About Mould

Regardless of the property type, every house has mould spores that are completely harmless and often lie dormant. However, in the right conditions, these spores can develop and germinate into growths of black mould.

Mould only needs a small amount of nutrients to grow on any wall or ceiling, regardless of its decorative finish. Once mould spores have started to germinate, they will spread in the air and on to clothes, carpets, furnishings and more. These can then begin to smell and can be a health risk.

The Cause & Health Risks

Mould is typically formed when condensation from damp arises. However, a small number of complications can happen due to rising damp, penetrating damp, true dampness, leaks and burst. The occurrence of condensation in homes has increased in the last few years, mainly due to a lack of heating and inadequate ventilation. No matter how big or small the contamination of mould is, it can have serious health ramifications, especially for asthma and other respiratory conditions. However, it’s not just furnishings and other objects in the house that mould infects. It can also affect our food with dangerous toxins, which increases the chances of food poisoning.

Cold Bridging

The lack of insulation can result in cold ceiling and wall surfaces. This can be a particular problem when some areas have been insulated but other adjacent areas have not been due to the nature and design of the building. Typical examples are Mansard, Dormer and flat roofs where there is no void space for loft insulation and solid wall construction houses.
