Mold is caused by damp, which is more likely to occur in houses that are overcrowded and lack appropriate heating, ventilation and insulation. Climate change and its effects on the weather (storms, heavy rainfall and floods) are likely to further increase the proportion of buildings with damp and mold problems. Damp problems are commonly encountered in rental houses, often due to poor maintenance.
If you’ve noticed a small portion of visible mold in your home clean hard surfaces using soap and water, or use a bleach solution. In case of extensive mold damage, call Mold Busters, a commercial mold remediation service for best results.

No. Some people have a genetic predisposition that puts them at risk for developing allergies to mold. Individuals suffering from mold allergies, especially if they have asthma, can become ill from exposure to even a small amount of mold.
Also, people respond differently to exposure to the toxins that some types of mold release, and that’s why its difficult to determine the safe exposure limits for mold.
