Houses are becoming more airtight as we try to make our homes more energy efficient. Without a good source of fresh air in your home, condensation and mould problems start to arise which can cause problems to your health and home.
There is nothing more frustrating than spending time, money and effort keeping your home in perfect condition only to be rewarded by the appearance of mould. Unfortunately, mould can appear in any room of the house, it’s not just a problem exclusive to bathrooms it can appear around window frames, behind furniture, on mattresses, walls, floors, ceilings and doors. It can even find its way into your wardrobe and on to your clothing, shoes and bags!
Apart from being unsightly and ruining your decor, there is growing evidence to suggest that it is also bad for your health. It can cause headaches, breathing difficulties as well as nausea and fatigue. What’s more, mould is a recognised allergen and irritant, it has also been identified as a trigger for respiratory problems such as Asthma.
The good news is that one of the most common causes of mould is condensation dampness, a problem which affects millions of homes in the UK. Surprisingly, it is easy to resolve once you have identified the problem and ruled out any issues with rising or penetrating damp.
