Repeatedly wiping off surface mould is not a solution, first we need understanding the underlying factors causing mould growth if we want to avoid health issues.

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
  • 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

  • Mould spores are all around us, we can't escape it. Without identifying the root cause, cleaning up black mould only addresses the visible result, that is a symptom, not the cause, is pointless waste of time, money and effort.

    We investigate and use an infrared camera for our expert black mould inspections to identify hidden moisture problems, water ingress, damp, and black mould problems in buildings.
