Mould isn’t a scientific term, but it is used for lots of types of fungi unwanted, unappealing patches of black, brown, yellow, pink, green, smelly, fuzzy growths. We can find it and its countless species indoors and outdoors.
Mould or called in a different way fungus can cause any type of problems such us (musty odours, mouldy carpets, water leaks, soggy drywall, and poisonous mushrooms, among others). But they also have a positive side, are responsible for penicillin and blue cheese; yeasts are fungi (plural of fungus) used to make bread, beer, and wine; and some types of mushrooms are considered edible delicacies. And without fungi to break them down, the world would be buried in leaves, trees, grass, and garbage.
Even though mould and its spores are in every area, active mould growth requires moisture. Whether on visible surfaces or hiding behind drywall, in attics, or under carpets, indoor mould grows in the presence of excessive dampness or water. Also found in damp indoor environments are:
- dust mites;
- break-down products of bacteria and moulds, such as proteins, cell-wall particles (glucans) and volatile organic compounds (the actual cause of the musty odour associated with mould);
- airborne chemicals, gasses, and particulate matter caused by the destruction of materials by growing moulds.
Indoor mould has potential problems very seriously than can we imagine. We, in theory, know that it is unsightly and smelly, but everything is more than that. An actively-growing mould damages the material it lives on, thereby impairing the structural integrity. Also is associated with some untoward health effects in humans, including allergies and infections.
Several health effects are caused as a consequence of mould. For example, the so-called “toxic mould” has been claimed as the cause of “toxic mould disease”; this syndrome remains undefined and “toxic mould” as a cause remains unproven.
