The beautiful historic city of Winchester, the former capital of England, with its magnificent Medieval Cathedral, is also home to Winchester University. Of course the students of Winchester University need some where to live and for this reason many of the properties, especially the older, larger ones have been divided into flats or bedsits. It is these type of properties that are very vulnerable to high humidity, condensation, especially during the colder, winter months. The damage caused by condensation and Black Spot Mould fungus is very much underestimated as is the damage it can cause to the health of the occupants.
With the hectic pace of life that people have today, they may experience rushing around in the morning and having a quick hot shower, making a hot drink and leaving washing to dry indoors before you head off to work or University. Inevitably the moisture produced in these activities remains trapped in the property with no means of escape adding litres of water to the atmosphere, which is increased when they arrive back home and cook dinner and maybe shower or bath again before retiring for the night.

We can also install Passive Vapour Vents (PVV) to increase air flow and fit Warm Wall insulation. If you have harmful mould we can apply a fungicidal mould wash and paint your walls with a fungicidal paint so call Tapco HomeDry first.
It has been highlighted in the press recently that Black Spot Mould Fungus (Aspergillus app) (Above image) can have a detrimental affect on your health, if you already experience respiratory problems this is even more problematic. Condensation is the most common damp problem a property of any size or style can have and is far more likely to occur in the cold, winter months, when we close ourselves in and turn the heating up. The first signs are often noticed in the morning when the widows are misted over and running with water, sometimes pooling on the sills.
The good news is you can control condensation and live in a dry healthy environment.
