The root cause of black mould and what we can do to prevent it
As homes become more and more airtight in order to make them energy efficient, ensuring good ventilation and indoor air quality is vital for our health. Condensation is a big issue; everyday activities like bathing, cooking, washing and drying our clothes all introduce moisture to the air. This humidity provides a breeding ground for black mould – one of the most dangerous things to our health, causing asthma and breathing difficulties. The only way to treat mould efficiently is to control moisture levels in the air, if you don’t want it to grow, stop watering it.
Richard Williams, General Manager of Vortice Ltd explains the dangers and explores some of the solutions in this first podcast on the subject with BusinessNet Explorer.
