    Hi guys

    My loft is lined with foil backed plasterboard. Last winter in the cold weather, I had condensation forming and then fluffy mould spours.

    I have since had tile vents fitted but I noticed that the mould is still there.

    I hasn't got worse but it hasn't disappeared. Will it ever disappear and will it start breeding again this year?

    Thanks for any thoughts.

    Fluff

    Mould won't disappear on its own even if the reason it formed in the first place is removed, clean it off with a weak bleach solution.
