Airborne Mould Spores: What You Need to Know

Control moisture: Mould thrives in damp environments, so it's important to keep your home dry. Fix any leaks in pipes, roofs or windows, and ensure that any water spills or floods are dried immediately. Use dehumidifiers in damp areas, such as basements and bathrooms, to reduce humidity levels.

Improve ventilation: Proper ventilation helps to reduce moisture levels in your home. Open windows and doors when possible to let in fresh air, and use exhaust fans in bathrooms and kitchens to remove excess moisture.

Clean and dry surfaces: Regularly clean and dry surfaces that may become damp, such as shower curtains, bathroom tiles, and kitchen countertops. Avoid leaving wet items, such as towels and clothing, lying around the house for long periods.

Monitor indoor humidity levels: Keep an eye on the humidity levels in your home using a hygrometer. Ideally, the humidity level should be below 60%. If it's higher, use a dehumidifier to bring it down.

Use mould-resistant products: When renovating or building, choose mould-resistant products, such as drywall and paint, to help prevent mould growth.

By taking these simple steps, you can reduce the likelihood of mould growth in your home, protecting both your property and your health.
