Mould can be a health hazard, so who is responsible in strata and how it is dealt with?
We are not mould experts. So find someone who is and also find actual, technical solutions to the problem. There will be plenty of ‘traditional’ methods for addressing mould, we think some may be old wives’ tales. Find the real story about it from people who know what they are talking about.
