A guide to condensation, damp and mould
Introduction to damp and mould growth
Here you will find information and advice to help landlords and tenants to identify and reduce condensation as well as treating the mould growth that often comes with it.
Damp can cause mould on walls and furniture and make window frames rot. Damp housing encourages the growth of mould and mites, as mites feed on mould and can increase the risk of respiratory illnesses in some people.
It is important to understand the different causes to allow effective treatment.
