How to get rid of fungi and mould from walls?
Fungi and mould become a common issue in our climate conditions. The spores of these organisms residing in our homes are invisible for a human eye, thus, they can be a serious threat for our health. In order to fight mould efficiently, it’s not sufficient to eliminate only signs in the form of terrible mould on the walls but first of all – remove its cause.
Moisture is the most frequent cause of occurrence of ugly and dangerous fungi. Long-lasting high humidity within interiors is often caused by the lack of efficient ventilation. Water vapour in the air condenses on walls as a result of temperature fluctuations. Regularly concentrating moisture is an ideal habitat for development of bacteria and fungi.
Water can also seep in the interior from outside, e.g. due to cracked gutter, roof leakage or other malfunctions of building construction. In this case, to get rid of the mould we have to remove the defect.
