Mould and Damp Damage in Southampton
Everyday activities like cooking, showering and drying clothes can cause high levels of moisture in your property. When moist air comes into contact with a cold surface the air is unable to hold the same amount of moisture, so it is released onto the surface leaving it wet. This is when condensation occurs.
Mould needs a food source, which can be common materials found in the home – such as wallpaper, plasterboard, paint, some carpets, wood fabrics and other organic materials.
Mould is common in dark areas, such as behind wardrobes, but doesn’t actually need darkness to grow. It takes between 4-12 hours to begin the germination process and after this, it can then take time for the mould to actually develop and create spores. Depending on the type of mould which is growing, it can take several days or up to two weeks to fully mature. Mould can leave an unpleasant smell and you should notice the black spores as they develop.
If you have any queries or have a damp or mould problem in your home, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with our Southampton damp specialists team today.
