Subfloor Ventilation Sydney

Blog |September 14th, 2015

In the more moisture-prone areas of our fine country, the risk of mould growth is a very real concern. Thriving in damp and still environments, mould can permeate many mediums and thrives in under-ventilated and disused living areas.

Mould itself is more unsightly than dangerous; it is the method of transmission and reproduction in mould which makes it dangerous for humans. Mould propagates through the production of spores, airborne ejections, which serve as the root of the spread of mould. When airborne, these spores can easily be ingested and breathed in by nearby humans, and this can potentially be dangerous.

A number of respiratory ailments can be traced to mould spores, primarily targeting those with prevailing asthma or lung conditions. The spores are allergenic, and symptoms can present similarly to those who suffer from hay fever, albeit out of season.

As it is driven by moisture, the ventilation of your subfloor is absolutely vital to keep your subfloor mould-free. Very often, subfloors tend to feature stagnant air in an enclosed space, with little ventilation or sunlight to disrupt the growth of mould.

This is why, at Damp Controllers, we take our subfloor ventilation practice very seriously. A dry and well-ventilated subfloor will hold moisture in your home at bay, meaning it will remain dry and mould-free. At Damp Controllers, we believe that healthy homes feature healthy people, and subfloor ventilation in Sydney is a key element of maintaining a healthy space for you and your family.>

Sydney, located in eastern New South Wales, is one of the most famous seaside urban destinations in Australia. Sitting astride the Tasman Sea, indented by spectacular cliffs and beaches, Sydney plays host to the distinctive Sydney Opera House, and the Sydney Swans of the AFL.
