The Black Mould
Moulds can in some cases cause skin irritations, respiratory problems and even allergies. In the worst case, mould can be fatal as well due to the toxins they produce. These toxins usually enter the body through the respiratory tract and can affect organ functions severely if not treated on time. It is noteworthy that not all moulds are life-threatening and can be removed easily using specialised methods and techniques.
Although moulds can be found in different colours, what makes them a biohazard is the presence of mycotoxin (Latin for fungus poison), a chemical substance that is produced by moulds that can be hazardous to living space occupants. So, while Bio Clean focuses on black mould removal in Melbourne, we also specialise in cleaning all types of mould. Additionally, our experts are trained to handle any on-site deep clean Melbourne needs to ensure a clean and safe environment for you to live in.
Where do Black Moulds Come From?
Moulds flourish in the presence of moisture. This makes any space in your house that is frequently exposed to moisture susceptible to mould growth. Waterlogging is another reason for mould development that can be avoided by repairing pipelines, leaking roofs and even getting flood cleaning and redemption done as soon as possible.
To prevent moisture-induced mould from growing, keep checking your bathroom, roofs and washing areas. Swimming pools are another spot where mould and algae can grow due to moisture. Regular cleaning and maintenance ensure that you are able to detect mould growth. Alternatively, it is always an option to call Bio Clean for deep clean Melbourne
Why Mould can be Dangerous for Health?
Moulds hide in spots and places people usually don’t care to look at. Be it under cabinets of the washbasin or behind furniture. You can be spending time getting treated for allergies or toxins despite living a healthy and clean life. While moulds aren’t usually dangerous and can be cleaned off by oneself, it is highly advised not to do so due to the risks of ingesting toxins. Aside from allergic reactions, skin irritation and respiratory problems, moulds can also trigger certain skin conditions. In fact, moulds can also cause asthma issues.
