The health issues associated with rising damp. Mould on the walls.

Health issues caused by mould are a big contender for the eradication of Rising Damp - besides the obvious eye-sore, cracks, rotting or decaying walls or the musty, dank smell to it.

Mould is a non-scientific term for many types of unwanted fungi found both indoors and outdoors. Active mould growth requires moisture. Actively-growing mould damages the material it lives on, thereby impairing structural integrity. Moulds produce allergens (substances that can cause allergic reactions) and irritants. Inhaling or touching mould or mould spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic responses include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash.
