‘Game-changing’ method is ‘vital’ for treating mould growth and condensation

Mould can be found nearly anywhere in your home – from bathrooms to kitchens, to reception rooms and bedrooms.

The unpleasant dust-like fungi will thrive in the right conditions and can have a negative impact on people’s health and the overall appearance of your property.

Fortunately, fans of cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch have found a “cure” for mould growth which they claim is a “game-changer”.

Sophie Natasha Goodwin posted on the Facebook group, ‘Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips’: “How do I stop getting mould everywhere in bedroom and bathroom? Going all on bottoms of curtains too.”

The post was inundated with responses but the most popular suggestion was to use a dehumidifier which experts agree is “vital” when it comes to treating mould.

Sugar Ree said: “A dehumidifier would be good for this.”

Ann Atkinson replied: “I bought a dehumidifier from Screwfix and it has a setting on it for drying clothes. I am really pleased with it. My tumble dryer is very old so I didn’t think it would be very economical on electricity I read the reviews on Screwfix and all were very good.

“I was amazed the first time I used it how much water the tank had collected. I put mine on over night, put the wet washing on an airer in my spare bedroom, closed the door and shut the windows. And better still, no condensation at all on my windows the next morning.”

Dav Pauline Nic Aonasa recommended people invest in a 12L dehumidifier if they’re planning on buying one. He said: “The 12L seems to be the go-to for many people. Worth doing the research. Game changer and drying clothes too.”

Sharon Connoley commented: “A good dehumidifier cured my mould problem and no condensation on windows now. Worth the cost.”

Other suggestions from Mrs Hinch fans for removing the mould included opening windows every morning for a few hours and giving washing an extra spin before drying it indoors.

Jamie Woodhall, Technical and Innovation Manager at Rentokil Specialist Hygiene previously told Express.co.uk that “dehumidification” is “vital” when it comes to treating mould.

Nicholas Donnithorne, UK Technical Services Manager at Rentokil Property Care also previously told Express.co.uk that excess moisture like condensation is the most “common cause” of mould.

He said there’s always moisture in the air and when it comes into contact with a cold surface and cools down quickly, it can’t hold in all the moisture so droplets of water appear which is condensation.

The expert also claimed a family of four produces a massive 24 pints of water vapour each day, on average.

He said a lack of ventilation and drying clothes indoors are also common reasons why mould occurs.
