Interior mould is not only a health hazard, but can also ruin soft furnishings, leather items and wood. To reduce the risk of returning to a mouldy holiday home, try the following solutions:

  1. Leave interior doors open in order to let air circulate between rooms
  2. Buy cheap bed sheets and put them over furniture. This will protect your furniture and soft furnishings from mould
  3. Pull your furniture away from walls and damp windows to let air circulate
  4. Use vacuum bags to store bedding, cushions, etc.
  5. Leave cupboard doors open
  6. Turn the water supply off and drain the hot and cold water system. Open taps to drain off water from pipes and drain the toilet cistern by flushing it.
  7. Putting bleach in the toilet bowl or covering the bowl with cling film slows down evaporation and keeps the bowl clean.
  8. Unplug all unused equipment to avoid the risk of fire and power surges
  9. Empty and clean the fridge / freezer. Turn it off and leave the doors open.
  10. Place a dehumidifier (such as the Meaco DD8L Junior, Meaco DD8L Standard, Meaco DD8L Zambezi, Meaco 12L Low Energy or the Meaco 20L Low Energy) in a central area close to a drainage point (such as the kitchen sink or bathroom)
