Toxic mould is defined as large concentrations of mould within a home or building, far in excess of background levels. Certain species of mould are more toxic than others.
Exposure to mould can produce a variety of symptoms such as eye irritation, runny nose, nausea, asthma aggravation and more serious conditions. Infants, children and pregnant women are particularly at risk. Toxic mould must be identified either through visual inspection, surface or air sampling.
If toxic mould is suspected, the locations of the mould and the source of any leaks should be inspected. In particular, medium to large scale mould cleaning should not be attempted by the building owner; improper techniques and equipment could lead to further contamination.
