Mildew species in the apartmentMolds surround people everywhere and they are not necessarily always harmful.
However, if the fungus occurs in too high a concentration, then health problems are the result.
Around 120,000 different types of mold are known. These produce poisons and spread through spores, which can not be perceived by the naked eye. Mold spores are an invisible danger, which makes them so dangerous. The human, who is exposed to a very high mold fungus concentration over a longer period of time, absorbs the spores via the respiration. So allergies and respiratory infections.
In many cases, there is a general malaise and it can also occur intoxication symptoms. Many people are affected by allergies and it is not only the house dust or mite allergy that causes the human being inside the apartment. Around 30 percent of nearly 30 million Germans suffer from a mold fungus allergy - alarming numbers.
What is the reason for mold growth in apartments?
The reasons for mold growth in the home are versatile. However, the inhabitant of an apartment is in many cases to blame for a mold, because he has a wrong ventilation and heating behavior. So the formation of mold is favored. Mold generally occurs wherever it is moist.
It is damp in an apartment but not only in the
Bathroom, but in all rooms, where is not provided for a sufficient supply of fresh air. Especially in the winter months much less aired. Warm heating air, however, can absorb a lot of moisture, which then settles on the walls.
It comes to mold growth. The air from outside, however, is a lot drier. If you ventilate three to four times a day during the winter and make sure that a complete air exchange takes place, that is
the chance big that no mold can form in the apartment. This so-called push-off ventilation is achieved by providing a passage in a room.
In addition, there are also structural damage or chemical pollutants in building materials, which are responsible for the formation of mold fungi. But again, it is the moisture that is responsible for molds.
Can e.g. Groundwater or rainwater entering the masonry, the moisture in the building also shows through the formation of mold.
Which types of mold are there in detail?
Basically, the molds are classified into different classes, each representing the danger to humans. Most of the time mold is in the apartment around the genus "Aspergillus".
There are e.g. the fungus "Aspergillus flavus", which produces the toxin Aflatoxine, which can cause liver damage and cancer. Similarly, "Aspergillus parasiticus", which also causes liver damage and cancer.
When the fungus is "Aspergillus clavatus", the human response to the expelled poison "Tremerogen" is trembling. By the poison of the mold "Aspergillus ochraceus" a fatty liver can be the result and also kidney problems can not be ruled out.
Fast acting in mold in the apartment
No matter which mold is getting spread in an apartment, it is important to act fast, so that on the one hand health damages can be excluded and on the other hand the building substance can not suffer.
By an appraiser, who is e.g. at the TÜV, you can find the source of all evil. If it is clear how the mold or moisture can reach the apartment, measures should first be taken to ensure that the renovation works.
Afterwards, it is necessary to clean affected areas in the apartment, what with special disinfectants in combination with a special
Antishimmel color very well done.
