Flooding, water damage, water ingress, humidity or damp can create the perfect environment for mold to grow inside buildings, risking your health or health of your employees. And at home, risking the health of your family.

Mold can suddenly appaear on walls, ceilings, or furniture flats causing mouldy smell, and risking health of the occupants. Some types of mold release toxins that can be dangerous for the occupants.

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

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

    We use high resolution thermal infrared camera to identify the source of hidden damp and moisture, the first step to resolving mold problems.
