Mould

Black mould growth

Mould on walls is an unsightly problem in many houses. It is often a sign of a larger more serious problem and needs to be thoroughly investigated. Mould in houses can be a result of underlying damp problems. Damp and mould are closely related and need to be dealt with in a timely manner, as mould on walls can be a serious health hazard.

Mould is often found in naturally damp rooms like bathrooms and kitchens, but can also appear in other rooms. Mould on windows, in bathrooms and in the kitchen is often caused by condensation, whilst black mould on walls and mould on ceilings can be a result of rising damp or penetrating damp.

Signs of Mould on Walls

Obvious signs of mould on walls are discolouration and the appearance of black spots on wallpaper or paintwork. However, mould can also grow inside walls or behind them, in wall cavities. Small signs of mould on wall surfaces can be a sign of a much larger mould infestation behind the wall. Musty odours or increased allergic reactions can also indicate a mould infestation inside the house.
