Does your home have mould or condensation?

Most homes are affected by condensation at some point. 

Condensation is caused by water vapour or moisture coming into contact with a colder surface, like a window or wall, and soaking into wallpaper, paintwork or plasterwork. Over time, black mould grows in the affected areas.

Condensation mainly occurs during the colder months. It’s usually found in the corners of rooms, on north-facing walls and around windows. It's also found in areas with very little air circulation such as behind wardrobes and beds - especially if they're pushed up against external walls.
