Damp inside drawers / Damp smell

Postby christineh50 » Wed Sep 03, 2008 6:39 pm

Hi can anyone help me. I keep finding signs of a green mould inside my wardrobes, drawers and cupboards in my bed room. This mould only appears on items in the drawers and wardrobe and not actually on the drawer or wardrobe themselves. There is a definate damp smell which is strongest in the monrning. There are no obvious signs of damp of leaks.

probable cause is due lack of ventilation.
open the window slightly and see if this helps first.
