Out with the mould. In with the new.

If you know your home has a dampness problem, you’re definitely not alone. Black mould growing on walls, wardrobes and carpets, weeping windows, and cold, wet air to breathe is a problem for many.

A damp problem in a house means that water is somehow getting into the walls, floors or ceilings and this can happen for a number of reasons including cracked pipes, a loose or missing roof tile, or moisture is coming up from the soil and that some bricks are now porous.

But there is a fix and the solution is simple. All it takes is improving the ventilation in your home.

The signs of dampness and poor ventilation can often be quite obvious. Condensation is a sign that a house isn’t properly ventilated. As is rising damp, which leaves ‘water’ marks on walls and brickwork in older homes. But in newer homes, which are built to be almost airtight under building regulations and therefore signs of poor ventilation aren’t always initially visible and may exist in the form of excessive moisture that can’t escape and hidden damp, which accumulates over time.

When damp and mould are allowed to grow, they can be a trigger for asthma attacks, cause flu, fatigue and even more severe respiratory illnesses. Find out what our AirQ ventilation systems can do for you.
