The Hidden Dangers of Household Mould and How to Keep It Out of Your Home

It’s no secret that mould looks unsightly, but there are many hidden dangers to this common household intruder that people don’t often know about. Read on to find out how mould can negatively affect the health of you and your guests, as well as the overall structural integrity of your home, and learn how to keep it out of your living environment for good!

What are the hidden dangers of mould?

Household mould and its spores can pose serious risks to the health of residents and guests, especially after prolonger exposure. People with weaker immune systems and allergies are especially prone to issues caused by mould inhalation.

A few common symptoms of health and wellbeing issues that mould can cause include…athing difficulty / asthma attacks

  • Itchy eyes, nose and throat
  • Inflammation
  • Sneezing, coughing and excess mucus
  • Respiratory infections
  • Skin disorders and rashes
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Brain fog / lack of concentration
  • Fungal infections
  • Chronic fatigue

Mould also poses dangers to the home itself. If mould is allowed to grow and spread within the home, there is a risk that it will begin to eat away at porous materials (wood, in particular), causing stress and damage to the structural integrity of the home. If this becomes an issue for long enough, parts of the home can begin to leak and even crumble, becoming a safety hazard and causing damage that is very expensive to fix.
