Riverland & Mallee locals who have Asthma are warned risks may be higher for mould and dust mites as cold and wet weather sets in for winter.

There's growing suggestion higher than average rainfall could continue providing the perfect breeding ground for mould and mites to multiply.

National Asthma Council's Sensitive Choice Program's Adele Taylor said “Mould thrives in warm, damp environments and can make itself at home anywhere there is low air flow or excess moisture, such as built-in wardrobes and in bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms”.

Ms Taylor added “For the 2.7 million Australians living with asthma it is important to take control now to ensure you have a healthy home as higher indoor humidity levels make it easier for mould and dust mites to multiply”.
