Damp in all rooms!!

Postby kayleigh moxon » Tue Feb 10, 2009 1:29 pm

I have lived in a house for 6 months now and there is damp spreading in every room :( ... i think the landlord or the person who owned the house before the lanlord painted over the mould but it has come back through really really bad... its black and even growing white fur mold on it :? ... he has now been to the house and just painted over it again claiming it is paint that leaks into the bricks and cures the damp... i could be wrong but i think he is bluffing us becasue we are 2 young girls that live in the house and he thinks we dont know any better :x ... has any one got any advice of what needs to be done... he says he doesnt know him self so if i could get a list of all the equipment he needs so he can do it and what he needs to do then he has no more excuses to fob us off... one of us is even ill from it now and its getting so frustrating... any help will be much appreciated and welcomed.

Thanks :)

The damp isn't coming into the house - It's trying to get out!

It is condensation. If you look in the projects section on here you will find a lot more information. Sorry but I haven't got time to go through it all just now.

Good Luck.
