MOULDS & Mildews
Moulds are microscopic fungi, a group of organisms which also includes mushrooms and yeasts. You encounter mould every day.
Food spoils because of mould. Leaves decay and pieces of wood lying on the ground rot due to mould.
The black growth on wet window sills and walls is mould.
Paper or fabrics stored in a damp place get a musty smell that is due to the action of moulds.
MOULD IN THE HOME
Moulds can be useful to people. The drug penicillin is obtained from a specific type of mould. Some foods and drinks are made by the actions of moulds. These good kinds of moulds are selected and grown in a controlled fashion.
However, moulds are undesirable when they grow where we don’t want them, such as in homes. There are 3 undesirable effects of growth in the home:
- Damage to materials
- Negative health effects
- Unsightly appearance & smell
Moulds will grow when provided with moisture and nutrients. High moisture levels can be the result of water coming in from the outside, through the floor, walls or roof; or from plumbing leaks; or moisture produced by the people living in the home, through daily activities like bathing, washing clothes or cooking.
Water enters the building when there is a weakness or failure in the structure.
Moisture accumulates within the home when there is not enough ventilation to expel that moisture.
