Our house is so damp – I have had to throw out bags of flour that have gone mouldy with damp, and start using that cupboard for crockery only; I have had patches of mould appear I’m between the pleats of my skirts in my wardrobe; my books have all started to crinkle with damp; the walls are damp to the touch and my bedding is also damp to the touch when I come home in the evening. There are visible patches of damp on the walls in my room and in other parts of the house. My room is an attic conversion. It has no central heating, but the landlord supplied an electric fan heater, which I replaced with an electric oil heater when I moved in. We’ve been here two and a half years and have notified the landlord several times, but nothing gets done. What can I do? Now that winter is here, I am worried for my health sleeping in such a damp room. I’m self-employed too, so when I am ill, I don’t get paid. Does anyone have any advice/ I think part of the problem is that it is a very big job to fix such pervasive damp. Our landlords are generally lovely, but I don’t think they want to take the house apart with sitting tenants.
