Damp & mould - what to look for

Note if there is a damp, mouldy smell and inspect walls, ceilings, flooring (e.g. carpet should not be rotting), window frames and glazing, curtains and blinds for signs of mildew or mould.

Mould is most likely to be found in the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry and can often be found behind furniture or in wardrobes. 

Small specks of mould on tile grout or silicon sealant and on window frames or sills are acceptable in HomeFit as they are hard to avoid but do clean the mould if you can.
