Condensation, Fungal Mould & Mildew

Moisture is naturally present all around us but when the temperature drops and the surrounding air becomes colder it can form condensation. It is common to see condensation in bathrooms and kitchens for example when bathing, showering, cooking and drying clothes.

Causes

Condensation can become worse during the winter period and often becomes a problem in homes which are not heated or insulated properly. If left to accumulate it can cause stains and damage to wallpaper and window frames and can form into mildew or fungal mould usually appearing as a build up of black spots. Apart from the damage to property, airborne spores produced by the mould can affect respiratory complaints such as asthma.
