Soils where your indoor plants are residing can support fungal growth and can be an added source of moisture in your home. Mould uses dead leaves and soil as a source of nutrients and plants could be bringing in outdoor moulds into your house should they be transported from the outside. Moulds typically are not a problem until they find their way into your home. Mould allergy and sensitivity are becoming more recognized because of the interest in household mould problems. Pollen from plants can also be an added allergen around your home.
  • Allergic reaction is the most common symptom to exposure to mould
  • Red itchy eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Respiratory problems
  • Skin irritation
Reduce the number of plants in the house and cover top of pot with foil, plastic or a thick layer of pebbles. Try not to over water plants and be aware of musty odors.

Don’t have a designated place in your home specifically for plants- this will increase humidity resulting in favorable conditions for mould to develop on your plants, and elsewhere. Spread plants throughout your house and away from humid areas. Keep dead leaves off plants by pruning them regularly.

If you are concerned about your plants putting mould spores into your home or are concerned your home may have been used as a Marijuana Growhouse call Home Heroes today for Mould Sampling and Analysis of the air that your family breathes!
