All houses contain mould spores no matter how well they or when they were constructed. These are normally dormant and harmless, but under certain conditions these will become active. This will lead to the ugly black spot mould (Aspergillus Niger for those of you who like Latin) appearing on surfaces.
It doesn't take much to kick this process off. The mould spreads on walls, surfaces etc and the mould spores can become airborne which as well as smelling musty can also be a seriously detrimental to health. Black spot mould can also damage your carpets and clothes.

What causes Aspergillus Niger?
Essentially, mould thrives on dampness. If you have damp in your home this is most likely caused by condensation although burst or leaky pipes, penetrating damp or rising damp can also be a cause. Home dampness is on the increase, and the number one cause is condensation caused by poor ventilation. Again, you can read about condensation and how to eliminate it here on our blog.
