Flodding or water leakage risks causing mold in hotel walls, ceilings, or inside suspended the ceiling which can damage the fabric of the building, and that moisture is the main driver, causing mold that can cause health issues for hotel guests.

Water damage, water ingress, or damp can create the perfect environment for mold to grow inside your building, particularly in hotel rooms risking the health of your hotel guests and visitors.

Health Impacts of Mould

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

  • eyes irritation, red eyes
  • headaches

  • mold issues are not confined to old buildings, in new buildings, poor construction methods or sub-standard materials can leave new hotel owners with mold problems.

    mold a living organism, once mature it releases microscopic spores into the air, these spores drift around on air currents in the room, or air currents created by fans, until they can settle. And given the right environmental conditions, spores will grow, reproduce and release spores into the air, continuing its life cycle.

    mold spores are airborne



    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.

    Surface mold does not tell the whole story, the source of the water or moisture causing the growth of mold is critical. Our infrared thermal camera can reveal the true extent, even if the owner is unaware. Yes, we have found water damage in walls, that nobody knew were damage, but we found it!

    We use infrared thermal camera for our expert mold inspections, so we can identify the source and extent of hidden moisture problems, damp, and mold problems in buildings.
