Have you often seen a green fungus on the walls or the ceilings? Those are naturally occurring airborne fungus we are surrounded with. Usually, they start growing and spreading on damp surfaces. Research suggests that mould cannot be prevented completely. That said, one of the only ways to control the fungus is to control the moisture of that particular region. As mentioned above, moulds usually blossom in slight wet or damp areas, keeping the property dry can aid with breakouts.

- Non-stop Humidity – This is usually natural and is caused by humid weather or steam inside.
- Inappropriate Drainage Systems – This can be experienced especially with the Air conditioners’ outdoor units. The leakage becomes the cause of mould growth.
While these were a few causes of moulds’ growth, there are some seasons and climates such as Spring and Summer, respectively too that encourage the growth of moulds.
