Prevent mould and damp in your property

Prevent mould and damp in your property

It is important that you take all the steps you can to stop the build up of damp and mould in your home. The Scottish Government have put together a paper which we think will really help you take the steps required to protect your home from unwanted damp and mould. 

Tips include:

  • Produce less moisture - cover pans when cooking, dry clothes outdoors where possible, keep doors closed to prevent the moisture escaping. 

  • Ventilate to remove moisture - ventilate all the time and especially when someone is in, increase ventilation in the kitchen and bathroom.

  • Heat your home a little more - if possible keep low background heat on all day, with background ventilation.
