Mould is a type of fungus that grows in warm, damp, and humid environments. It can grow on various surfaces such as food, walls, ceilings, carpets, and furniture.
The spores of mould are present in the air, and when they land on a surface with the right conditions of moisture, warmth, and food source, they can begin to grow and spread.
Common causes of mould include high humidity and poor ventilation, lack of cleaning, and poor property maintenance. Preventing mould growth involves reducing moisture and humidity levels in indoor environments, fixing any leaks or water damage promptly, improving ventilation, and maintaining proper cleaning and maintenance practices.
