Positive Input Ventilation System Installation PIV | Erith | London | DA1

Positive Input Ventilation System PIV | Erith | London | DA1

Leigh Electrical Contractors were called by a customer in Eirth which was experiencing the worse damp problem we’ve seen for a long time! The house was so bad that the ceilings had collapsed upstairs and the walls downstairs had been knocked back to the bricks and a damp company were re boarding them.

The mould was in every room but it was worse in the bathroom downstairs at the back of the property and the kitchen. The property was Victorian terrace which had PVC windows fitted and insulation put in the loft. Unfortunately although these measures saves on energy bills it also cuts down the air flow through the house.

The lack of air flow is the main cause of condensation and mould as the humidity in the air has no where to escape to so was settling on the walls and the windows. This had created a lot of condensation all over the property leading to damp, mould and overall poor indoor air quality.

This property is like many in the Britain with 1 in 5 homes suffering from the effects of condensation and mould. That’s why Leigh Electrical Contractors offer free home surveys, which can guide home owners through different ventilation systems giving you a relatively simple yet permanent solution for getting rid of condensation and mould.

The average family home creates 16 pints of moisture a day, from general every day activities in the home like showering, drying clothes and breathing! This all adds to the humidity of the air which causes condensation which then turns to mould.

Mould will keep coming back in your property unless you deal with the root cause of the condensation and tackle the humidity in the air. If nothing is done about the mould it can not just affect the property but also your health and immune system, causing headaches, breathing difficulties, nausea, fatigue and even trigger respiratory problems and asthma.

After a full and in depth survey the customer was advised that the best and and most cost effective, way of preventing mould and condensation was to install a PIV unit in the loft. The best PIV unit by far is the Envirovent system. The PIV will circulate the air round the house.

The family were going to convert the loft space into a bedroom so wanted to make sure that a PIV could be fitted in the space without affecting the future building work. Leigh Electrical Contractors advised the family that false ceiling could be cut out and the PIV could be located in the eves when the building works started.

Being a local family run company we were able to book the PIV install in for the same week as the survey. The customer was happy to tell us on our follow up visit that the Envirovent system had got rid of all the condensation and once the black mould was wiped off it had not returned.
