Mould damage specialists in Portsmouth

How does mould grow in the home?

Some damage will occur from building faults such as rising damp, plumbing leaks and water ingress and, other outbreaks can be caused by human activity around the home, for example bathing, cooking, washing and drying clothes. Even small amounts of moisture can build up without proper ventilation that can allow condensation and damp to occur.

Mould will feed on wallpaper, adhesives, paints, fabrics and other materials in order to grow and reproduce and, some can take between 4-12 hours to germinate and 1-12 days for it to colonise the area depending on the type of mould and the prevailing conditions.
