One of the most important things you need to understand is that mould is present everywhere.
Mould is spread when spores become airborne. Spores cannot be seen with the naked eye; Being so small, it takes very little air movement for the spores to relocate and begin the growing process.
Preventing mould spores from entering your home or business is almost impossible. You can however take steps to keep the spores from growing into mould inside your structure.
Mould requires organic material and water to grow. Porous surfaces like drywall and wood are easily susceptible to mould and therefore more difficult to protect.
While mould does not grow on surfaces such as glass, Formica, tile, or metal, it will grow on dirt or other organic debris on these surfaces. It is important to keep these surfaces clean in order to keep them free of mould.
If you suspect that you have or may have had any type of moisture problem, such as a leak, then you may already have a mould contamination issue.
