Do you want to get rid of dampness in walls? We give you some convenient tips.

Dampness in the house is a difficult problem for many households. You can easily end up with dampness, mould or mildew on the walls or on the ceiling. Most frequently this problem occurs in the bathroom. Particularly on the silicon seals between the bath tub and the tiled wall, in the shower cubicle or on plaster. We provide a few tips for removing mould and mildew on walls and ceilings. 

Causes of dampness in walls and on ceilings

dampness in wallsMoulds love a damp and warm environment with little ventilation, such as the bathroom. Water vapour is released during showering or when you take a bath. If the room is poorly ventilated, the vapour will condensate. Condensation is small water droplets that stick to colder surfaces. For example, the mirror, the wall or the ceiling. If the damp does not leave those surfaces, you end up with damp patches and condensation on the walls. 

So mould, damp and mildew stains are often on the wall or the ceiling, because those are a little rougher and more permeable. As soon as you have mould, it is important to remove it. Moulds are bad for your health.
