Moulds, their spores and their metabolites represent a significant potential health hazard in the built environment, especially for sensitive individuals. Mould growth should be unacceptable in occupied buildings.
Its presence generally indicates problems of condensation due to inadequate provision for ventilation, insulation and/or heating. Mould growth is a common problem after fire and flood. It can result in the significant loss of original material and significant delays to re-occupancy.
H+R investigate problems with mould growth in buildings, provide independent expert advice on managing the potential health problems and on preventing further mould growth.
