Property News: Could mould be damaging your health?
According to the World Health Organisation, excessive dampness and mould are a threat to health. Occupants of damp or mouldy buildings are at increased risk of experiencing health problems such as respiratory symptoms, respiratory infections, allergic rhinitis and asthma.
No wonder then that mould is now a recognised Category 1 Health Hazard by the Housing Health Safety Rating System (HHSRS).
Living in conditions with condensation and mould can take its toll! Symptoms could include:
– Sneezing and sinus problems
– Skin rashes
Asthma is a wide-spread condition that affects over five million people in the UK and is more serious than many people think. Asthma UK, the UK’s leading asthma charity recognises mould, mould spores and poor home ventilation as some of the main triggers of asthma and aggravating asthma symptoms.
