Should I be concerned about a serious health risk to me and my family?

To help avoid this trigger:

  • Ensure the house is well ventilated.
  • Ensure damp and mould in the home is treated quickly.
  • Avoid areas (such as gardens or compost) that may contain mould spores.
  • When showering or cooking, keep internal doors closed to prevent damp air from spreading through the house and use extractor fans.
  • Try not to dry clothes indoors, store clothes in damp cupboards or pack clothes too tightly in wardrobes.
