Damp and mould

Damp and mould growth are caused by excess moisture, which can be worse in cold weather due to a lack of heating and ventilation. To reduce damp and mould growth in your home, you can:

  • maintain low level background heating and avoid heating just one room
  • always ensure that fitted extractor fans are in use and windows are open when bathing/showering and cooking.
  • improve ventilation by opening windows for a short period every morning to let out the moisture which has built up overnight
  • remove condensation and moisture from windows and surfaces as soon as it appears
  • try to avoid drying clothes on radiators or heaters
  • keep a small gap between large pieces of furniture and the walls to allow air to circulate
