Majority of people are not aware that the reason of not feeling well, or having allergies is the possibility of being exposed to the fungi. More severe symptoms may develop due to prolong exposure. Prolonged exposure puts people more at risk of developing more severe symptoms, particularly those with weakened immune systems, existing respiratory conditions, elderly individuals and infants.

Black Mould Removal in Camden

Black mould may grow indoors in moist or wet or areas lacking proper ventilation, including walls and/or wallpaper, ceilings, bathroom tiles, carpets, wood and insulation material. Growth will often occur in areas where moisture is allowed to accumulate in the building.

There are many different types of mould and they all can lead to potential health problems.

Some of the common types that are found in bathrooms and kitchens:

  • Alternaria sp.
  • Aspergillus fumigatus
  • Aspergillus sp.
  • Chaetomium globosum
  • Cladosporium cladosporioides
  • Cladosporium sphaerospermum
  • Cladosporum sp.
  • Fusarium sp.
  • Memnoniella sp.
  • Penicillium sp.
  • Stachybotrys chartarum (known as Stachybotrys atra)
  • Trichoderma sp.
  • Ulocladium botrytis

The colour has nothing to do with its toxicity or potency, and its not possible to identify fungal species strictly based on colour or visual observation. Chaetomium, which grows peach or white (when cultured.) is considered by some in the scientific community to be more toxic than Stachybotrys. Actually most of these fungus have the potential to be toxic, and the majority of them are allergenic, but just because it is black, doesn’t mean that it is toxic or that it will cause symptoms.

What are the causes of condensation?

Condensation occurs when air with excess moisture comes into contact with a cold surface, which causes the water molecules to be cooled, which then causes them to solidify into water.

The problem is that this excess moisture in the air is caused every day activities. Boiling water, having a shower, cooking, drying clothes and even just the simple act of breathing will release moisture into the atmosphere. WE are not going to stop doing these things that are necessary, therefore the only real solution is to reduce the amount of moisture, increase ventilation or warm up cool surfaces.

Another factor to consider is the fact that people are sharing homes in the London Borough of Camden and due to crime, people are refusing to open their windows open, condensation will increase, putting more properties people in danger of mould.

Another cause of condensation is lateral, penetrating, or rising damp.
