Hi Littlepea,

I'm battling damp/mould/mildew since the beginning in this development , I have thrown out entire rooms right down to skirting to try solve it.
The problem is the trickle vents and that normal levels of moisture cannot escape the apartment .
The only help I have found so far is a dehumidifier - they are around €200 and help a good bit.
I had a company out a few years ago who read the air humidity for me it was standing at 77% which is right around optimal humidity for bacteria and mould growth , so yes your right its very bad for health , I have the antibiotics,steroids and inhalers to prove it !
