Mould is a houseguest of the rather unpleasant and unwanted kind. It’s less common during the hot, dry months, but as soon as the climate becomes more humid, for example during Monsoon season, the risk of mould increases. We’ve compiled some useful information on what mould actually is, as well as how to get rid of it for good – and how to prevent it from returning to your home.
What is Mould?
Mould in the house is caused by dampness, and can often be found on walls and furniture as well as windowsills and frames.
Mould is a fungal growth, and while there are many different kinds, they are usually found thriving in humid environments, such as houses with a great deal of condensation.
Mould growth often be can be found in bathrooms or basements, but it’s certainly not picky – it will grow anywhere humid enough.
It is not only unpleasant to the eye, but can also be dangerous, causing (among other things) respiratory problems.
