Where to Detect Mould

Moulds require moisture to grow, and many moisture problems in buildings are the result of contemporary building construction practices.

Mould can grow in almost any building, spores may enter through open doorways, windows, and air handling systems, or be tracked in on peoples clothing and shoes.

Cellulose building products like cardboard, ceiling tiles, wood products, and the paper layer on gypsum board, are particularly inviting to some species of moulds including stachybotrys.

Mould abatement projects should only be performed by trained professionals who have the specialized equipment and experience to ensure worker, and building occupant safety by complying with the strict regulations, guidelines, and procedures established by the regulatory agencies.
