Aside from a water intrusion event such as flooding, leaking roofs, damaged pipes or hot water systems etc, the most common cause of mould comes from air exchange issues. Air exchange issues arise when excess humidity is present. This is very common at times when the outside air is cooler than the inside air. This will result in condensation and subsequently an excess of moisture inside your home.In the winter months, this is very common with the use of furnaces and heaters. They warm up the air inside the dwelling, be it an office or a home, and if the outside air is cold we start to see moisture on the inside of the windows. We have all seen what happens when you leave a milk carton out on your counter , condensation forms on the exterior of the bottle or carton and before long it is sitting in a puddle of water.Technically, the temperature at which the condensation starts to form is called Dew Point. In the summer months, humidity due to weather will cause similar conditions to those that are present during the winter months that contribute to the ideal conditions for the growth of mould. The reason that we see mould starting to form and quickly get out of control, is simply because mould spores are everywhere.25% of the earth’s biomass is made up of different kinds of mould and mould spores . The spores are very small and float in the air. They are carried on clothing, they can enter the structure by simply coming in on a breeze. They may be present in furnishings, plants or even food that has formed mould colonies such as those seen on outdated bread or fruit .To flourish, they simply need the right conditions. This includes moisture, which, as mentioned previously, can come from excess humidity within the structure. Your Goldmorr professional will advise you on ways that you can reduce the excess moisture and humidity within your structure which will aid in keeping mould at bay.
