Mould Remediation Reading – FAQs

The majority of mould and damp problems can be left undiagnosed for an extended period of time which will ultimately lead to an unsafe living environment. The following FAQs are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to understanding mould and damp in Reading, however it will give you a basic outline on how to approach condensation-related problems.

How does mould grow in properties throughout Reading?

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

Mould thrives on cold surfaces, including wallpaper, adhesives, paints, fabrics, and various materials, using them as a source of sustenance for growth and reproduction. The timeframe for germination can range from 4 to 12 hours, while colonisation duration may vary from 1 to 12 days, contingent upon the type of mould spores and the existing conditions.
