Mould problems can occur all year round, however they usually worsen throughout the winter months.
What is mould?
Mould is a fungus that spreads quickly where excess moisture is present. Cold rooms or poor ventilation helps it to rapidly grow in your home or business.
What causes mould?
More often than not mould (black mould) is caused by condensation. Air contains water vapour; however the amount depends on the temperature of your property. The warmer the temperature, the more water can be stored in the air, however, when that warm air meets cold air, or a cold surface, the water contained in the air is released to form condensation.
This condensation causes mould growth to form on walls, nearby furniture and soft furnishings.
Is there anything I can do to stop mould growth?
Firstly you can look to reduce the amount of condensation in your property. Energy efficiency works mean that your building’s natural exposure to air has been reduced, so it is especially important to move the air around, replacing the old stale air with fresh clean air.
