Why have I got Black Mould?
Black mould is the unfortunate, unsightly and unhealthy side affect of condensation. Mould is a living organism and it has more characteristics of an animal than a plant. It can wreak havoc with your health. The young and old are particularly vulnerable. Most people could put up with the wet windows but when the mould starts to grow, thats when people become embarrassed about the problems that they have. They clean the mould week after week but it just grows back, they insulate the affected area but the mould just starts to grow elsewhere. The mould is not your problem, the moisture levels are - Once the moisture problem is under control the mould will simply die as a result.
How do our Systems work to address the moisture levels?
Our Systems quite simply prevent condensation on windows and walls by using Positive Pressure. The simplest explanation that we have found is that they work in the same way as a car demister - introducing and circulating the air so the windows become clear. Switch the demister off and if the car is occupied the condensation build up will begin again. It's the same scenario in our homes.
By pushing fresh, filtered air gently into the hallway or individual rooms it doesn’t allow the stale air to settle. You now have constant air movement and the air will be exchanged up to 4 times per day.
