Damp & mould - what to look for

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

Mould is most likely to be found in the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry and is often behind furniture or in wardrobes. The following photos illustrate the kind of mould we don't want to see.

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. (If you can do clean the mould.)
