Mould growth in indoor environment is a fact of life since mould is everywhere. The only thing we can do is to manage its growth by controlling the conditions that favour mould growth. Conditions that favour mould growth are:
- Suitable temperature.
Among these 3 factors, water would be the easiest for us control. By maintaining indoor relative humidity at between 30-60% we can drastically reduce mould growth. Recent study has also shown that regular vacuum cleaning reduces the spore load on surfaces. Regular visual inspection of the building would help to identify potential mould problems and have them fixed.
