The East of London has long been regarded as one of the up-and-coming parts of the capital. Long term developments around the docklands and Canary Wharf stand alongside more traditional neighbourhoods found in areas such as Hackney and Lewisham.
As part of the city with a mercantile and industrial history, East London has higher density housing than average, although more suburban parts can be found towards the Essex border.
Busy streets in the region mean that air pollution can be a major problem in East London, and many residents also find that, particularly in older properties without good insulation, condensation can develop quickly into damp and mould.
Condensation can be a problem in almost any type of property. Modern flats are often almost airtight to make them more energy efficient, however this traps moisture which can find cool spots and settle to form condensation and damp. In older homes, exterior walls without cavity insulation will often act as a magnet for moisture and lead to mould growth, especially in bathrooms and kitchens.
Quickly extracting humid air from kitchens and bathrooms prevents condensation. Reducing the concentration of water vapour in the air with a well-positioned extractor fan stops steam from cooking and bathing from condensing on walls where it would otherwise create the perfect environment for mould.
If you suffer from poor air quality in your home, it can have a negative impact on your health. The combination of outdoor pollution building up indoors and the presence of domestic allergens including mould, pollen, and chemicals from cleaning products can cause issues for those suffering from respiratory conditions.
Improving the airflow from bathrooms and kitchens with modern extractor fans prevents problems with condensation leading to damp and mould, while the installation of a modern whole house ventilation system will provide filtered air throughout the property and reduce the concentration of pollutants.
If you are considering a renovation project, incorporating a positive input ventilation system into the work is an effective way to improve air quality. PIV systems make a big difference to overall air quality by drawing air through filters and into your home at roof level. This is above the level where the worst street pollution can be found. This filtered air is gently dispersed throughout your home to replace stale air without needing to open your windows and let in noise from outside.
