    Good afternoon everyone,

    First time poster, so hoping this goes well, I've recently bought my first property, which has a lovely breeze block built 4m x 6m workshop at the back of the garden. Unfortunately after this damp winter I'm noticing mould is appearing (Hopefully my pictures will upload). There is white specs on the wooden ceiling beams, brown specs starting to appear on the breeze block cracks and on the cement floor, and white fluff appearing below the DPC just above floor level, also mould appearing on the back of my dart board.

    Google is boggling my mind, so was hoping if anyone had a similar problem and could give me any advice ?

    Thanks in advance :) 20190523_184745.jpg 20190523_180303.jpg 20190523_180248.jpg 20190523_180233.jpg 20190523_180219.jpg

    Spores are around all the time , ventilation prevents them settling and keeps wall and ceiling dry.
    Avoid sealing the room up and allow plenty of ventilation.
