But one word, VENTILATION with airflow comes no mould !!

This is correct as far as it goes. However there are mold spores in air , just as there are yeast spores, and goodness knows what else, certainly a lot of dirt.

So it's there, all around, so use your oil of cloves spray at reasonable intervals to keep it away after cleaning it out.. Bloody nuisance, I say.
