The Health Risks of Mould

Mould is associated with or increases susceptibility to a number of health issues including-:

  • Asthma
  • Colds and Flu
  • Sinus Infections

Inhaled mould spores can irritate the respiratory system.

Mould thrives in moist damp conditions like -:

  • Shower
  • Air Conditioner
  • Carpets and Wallpaper
  • Cupboards
  • Furniture
  • Washing Machine

Purchasing an Ozone Generator is an option if you have a high level of mould throughout your home.
Clean flyscreens, increase air flow and natural sunlight where possible.

Mould can cause a host of health problems including asthma, increased susceptibility to flu and colds, and sinus infections. Because mold thrives in damp conditions, it can live in many places around your home such as the shower, under carpeting and wallpaper, in the basement and surprisingly even in your washing machine. Washer mildew can linger in your laundry room and transfer to your clothes, increasing your risk for mold-related health problems.

One tip is to keep your washing machine lid open after a wash to ensure all moisture evaporates.

Mould can also be caused by some chemical detergents residues and fabric softeners.

Any grime build-up can attract mould.

Grime is the last thing you want associated with your washing machine.

Avoid leaving damp clothes in the machine for prolonged periods.
