It is a further unfortunate truth that the mould spores in a shower are constantly disturbed by you using the shower making them become airborne.
Once these millions of mould spores are airborne they are easily inhaled in a shower. This is why they are described as mould the silent killer and is why Cancer Australia is actively promoting healthy lungs and asking “what’s your cough telling you” and encouraging you to download their brochure.
