A sick home may in short make its occupants and household furniture sick over time.
Cold and humid homes give the ideal living conditions to contaminants like fungi, (black) mould and dust mites. All of these have been linked to the development of asthma, respiratory diseases, cardiac problems and allergic reactions.
Making sure your home is healthy should not just be a priority for rental homes. It should be a priority for all homes as cold and humid conditions – aside from taking a toll on human health – also cause extra and untimely expenditures for replacements of furniture and renovations.
