Good ventilation helps remove moisture.
Without good air flow in your home, excess moisture may appear on your walls, windows and floors. Open windows for short periods of time to ventilate.
If your windows have trickle vents make sure you leave them open during the day. This allows moisture to escape.
Make sure air vents are not blocked and kept clean, as they allow for natural airflow and moisture to escape.
Bathroom extractor fans
Use when bathing or showering. Extractor fans are very cost effective to run. Baths and showers make a lot of humidity. Close the door and switch on the extractor fan or open a window until the moisture is cleared.
Kitchen extractor fans
Use when cooking in the kitchen. Keep extractor fan/heat ventilation isolator switches turned on as extra moisture will contribute to mould growth.
Try to get rid of unnecessary items to clear space along the walls. If it is not possible to clear, then store items on a shelf. Good air flow is important to circulate the heat and helps push moisture out. This will help prevent “dead patches” where mould can form.
To speed up ventilation, wipe down your windows and surfaces with a clean cloth to remove excess moisture.
