Mould and damp are very common concerns in a lot of households. We explore the health impact of leaving these issues untreated.

We offer comprehensive solutions to all your damp, condensation and ventilation problems and will provide you with a customised report to highlight areas of concern. Contact our team on 01202 737739 for more details.
Condensation is especially prevalent during the colder winter months, as the difference in temperature between the cold outdoors and warm indoors is at its most dramatic. Moisture will build up in the air of your home as you breathe, take a shower, cook or dry clothes and condense on windows and walls.
The easiest way to combat this is to open your windows and let fresh air circulate throughout your home, or use an extractor fan. If you are concerned with the condensation in your home, contact our team to help provide a solution to your problem.
Poor ventilation and high humidity in your home can eventually lead to the build up of mould on your floors, walls, ceiling and even furniture. Mould is easily identified by black or green spotting and a musty smell and can cause health problems, such as allergic reactions and cold-like symptoms.
We are experts in providing damp proofing solutions for those affected by mould infestations, and will help improve the ventilation in your property.
High levels of moisture in the air of your home can wrinkle and peel wall paint, leading to possible health issues and extra maintenance costs.
With poor ventilation, bad smells will linger in your home, as there is no movement of air to remove them. Not only is this off-putting for yourself and guests, If the odours you are constantly breathing in are smoke related, or another harmful chemical, it can lead to long-term health issues.
Low oxygen levels
Poor ventilation will result in an eventual build up of carbon dioxide and little oxygen, which means you could suffer from shortness of breath, headaches and fatigue.
