All About Mould

According to a Harvard University School of Public Health study, over 50% of our homes have indoor mould. And once you have mould spores, it’s incredibly easy for those spores to latch on to a moist surface and multiply. That leaves a lot of families vulnerable to the possible health effects of indoor mould:

  • Watery or itchy eyes
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion
  • Coughing
  • Skin irritation
  • Asthma
  • Respiratory problems

In fact, a study at the University of Arizona suggests that mould spores are a suspected cause in the tripling of the asthma rate in the past 20 years. By knowing the facts and all about mould, you can better keep your home and family, safe and healthy.

Typically mould needs three conditions to grow:

  • Moisture from humidity, leaks or flooding
  • Organic, porous materials like drywall, grout or wallpaper
  • Optimal temperature, generally between 18-28 degrees

Mould Growth

These elements can create a mould problem that can colonize and multiply quickly in as little as 24-48 hours.

For decades, the answer to mould problems has always been bleach. And although the mould would disappear, it was only weeks before it was back again.

Why bleach isn’t effective against mould

Why? Because bleach isn’t effective against mould on porous surfaces like wood and drywall as it leaves the roots of mould intact and ready to return. That’s why we think it’s time to ditch the bleach.


Concrobium works to effectively crush the mould spores, and remain on the surface to prevent mould. Concrobium Mould Control is the safe way to eliminate mould with no bleach, ammonia or toxic chemicals.
