Damp and mould

Overview

Mould in your home can be caused by condensation or damp. Condensation is often mistaken for damp but they are very different.

Condensation is produced by normal every day activities like cooking, bathing or showering.

Damp is caused by a defect in the structure of your home such a leaking pipe or sink, or slates missing from your roof.

Even though condensation and damp are different, you are likely to have problems with mould unless action is taken to remove the cause.
