Before you chuckle it off and consider it not to be one of the bigger problems of your day to day life, mould is a bigger problem than the large black stain it may be leaving on your wall. By experts, mould is considered lethal and detrimental to both your short term and long term health.
There are thousands of different types of mould, but the one considered most dangerous is Stachybotrys. A black and slimy type of mould who’s damaging properties can exist in any other mould.
These damaging properties can most seriously include respiratory problems, and damage to internal organs and this is probably enough to make you ask..
Throughout my childhood growing up in the South West of England I was blissfully unaware of the severity of mould occurring so commonly in the home. As I moved out and went to University mould spores would become a regular fitting in each of my new homes. The conditions always seemed to be perfect as I would later find mould damaging the paint work on the walls and causing respiratory damage to myself. From that point, I have found myself in a flurry of buying all kinds of dehumidifying equipment, mould cleaners and any other anti-mould product you can think up! Alongside studying how to keep mould at bay.
This website is to share what I have learned, in order to hopefully save you the pain I have gone through with time and money spent in order to remediate mould. I’ll be offering tips and reviews on how to prevent and remove mould successfully, dispelling of any myths out there and best of all keeping you in the know about what the best products on the market are from dehumidifiers like the EcoAir DC12 to the Nuaire Drimaster PIV unit.
