Problems With Mould, Mildew And Condensation?
Condensation, Mould and Mildew
Condensation, Mould and Mildew is a result of warm moist air coming into contact with a cold surface in severe cases it results in a black mould growth which generally occurs on windows, bedrooms, backs of beds and in areas which have poor air circulation, unfortunately mould is often misdiagnosed as rising damp.
The origin of the water is our ‘life- style’, that is our daily moisture production from cooking, washing, how we dry our clothes and even breathing. These problems can be resolved firstly by making sure that it is a condensation problem and not rising damp and then introducing a way to remove the condense from the air and by promoting a good air flow from within the envelope of the property.
The traditional way to achieve good air flow is to use wall vents. But these are known to cause draughts and only work correctly if the air has a passage through the house.
Positive Pressure Ventilation
A positive pressure ventilation unit will draw warm air from your loft space and move it slowly through the property. The system also provides a small heating element, which warms the air if the temperature falls below a certain level, keeping your home at a moderate temperature and avoiding unnecessary draughts. This system not only introduces dry air to your home it also prevents wide temperature variation, helping to eradicate cold spots and reduce the chances of condensation forming in your home.
