Condensation Control and Black Mould in Sunderland

The Moisture/Condensation Problem

Condensation in the North East is a major problem affecting many homes throughout Sunderland and its suburbs. The problem, if left untreated without effective condensation controls in place, can lead to black mould forming on walls, ceilings, behind wallpapers, bathrooms and any place where there is moisture.

Spores produced by black mould and the moist conditions can also increase the risk of illness such as asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory ailments.

Condensation occurs when moist air comes into contact with a colder surface like a wall, window, mirror etc. The air can’t hold the moisture and tiny drops of water appear. It also occurs in places the air is still, like the corners of rooms, behind furniture or inside wardrobes and under sinks etc.

Tips to reduce condensation in Sunderland

  • When you are cooking always turn the extractor fans on in the kitchen to high power. This will extract any excess moisture from boiling pots and pans.  Opening kitchen windows whilst cooking will provide extra ventilation. Turn the extractor off about 15 minutes after coking to remove any moisture that is still in the air after you have finished cooking.
  • When bathing you need to try to keep the bathroom door closed to prevent moisture from going into the other rooms. After you have finished showering, turn the extractor fan for 15 minutes.
  • Cold air causes warm air to release moisture. To reduce this we suggest that you try to maintain a constant temperature in your house.

Sunderland Mould Reduction Tip - When painting your home we suggest that you add Mouldwyse anti-mould paint additive to your paint. This paint additive mixes with all paints to prevent mould re-growth on walls and organic surfaces. One bottle is good for 5 litres of paint.
Another great product if your a repainting your home is to paint with SureTherm Anti-condensation paint.

How To Get Rid Of  Mould and Damp in Sunderland

We all know that damp creates unsightly patches on the walls and ceilings of your home. Wetness quickly leads to the growth of black mould or regular mould which can lead to the occupants of the home having health issues such as failure of your immune and respiratory systems.

Left untreated, rising damp can cause severe structural damage to your home. It's market value will also take a nosedive given the repairs that will be needed.

 

Causes of Damp in Sunderland

  • Condensation
  • Penetrating damp
  • Rising damp
  • Improperly installed damp-proof membranes
  • Failed damp-proof membranes

Types of Damp

Damp Proofing in Sunderland: Our damp proofing method works by creating a solid barrier against damp - this prevents damp setting back into the wall in the future for the treated walls.

Rising Damp in Sutherland & its Suburbs: Rising damp is a common problem that happens due to homes being built on damp soil. The moisture then rises up through the walls in the property - hence the name 'rising damp'.

Penetrating Damp: This type of damp usually occurs when vulnerable areas allow moisture through them. These include access through roof tiles, clogged guttering, damaged pointing, inadequate damp proofing. Another name for penetrating damp is water ingress or lateral damp.

Condensation: This is the process by which water vapour in the air is changed into liquid water. In other words, the water in the air, a gas known as water vapour, from your hot shower cooled when it met the surface of the cold mirror. This caused the water vapour to condense, or turn into its liquid form. Condensation is a very common moisture problem in homes across the country resulting in moisture gathering in certain areas as well as green and black mould forming on clothing, ceilings, walls, and various surfaces.

Dry Rot: Dry rot is caused when moisture combined with lack of ventilation provides the ideal conditions for fungus to attack. It is important to identify whether wood decay has been caused by dry rot or another wood-destroying fungus such as one of the wet rots. It can affect all types of property in Sunderland, historic or modern and can grow within the cracks and cavities in the walls feeding off debris and wood behind the plaster.

Woodworm: Woodworm is a name given to the infestation of a wooden item by the wood-eating larvae of any of many species of beetle.

If your home or business is located in a flood-prone area, you will require some basement tanking or something similar. This is because basements are situated below the water table. If your home is old, it is more susceptible to rising moisture because it was not built using today’s standards.

How to get rid of mould on walls

Black mould is often a result of condensation. When warm moist air comes into contact with a surface at a lower temperature, the moisture condenses on to it. After a while, mould will start to grow on the surface. We do not suggest using bleach to remove black mould from your walls, we suggest using a mould wash fungicidal concentrate.

When removing mould from painted plaster walls we suggest that you pay special attention to the preparation of the surface, as the mould can cause the painted plaster to flake off.

Our contractors are available for all suburbs of Sunderland, such as Carly Hill, Castletown, Downhill, Hylton Castle, Marina, Springwell, Sunniside, Thorney Close etc.
