Cleaning mould off ceilings is a fairly grim job, but knowing how to remove mould from ceilings is essential as it's a job you can't get away with leaving. Mould spores can multiply at a rather nasty rate, so when mould is left to grow and fester it is not only unsightly, but it can be toxic. 

Mould produces allergens that can cause allergic reactions, respiratory problems, sneezing, skin rashes and even asthma attacks, according to the NHS.

Amy spent over a decade in London editing and writing for The Daily Telegraph, MailOnline, and Metro.co.uk before moving to East Anglia where she began renovating a period property in rural Suffolk. During this time she also did some TV work at ITV Anglia and CBS as well as freelancing for Yahoo, AOL, ESPN and The Mirror. When the pandemic hit she switched to full-time building work on her renovation and spent nearly two years focusing solely on that. She's taken a hands-on DIY approach to the project, knocking down walls, restoring oak beams and laying slabs with the help of family members to save costs. She has largely focused on using natural materials, such as limestone, oak and sisal carpet, to put character back into the property that was largely removed during the eighties. The project has extended into the garden too, with the cottage's exterior completely re-landscaped with a digger and a new driveway added. She has dealt with de-listing a property as well as handling land disputes and conveyancing administration.
