Radiator Mould Removal & Prevention

Promain recently came across a report made by the BBC about radiators. The report stated that medical experts in Manchester have warned about the health dangers posed by a common mould which is found in most homes. Aspergillus spores can cause infections in people with existing lung problems.  Several scientists have warned that people could be unwittingly helping the mould to thrive. This is mainly by drying their clothes on their radiators.


There are various household moulds that many people are unaware exist within their property. They can take a serious toll on the health of the people residing inside of the property if they are not addressed effectively. Like the article states, drying clothes and other damp things on your radiators can cause mould spores to develop and affect people with existing lung problems. Did you know that up to 9 pints of excess water can be produced by drying your clothes inside? It is always advised to hang your washing outside to dry if it is possible.  If this is not an option, how about in the bathroom with the door closed and a window open slightly? This will help to get rid of the spores and aid in the prevention of further respiratory problems.

So, how else can you prevent mould?

It’s not as simple as saying “do this” and “do that”. This will probably not stop mould completely from appearing in your home. There are many things that you can try however.  We have done our best to give you some ideas below.
