    What causes damp and mould?

    Damp and mould is caused by condensation, which is when excess warm moisture in the air like steam or water vapour meets a cold surface and turns into water. Over time, this can cause patches of damp or mould to form. This can be more common in rooms with poor ventilation or insulation, which can make it more difficult to treat. There are often other factors at play in creating damp and mould, which is why it is important to investigate it as soon as possible.

    To help you spot this as early as possible, we have a dedicated page full of tips and advice.
