Around the world up to a third of all all building regardless of their construction type or age, contains within its fabric, mould spores which may lay dormant and completely harmless. However, given the right conditions, these spores will germinate, resulting in extensive growths of disfiguring and dangerous mould.
Exposure to mould spores is more serious than previously thought. The effects of moulds and dampness on the respiratory health of children are comparable to the effects of passive smoking and can also cause asthma and chronic bronchitis. In a recent US study of asthma in inner city suburbs, the mould Altenaria or "black mould" as it is also known was found to be the single most important factor associated with the disease.
In damp and mouldy houses, people are more likely to suffer from rhinitis, nasal congestion, coughs, wheezing and sore throats. Mould exposure is associated with being more susceptible to colds, lower respiratory tract infections and irritation of skin and eyes, fever and headache. In severe cases, exposure can cause death.
Mould is being called "the asbestos of a new generation" in the United States and a rash of lawsuits totaling $US600 million is pending. A recent legal case resulted in the payout of $US3.1 million dollars by a company which did not adequately clean up a mould contaminated home.
