The secret to managing mould is controlling moisture and condensation with good ventilation. Clann understands that keeping your property mould free can be challenging, but in order to manage the issue it requires your participation.
Following these four easy steps regularly, will make your property mould free and help to manage the problem.
Moisture Creates Mould.
Condensation happens when moist air meets a cold surface. Mould is happening in your property because of steam from daily showers. When the steam rises and hits your colder walls or ceilings, it condenses which ends in mould growth in your bathrooms.
Remove any mould that is currently in the bathroom. Apply diluted bleach solution to the wall or use a recognised mould spray such as HG Mould Remover available in hardware shops.
Stop mould from returning
Use the extractor fan in your bathroom when the shower is in use and for at least 30 minutes or one hour after use. If the fan turns off automatically, turn it on again. Keep the bathroom door closed during this time
After one hour, open the bathroom door, open two windows in the property and leave the internal doors between the windows and the bathroom open. Do this for as long as possible
The radiator in your bathroom should be used to dry the air each day. If not used, the air in the bathroom will retain moisture, leading to condensation
Try not to dry towels/clothes on the radiator in the bathroom, this adds additional moisture to the bathroom air which leads to condensation.
Report Mould that Continues to Return
After following the previous steps, it is very important that you keep an eye on the situation. If mould continues to return, try to identify if the steps above were followed properly
Note the date if any mould shows up again and take a picture. Keep following the steps described above for a full month and take another picture of the mould
Send both pictures and dates into Clann’s Contact Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org This will let Clann know how fast the mould is coming back.
