If mould is in your home, Dr Tang recommends improving air flow by opening the windows and to ensure air vents are working.
“If there are small areas of damp on walls or windows, clean them with a mixture of water and bleach,” he said, adding: “Wear a mask while doing this and protective gloves.”
Dr Tang added: “However, if you suspect mould could be harming your health and you are displaying symptoms of mould toxicity speak to a mould expert.”
