Condensation and mould
Condensation and mould can be a problem during the colder months of the year.
To help you to minimise condensation and mould in your home this winter take a look at the tips below:
- Dry your washing outside when you can; if you have to dry your washing inside use a clothes airer and keep the door closed and window open.
- Make sure rooms are always well ventilated – keep vents on UPVC windows open. Or open your windows briefly each day.
- Always use extractor fans in the bathroom and kitchen when bathing or cooking.
- Ensure your home is at a constant warm temperature.
If you notice dark or discoloured patches on the walls or ceiling in your home which have a tide mark, this could be a sign of damp which will require further investigation.
