Mould in the home
Mould is a serious issue. It isn’t nice to look at when going about your day and it certainly isn’t doing your home any favours in the long run. Some people think that that a little bit of mould won’t harm them or their home, but it can cause long-term health issues and major structural damage to your home. In order to counter act the effects of mould, you might need to get in touch with a builder and joiner. With that in mind, What Causes Damp & Mould? Here are three ways that you can protect your house against mould growth.
You should have multiple extractor fan installed in both your kitchen and your bathroom, and make sure that you use them every time you cook or have a bath or shower. Cooking and bathing produce moisture, which then settles on surfaces which causes condensation and ultimately mould. Therefore, using an extractor fan to remove this excess moisture reduces the possibility of Damp In The Home.
Ventilation really helps in preventing mould growth. You need to ensure that there is a good flow of air throughout your house, especially in areas where lots of condensation can build up, such as your kitchen and bathroom. You can do this by opening windows whenever possible, and making sure that all air vents are open and unobstructed.
Dry wet clothes outside
Wet clothes are yet another major source of mould growth in the home. Many people will dry their wet laundry inside, usually either nearby or on top of their radiators. This is a critical mistake to be making. You need your radiators to be unobstructed in order for them to work properly and reduce mould, and putting wet clothes on them simply increases the amount of moisture in the air in your home, causing more mould growth.
