Mould Growth

Damp surfaces on plaster, wallpaper and timber are often subject to the growth of mould which is associated with condensation in many structures. Damp can lead to other issues like changes in the appearance of the surface, damp odour and fear of health and hygiene. You may see the growth of various colours including green, yellow, pink, black, grey or white. Among all these, black moulds are the most common.

The development of black mould comes from the source of moisture, though suitable temperature, oxygen also encourage their growth. The moisture content often has different water availability which is difficult for mould development.

There are several domestic activities which encourages condensation.

  • The loft space contains warmer air mixing with air drawn in through eaves in the roof.
  • The fresh warmer air is then drawn into the unit where it flows through a special kind of air filter.
  • The filtered air is introduced through the diffuser grille which is located centrally at ceiling level in the landing of your property. The air is then circulated throughout the property.
  • When the fresh air mixes with the warm air in the property, condensation can then be stopped.
  • The dirty air is excluded through the natural leakage points which help to prevent cold draughts from entering into your property.
