    I discovered this evening that my flat has a serious damp problem. Easy enough to cure, except that it's lead to a mould problem all around the flat.. So bad in fact that I need to throw away and replace all my furnature.


    I am not happy.

    Oh, this also meant the TRF R06 tourney may need to be delayed for a while.

    Sorry to hear that. Damp isn't good.

    It explains why I've been frequently feeling ill for the last 2 years anyway. I currently have 1 domestic and one industrial dehumidifier working in the 2 bedrooms with an industrial fan each getting the air circulating.

    I've got a builder coming out at the weekend to quote for installing a series of airbricks throughout the flat.

    The paint work I did in my bedroom 18 months ago needs tyo be redone as the mould has stained and flaked the paint away even though I've treated it now.

    And best of all, most of my clothes in a wardrobe I don't open often are ruined, including my £500 suit. :angry:

    I can't wait to move out of this **** hole.
  6. Is a move on the cards?

    No one will buy this place until that's sorted. May well go the whole hog I think and claim it on the insurance... I can get some laminate floors installed then n'all.
  8. I would!

    You pay enough ******* money out for insurance for naff all!

    My neighbour who lent me the dehumidifier and all the other kit said that mould is in fact more toxic then raw sewage, Rather worrying.
