Recently you might’ve seen photos of leather shoes and bags at a Malaysian mall covered in mould after being left alone for the past few months during the movement control order (MCO).
With the humid atmosphere and no proper air circulation, mould has started to grow on other surfaces as well. One of them is cinema seats!
Several photos posted on social media shows the horrifying sight of white and fuzzy mould covering all the seats in a cinema theatre somewhere in Malaysia.
It wasn’t specified where the exact location is, but netizens are saying it happened in Ipoh, Perak, reported China Press. Needless to say, this could be the case for other cinema theatres in Malaysia as well since all cinema businesses were not in operation for the past few months.
Mould grows in moist environments and fabrics such as upholstery can absorb the moisture from the air and provide an ideal place for mould to grow, according to Home Guides.
This poses a serious risk to the health of anyone who goes to these places if they were to reopen without proper deep cleansing as mould can cause respiratory problems. According to WebMD, exposure to mould can irritate your eyes, skin, nose, throat and lungs.
Some people who are more sensitive to mould could experience allergic reactions like sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, skin rash and asthma attacks for those with asthma.
Now that businesses are starting to open again, we hope that the owners will look into this serious problem and get rid of all signs of mould before letting customers back into their shops. If you spot mould on surfaces, do alert the shop owners about it.
