Is your home damp? Damp can cause mould on walls and furniture and make window frames rot. Damp cold housing encourages the growth of mould and mites, as mites feed on moulds and can increase the risk of respiratory illnesses in some people.
Some damp is caused by condensation. This Scottish Government has produced information that explains how condensation forms and way in which you can keep it to a minimum, so reducing the risk of dampness and mould growth.
Please watch the Reducing Condensation YouTube video for tips on how to treat dampness.
