Condensation & Mould

Condensation & Mould

If you notice black mould in your home, it could be as a result of condensation. Condensation occurs from water vapour that cannot escape from the building. Moisture is always present in the air even if it cannot be seen and can come from, for example, using showers without opening windows, cooking with uncovered pans or hanging wet clothes around your home to dry. Condensation occurs when the moist air comes into contact with a cold surface like a window, or wall where the air flow is reduced by furniture.

5 things you can do are:

  1. Open windows in the morning to allow the moist air to leave and fresh air to enter.
  2. Keep trickle vents on windows open.
  3. Open windows when cooking/showering to allow moisture to escape.
  4. Dry clothes in a well ventilated area (not on radiators) and keep windows open. 
  5. In cold weather it is better to maintain a consistent level of heating throughout your home rather than extreme temperature changes, keep the heating on low when you are out.

If you do get black mould, it can usually be wiped away with a moist cloth/diluted cleaning solution. If you have any questions, the Property Services Team would be pleased to help. Call us on 0141 331 6652
