Preventing Damp, Mould and Condensation

Advice on dealing with damp and mould

Condensation is a common problem in Mendip and may lead to black mould on walls ceilings and behind cupboards.  It is often caused by simply living in your home as many activities we do produce moisture, such as breathing, cooking and showering.  Damp may also be caused by structural defects resulting in rising or penetrating damp, or a lack of efficient heating, insulation or ventilation.
