How can you ventilate your property and prevent damp and mould from growing? Here are six recommendations:

Idea 1

Open windows regularly to allow fresh air to circulate throughout your home. This is especially important in rooms where moisture is likely to build up, such as the bathroom and kitchen.

Idea 2

Use exhaust/ extractor fans in areas where moisture is likely to accumulate, such as the bathroom and kitchen. These fans help to remove moisture and prevent it from collecting on surfaces and encouraging mould growth.

Idea 3

Consider installing ventilation systems, such as Positive Input Ventilation systems (PIV units), to help circulate fresh air throughout your home.

Idea 4

Make sure your gutters and downspouts are clear and in good working order. Clogged gutters can cause water to collect on your roof and seep into your walls, leading to dampness and mould.

Idea 5

Repair any leaks or water damage promptly to prevent mould from growing. This includes fixing leaky roofs, pipes, and appliances, as well as cleaning up any water that has collected on floors or other surfaces.

Idea 6

Keep your home clean and free of clutter, as this can provide mould with the ideal conditions to grow.

By taking these steps, you can help to ventilate your property and prevent dampness and mould from growing. It is also important to regularly inspect your home for signs of mold, such as a musty odour or discoloured patches on walls and ceilings, and to address any problems promptly.
