Coastal provides high-quality, affordable homes that are properly maintained through planned maintenance. It’s important you report any repairs and maintenance issues that might occur outside of planned maintenance, so that these can be properly addressed.
Areas of damp in your home could lead to the formation of mould; mould can sometimes cause ill-health or make existing health conditions worse, so it’s important it’s addressed.
There are a few reasons why a property may be affected by damp including issues with roofing, gutters, windows or walls. These can lead to water penetrating through from the outside to the inside of the property. If your home is affected by damp in this way, please let us know quickly by calling 01792 619400 or emailing email@example.com so we can identify the cause and take action.
One of the most common causes of damp and mould inside the home is condensation. Condensation occurs when moisture in the air meets cold surfaces and condenses into water droplets. This can be a sign that the room isn’t properly ventilated and/or heated. Condensation can be dealt with by controlling how moist air is managed in the home and is not normally something that requires a repairs visit by Coastal.
Moisture can be introduced into the home in lots of different ways including cooking, showering, bathing, drying clothes indoors and even by breathing. An average family will generate around 20 pints of moisture in the home every day.
The more moisture is in the air, the worse condensation is likely to be. It is often worse in winter when surfaces are colder and most homes have less ventilation. Condensation can form on indoor surfaces such as mirrors, windows, windowsills walls and even inside cupboards. In the home, condensation sometimes occurs when warm, damp air from kitchens or bathrooms moves to cooler areas, such as bedrooms.
If you’ve taken the steps above and yet continue to experience mould in your home and still don’t see any improvement after a few weeks, please contact us on 01792 619400 so we can help.
