Eliminating mould and damp from the home can be simple and cost effective.

What causes black spot mould and how can you go about eliminating mould in the home?

Condensation is the main reason for black spot mould in the home. It is caused by warm air touching cold surfaces.

Convection based heating warms air but doesn't warm surfaces. This creates warm air touching cold surfaces. This creates condensation which then develops into black spot mould.

Here’s a guide on the action of convection heat and the action of infrared heat.

There can be various types of mould in the home, this interesting article about different types of mould in the home from the company Environment discusses the various types of mould that you may find in the home.

It is best to get rid of any mould growing in your home.

When you have eliminated the mould you can introduce preventative measures.

How can you stop black spot mould forming

To reduce, rather than eliminate the problem you need to ensure adequate ventilation and insulation. This will often leave the problem, though not of the same severity.

Perhaps only one room or wall is affected meaning that resolving ventilation issues is not going to be a cost effective way to fix the issue.

The way you heat the space has a huge impact on surfaces suffering with condensation and black spot mould.

Convection heating is one of the main causes of black spot mould. Infrared heating will greatly reduce / eliminate black spot mould.

Why does infrared heating stop spot condensation?

Infrared heats objects and people directly. Convection heats the air. Infrared heat does not therefore create an issue where warm air touches cold surfaces.
