Tropical Hong Kong has high humidity, so humidity, condensation, flooding or water leakage risks causing mold on bathroom walls, ceilings, or in the suspended ceiling, and that moisture causes mold that can cause health issues for your family.

Water damage whether caused by flooding, water ingress, condensation or damp can create the perfect environment for mold to grow inside buildings, particularly in bathrooms, risking your health and the health of your family.

Health Impacts of Mould

Whether caused by flooding, condensation or water leakage the resulting mould can impact your health.

You do not need to inhale spores or their mycotoxins, direct contact/touching spores can cause a rash for some people.

Everyone is different, with a varying sensitivity to mould, so individuals, in the same building, may have no symptoms or suffer from a range of different health problems. Medical advice reports a range of health impacts caused by mould including:

  • tiredness
  • fatigue
  • lethargic
  • eyes irritation, red eyes
  • headaches
  • rash, eczema, hives, skin irritation
  • allergies
  • asthma
  • throat irritation
  • respiratory problems
  • nausea
  • depressed/unmotivated
  • unable to sleep
  • brain fog/loss of focus

  • We use high resolution thermal camera (infrared camera) to identify hidden damp and moisture issues, that can't be seen by the human eye, to find the water source, that is first step to resolving mold problems.

    Mold is a fungi, a living organism that is found everywhere, outdoors and indoors. Once mature it releases microscopic spores into the air. like seeds, these microscopic spores drift around in air, carried on air currents.

    Indoors, spores move around on natural drafts and within air currents created by air conditioning units or fans, until they can settle.

    And given the right environmental conditions (food and water) the spores will grow, reproduce, and release spores into the air, continuing its life cycle.

    However, for some people, particularly young children and sensitive adults mold spores can cause health problems, including alleries, headaches, resiratory problems which may cause, further complications often requiring medical treatment.

    To stop indoor mold requires cutting off its food and water, simpler said than done. Our expertise is air and water, we idendify the source or sources of water, damp or moisture that cause mold.
