How can I stop mould?

Mould comes from moisture and condensation, so you need to follow these tips to keep your home free of mould:

  1. Prevent moisture from spreading throughout your house, so whether you’re cooking, having a shower or just sleeping, close doors and open windows (even if they’re only slightly open)
  2. Where you see condensation, wipe it dry to stop mould from growing. This can be on windows and sills, surfaces in your kitchen or bathroom.
  3. Drying clothes – this releases a lot of moisture into the air, click here to find out how to fix this. [Create a link dedicated webpage about drying clothes indoors]
