Now the Autumn weather is setting in and we are starting to experience colder weather the humidity content will probably increase in houses as most people close their windows and this can cause problems in bathrooms and kitchens and mould or mildew can form more easily.
Mould and mildew is often mistaken as damp. It is our experience that In over 31 years of dealing with so-called damp problems reported by tenants most of these cases are in fact not damp but simply mould and mildew caused by poor air circulation and lack of ventilation sometimes caused by belongings placed against walls.
Unfortunately, there is no magic fix to condensation, mould and mildew but it is accepted that a balance of heating and ventilation is the formulae which helps keep mould and condensation under control. This will vary depending on people’s life styles.
Also by regularly treating mould spores as they form is also an important factor in keeping it under control.
Dettol Mould and Mildew Remover is an easy product to use and is very effective providing it is used regularly. This can be bought at most supermarkets and is highly recommended. It can also be used on the black double glazing seals on the insides of windows where mould often grows.
Always follow the manufacturers nstructions on the bottle and use in a well ventilated area.
