The most common damp problem in flats is condensation. The layout of flats often prevents the possibility of an effective ventilation regime, making it difficult to exchange vapour-saturated air for fresh air. Some rooms, like bathrooms, might not have any windows, thereby hindering the exchange of air and stimulating mould growth when water vapour condenses on cold surfaces.
How to Prevent Mould Growth Caused by Damp Problems in Flats
It is always advised to adhere to a correct ventilation and heating regime to prevent damp problems in flats caused by condensation. However, when it proves difficult to ventilate rooms, other means of preventing damp problems in flats need to be found. One such option is the use of Dryzone Mould-Resistant Emulsion Paint.
Dryzone Mould-Resistant Emulsion Paint protects walls against the growth of black mould for at least 5 years. This proves particularly useful for rooms in which a lot of water vapour typically accumulates, such as bathrooms and kitchens.
How to Clean Mould on Walls Caused by Damp Problems in Flats
When damp problems occur in bathrooms, kitchens or any other room of the flat, the result is often mould on walls and ceilings. Before an application of Dryzone Mould-Resistant Emulsion Paint can take place, all mould needs to be cleaned off the affected walls in the flat. SoluGuard Multi-Surface Biocide is recommended for this use.
SoluGuard Multi-Surface Biocide is a high strength, ready-for-use biocide ideal for the removal of mould growth on walls and ceilings in flats. The product is low in odour, non-flammable and will not stain treated surfaces.
