Article Summary: 

This article provides 10 essential facts about mould that everyone should know. Mould is a fungus that can cause both structural and health problems, including allergic reactions and respiratory issues. It grows in moisture-prone areas and can develop in hidden parts of a home. To prevent mould growth, the humidity in a home should be kept between 30-60 percent, and water leaks and condensation should be fixed immediately. A flooded home and its contents should be cleaned and dried within 24-48 hours of the incident to prevent mould growth. Smaller areas affected by mould can be cleaned with water and detergent, while larger areas should be handled by a mould restoration company. Carpeting should not be installed in areas where moisture can be a problem.
