FAQs

Q Can untreated damp walls affect your health?

Moulds are ubiquitous, and mould spores are a common component of household and workplace dust; however, when mould spores are present in large quantities, they can present a health hazard to humans, potentially causing allergic reactions and respiratory problems.

Some moulds also produce mycotoxins that can pose serious health risks to humans and animals. Some studies claim that exposure to high levels of mycotoxins can lead to neurological problems and in some cases death. Prolonged exposure, e.g. daily home exposure, may be particularly harmful. Research on the health impacts of mould has not been conclusive. The term “toxic mould” refers to moulds that produce mycotoxins and not to all moulds in general.

Mould in your home can usually be found in damp, dark or steamy areas e.g. bathrooms or kitchens, cluttered storage areas, recently flooded areas, basement areas, areas with poor ventilation and outdoors in humid environments. Symptoms caused by mould allergy are watery, itchy eyes, a chronic cough, headaches or migraines, difficulty breathing, rashes, tiredness, sinus problems, nasal blockage and frequent sneezing.

Q Are there alternative damp proofing solutions that provide a quick fix?

No, you need to stop the root cause of the damp problem.

We are proud to say that we have the only tested damp proofing methods in South Africa for South African conditions.
