Health Risks of spores
The releasing of spores in the air presents a health hazard to humans which causes respiratory problems (especially among those who are asthmatic) and allergic reactions. Irritations in the eyes is another common problem. Severe neurological problems can occur due to untreated and prolonged exposure due to the fact that some fungi produce mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are toxic compounds that are naturally produced by certain types of fungi.
If you or your family members are experiencing chronic coughing, itchy watery eyes, migraines or headaches, fatigue, nasal blockages, sinus problems, frequent sneezing or difficulty breathing then it could be a symptom of mould allergy.
What is Mould?
This is a type of fungus that develops from airborne spores. It usually grows in warm damp humid conditions with inadequate airflows, such as household kitchens, lofts, bathrooms. Plumbing leaks on the outside and inside of a property can also contribute to infestations on building walls. The build-up of moisture behind the walls can also be caused by badly insulated heating pipes.

What causes black mould Northampton?
Stachybotrys chartarum in your Northampton home is usually caused by excessive moisture which is caused by condensation combined with inadequate air ventilation. Damp is also an issue especially rising damp and penetrating damp, but the main common cause of this infestation is simply due to the way we now live within our homes.
Cooking and showering in our home produces large quantities of water vapour and when this comes into contact with a cold surface, it will eventually condense leaving beads of water. If this bead of water comes into contact with organic materials such as wallpaper, or wall paint, then the area will begin to feel damp over time and eventually fester. This is the perfect environment for the growth of this fungus. If the spores are floating in the house or in the air they may eventually land on the damp surface, and begin the germination process.
Due to the fact that we try to keep our windows and doors shut, this prevents dry, clean air from circulating throughout the building, which causes the water vapour to be trapped inside, which causes the stale, damp, stagnant atmosphere for this fungus to thrive in.
According to the Northampton Chronicle and Echo Cabinet members on the Northampton Borough Council approved plans to impose fines of up to £30,000 per offence for a variety of misdemeanours committed by landlords and managing agents. If the council is this strict then you should also be concerning your own property.

Stachybotrys chartarum is also known to have a harmful impact on your animals' health.
Mould Removal Northamptonshire
The removal should only be done by trained professionals as exposure to the spores can be harmful to your health.
Some of the methods that have been used to remove these fungi are:
Vacuum - Wet vacuum cleaners have been used to remove the fungus from carpets, floors, and other hard surfaces. This process is used with caution as there is the possibility for the spores to be exhausted into other rooms, and is only used if the fungus is sufficiently wet.
Blasting with Dry Ice – Most homeowners in Northampton have never heard of dry ice blasting which is best suited for wood or cement surfaces
This uses dry ice that is accelerated in a pressurized air stream to impact the surface. The dry ice creates mini-explosions on the wood or cement surface to lift the fungi from the affected areas. Dry ice is non-toxic, safe and does not leave any secondary waste or toxic chemicals.
Soda Blasting - This is a popular and effective method, particularly as it does not cause a lot of damage to the surface being treated. It does produce a significant amount of very fine dust and leaves a great deal of waste that has to be recovered and removed from the premises.
Damp wipe - this type of Northamptonshire mould treatment involves the scrubbing or wiping of the fungus from non-porous surfaces using astringents. Fungicides are then applied to prevent the regrowth of the fungus.
