Keep the temperature in your property even.
Try not to let one room get much warmer or colder than the next.
In winter, have small heaters spread throughout your property rather than one large heater in the centre.
Never use un-flued gas heaters because they can release water vapour into the air.
Always use the exhaust when you're showering or cooking and open windows when possible. ( include this as a condition in your tenancy agreements).
Clean up mould as soon as you notice it.
Don't let it settle in and advise tenants to do the same ( include this as a condition in your tenancy agreements).
Wipe up condensation on walls or windows whenever you notice it (ask tenants to do the same)
Keep blinds and curtains open during the day (advise tenants to do the same)
Advise tenants to upload photos of any mould onto the RealRenta platform as soon as soon as they notice a problem and keep a record of any conversations you have over the phone.
