- Mould Health Risks
Blocked gutters allow water and moisture to enter the internal roof void of your home. The combination of moisture and a dark and warm roof area creates the perfect environment in which toxic moulds can establish. Mould can then rapidly evolve across ceilings and walls.
Toxic mould is not only unsightly inside a home; it can also have a profound impact on occupant’s health and well-being. Toxic mould has been linked to asthma, sinus infections, constant cold and flu symptoms, chronic fatigue, eye and skin irritation.
The tell tail signs of blocked gutters is when mould is identified around eaves, the outer wall, ceiling and cornis areas within the home. Left un-checked the toxic mould can rapidly spread.
It is important to remember that you do not need to actually see the mould for it to be impacting on your health. Mould is air borne and breathing in the mould spawns can bring on such medical conditions as noted above.
If you can smell that musty mouldy smell or see the mould on surfaces then it is time to act now!
Regular maintenance of gutters can help prevent moisture built-up in and around your home!
