is mould on my ceiling a problem??

hey peeps, 

 

im hoping someone can answer my question.....

 

the room iv been growing in has some mould in the corner of the ceiling, iv just noticed its starting to get a little worse, i know why and it will be fixed in a couple of days once i get my new tent set up but will it cause my plants any problems for now? they are only about 4/5 days from chop so i don't mind doing it now if theres a chance it could spread to the plants, or is that a completely different kind of mould which affects the plants? iv taken a couple of pics but they aren't the greatest.....

Your plants will be fine, I’d be more worried about your own health, those spores are bad for your lungs

It can def spread mate. Don't underestimate mold spores. Where is the intake air being pulled from? If that's the corner of your actual grow room I would be getting it sorted asap tbh.

iv hopefully sorted it already mate,

 

its cause i had a slow leak in the roof and it was dripping on to the insulation in the attic, i fixed the tiles on the roof and lifted all the wet and damp insulation from the attic, in a couple of days once its all dried out i will be painting the ceiling with that anti-mould paint and hopefully that should fix it.

it will ruin your plants but not at this late stage, I use a product called Dettol mold and mildew cleaner spray the walls and ceiling with it.

@craigfjyp nice quick fix buddy.

My place gets the same looking damp mould if the heatings off for a while in winter cos its an old building full of gaps n holes/mildew/high humidity on the coast, right pain in the arse.

But I guess your growrooms gonna be around a constant 25 degrees and you found its a roof leak anyway so thats irrelevant!  I guess venting damp air into your loft is sound as long as the loft has good ventilation?

theres plenty ventilation mate, when your up there during the day looking at the roof its like looking through a fishing net lol  

 

i'm hoping that's what caused it anyway mate, since iv fixed the leak and moved all the damp fibre glass insulation the damp patch hasn't gotten any bigger and the condensation hasn't reappeared since so fingers crossed that's it fixed...
