the mould grows it will take some time before it becomes noticeable. People with different sensitivities will start to react to the mould. These reactions will range from sniffles, coughs, skin allergies, then increase to respiratory issues, headaches and for some of our clients’ much worse conditions that have become lifelong ailments.
What can you do to keep mould levels low so it does not impact your health?
