Moulds are a large and taxonomically diverse number of fungal species in which the growth of hyphae results in discoloration and a fuzzy appearance. Mould in the construction industry has a history of simply being a matter of time, indoor air quality/movement and of course the natural elements, although many technologies have been developed to mitigate or sometimes even eliminate the risk/growth of mould. If not treated properly it can spread/grow quite quickly turning a small problem into a large one.
Mould growth in buildings can lead to a verity of health problems. Most commonly respiratory effects like asthma, coughing, headaches, and other physical symptoms. Proper removal is necessary to stop the spread throughout the space it is being removed from, and the workers must be wearing the correct protection to protect themselves.
