annoying condensation problem

Postby scott2654 » Wed Jan 21, 2009 5:49 pm

Hello All

I have a very annoying condensation problem in a small walk in wardrobe from my bedroom.

When I moved in two years ago(house built early 1900s) the wardrobe had door on it which i took off for extra space but now the north west corner of the wardrobe gets wet and mould starts to grow.

I have put a air brick in which has improved the wetness but it has not gone away.

I'm not sure what to do next after reading some stuff on here should I plaster board the wall or do you guys think i should put on the old door back on.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks Scott

Try door first, the mould is a symptom of exessive hudity so need to consider how to reduce this by improving ventilation . by dryling the walls of wardrobe this should increase wall temp but could simply move cold spot to another area.
