Just like us, every home needs to breathe. Stale, damp air needs to go out, and fresh, dry air needs to come in. Our day to day living, like cooking, showering, doing the laundry—even our breathing itself—creates moisture that needs to be flushed out along with any pollutants and irritants. Want to know more about how to reduce mould and dampness in your home? You’re in the right place.
Identify your ventilation hazards
Even the best-designed homes can suffer from poor ventilation in areas - check to see if you've got any of these issues.
- Unventilated bathrooms or kitchen. Showering and cooking create humidity and encourage mould growth.
- Dryer exhaust. Is your dryer vented to the outside? Or pumping moisture into the home?
- Damp basement. Cold, windowless basements are perfect breeding grounds for mould and mildew.
- Cleaning products. Many cleaning products contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), make sure you follow instructions and keep them properly sealed.
- Hot attic. A hot, humid attic can damage your roof and trap heat and act like a blanket covering your home.
- Furniture and floors. Gases released from furniture foam and floors can emit VOCS such as formaldehyde.
- Streaming windows. A sure sign there’s too much moisture in your home.
- Candles and incense. They may smell nice but they fill your home with unhealthy particles.
- New homes. The fresh paint, varnishes and materials in a new home all release chemicals or VOCS.
