What causes mould?
Mould grows best in damp areas, such as the bathroom and kitchen, but also in cellars and sheds. Moulds develop where there is lots of condensation from warm air in combination with little or no ventilation.
For example, black mould in the bathroom caused by hot steam that floats down onto tiles, grout and windows after showering. In addition to the bathroom, the kitchen is also a favourite place for mould to grow due to the hot steam when cooking and insufficient extraction.
