Is Hidden Mould Making Your Family Sick?

The air quality in your home is important for you and your families health. But this can be impacted by hidden mould contamination, which is becoming a common issue in Australian homes. Mould can begin to grow within 48 hours after a water damage event such as burst pipes, bath overflows, rain damage or floods. Carrying out fast and effective drying is vital to ensure the air in your home is free from contamination.

The mould spores developed in the air has the potential to cause serious illnesses with symptoms such as:
• Sneezing

• Headaches

• Nausea

• Red itching skin

• Constant fatigue

• Breathing disorders

• Loss of appetite

These symptoms may be exacerbated if anyone in your household has asthma or are sensitive to particles. Some of these symptoms are difficult to diagnose such as “Mould Illness” because of the wide range of symptoms presented and other possible causes.

If you have a damp smell in your house or you have had water damage that was not professionally dried, your home may have a hidden mould problem.
