MOISTURE IS EVERYWHERE
Moisture is found in every house. This is logical, because wherever things live there is moisture.
Places you don't often go to, such as the garage, shed, boat, caravan and meter cupboard. Places with little or no ventilation that remain out of sight. But also places that you do see, and where you least expect it, such as the living room, kitchen, hall, toilet and bedrooms.
Prevent moisture becoming a problem!
MOISTURE IN THE HOME
Moisture emerges in different ways in houses. We produce moisture with the things we do each day, such as breathing (people and pets), sleeping, cooking, showering, doing the washing-up, watering plants, etc.
Identifying moisture problems
The surplus moisture we produce can build up and cause a relatively high level of humidity in the air. This can bring with it all sorts of problems.
How do you identify a humid environment?
PREVENTING PROBLEMS WITH MOISTURE
Better insulation of our houses has led to poorer levels of ventilation, which in turn upsets the humidity balance.
When problems occur from the inside because of water vapour, you can easily do a combination of things to improve the humidity balance.
MOULD IN AND AROUND THE HOUSE
Mould arises when moisture in the air is unable to escape outside. Unfortunately it’s very common in places where it is moist and warm, such as bathrooms.
As soon as the first signs of mould are visible, it starts spreading very quickly. And this is bad news for you and your home. The mould produces spores that can irritate the skin and cause other physical complaints. Therefore ensure that you have an effective way of preventing the growth of mould and then prevent regrowth.
Do not give mould a chance!
