Moulds are toxic fungal deposits that build up in damp environments. Homes with water seepage provide excellent environments for mould to build up. Moulds cause a variety of health issues such as:
- Major fungal and respiratory infections
- Asthma attacks
- Allergic reactions like red and itchy eyes, skin infections
- Weakening of immune system
- Infants are highly susceptible to infections due to moulds.
Moulds can often go undetected for long periods of time as the deposits can occur under wallpapers or on hidden surfaces. A classic symptom of hidden mould is a musty smell inside your home.
