High humidity levels (drying washing in the home, showering with no extraction system in place and cooking with no extraction to the outside), poor air flow and incorrect usage of heating can all contribute to condensation forming within the home. Even as we sleep we breathe out moisture laden air and we produce roughly the equivalent of 6 pints of water every day per person!
High air moisture levels within the home shows as moisture settling onto the internal surfaces on walls of the home, sometimes settling inside wardrobes and cupboards on clothing etc. These areas of space are called “stagnant pockets of air”. The mould spores which can be found floating freely in the air around us can then settle in this thin layer of condensed moisture and they will grow, often showing as black mould. This can be wiped away using bleach based fluids but unless the core problem is addressed then the problem of mould and its associated health problems will always return.
These types of mould are categorised as medium to severe with regard to personal health issues.
During the night, air temperatures can cool and cause damp along your walls. The right ventilation systems can stop this from happening, and our team advise and supply you with the best options.
