Mould and Dampness
It's always unsettling when you find mould growth in your home, and it's understandable to think there is something wrong. However, mould is an issue that can affect even the most cautious tenants and is often caused simply by living in your home.
What Steps are We Taking to Tackle Mould and Dampness?
The cost-of-living crisis, which has seen an unprecedented rise in the cost of energy, has meant many people are unable to heat their homes to tge level they would like. This has meant that reports of dampness and mould in tenants homes has increased.
It is understandable that tenants may become alarmed at the appearance of mould in thier homes. As such we treat each case individually to ensure nothing is overlooked.
When Tenant's report mould in their homes we will arrange a visit to survey the problem, identify any actions that we can carry out and advise them what actions to take to help prevent it reocurring.
We have produced a leaflet which explains the causes of condensation and mould and tips on how to prevent them. All households will receive a copy of this and are urged to follow as many of the recommendations as possible.
