Mould is known to cause a variety of health effects if spores are inhaled into the lungs, swallowed, or get into the eyes, nose or open cuts. These health effects can include allergy symptoms, asthma, runny nose, eye infections, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, irritation of the skin, nose, throat and lungs, and many others. Mould can grow anywhere: on carpet, clothing, food, paper, and even in places you can’t see such as the backside of drywall, areas inside walls around leaking or condensing pipes, and above ceiling tiles. To prevent mould, Mr Duct Cleaning recommends eliminating moisture from your home before it becomes a problem. We suggest the following:
Use air conditioning or dehumidifiers to keep the humidity level in your home between 30% and 60%. It’s also important to ensure proper ventilation in your bathroom, kitchen, laundry room and any other high-moisture area.
The air is able to hold less moisture. Without good airflow in your home, moisture may appear on your walls, windows and floors. Open up all doors and windows, and use fans to dry out the building. If there is any mould growth in your home, you should clean it up and fix any water problems, such as leaks in roofs, walls or plumbing. Controlling moisture in your home is the most critical factor for preventing mould growth.
Mould grows wherever there is moisture and food, which is why ducts can grow mould from time to time. Fortunately, duct cleaning services can remove any existing mould to improve your indoor air quality while also helping to prevent the growth of mould in the future.
