Melbourne’s weather is subject to mild, dry weather, thunderstorms and heavy rainfall, causing humidity levels to increase. The changeable weather means we tend to close up our home and utilise our air-conditioner or heating systems. This often leads to dampness and inadequate ventilation within the property. Perfect for mould to grow and spread.
There are 1000s of mould species in existence and there are a handful of mould types commonly found in Melbourne homes. Aspergillus, Cladosporium and Alternaria all thrive in warm, dark or damp areas such as bathrooms, window frames and air-conditioning units. Stachybotrys Chartarum or toxic black mould is another common mould species that can grow and spread.
Regular airflow, adequate ventilation and keeping areas dry around the home is the best way to stop mould in its tracks and prevent it from spreading.
