Mould Remediation – 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 properties, however it will give you a basic outline on how to approach condensation-related problems.

What causes mould to grow in properties?

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 will feed on cold surfaces such as 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 types of mould spores and the prevailing conditions.
