Hello there,

so living on the coast has it's downsides and one is the massive amounts of moisture that collects within our home.

 

We are in a rental with terrible insulation. Our bedroom is beginning to smell musty confused.gif.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions for what I can do?

 

We have the obvious mold along windows and along our back door (in our bedroom). It's driving me nuts!

Good ventilation is key - don't close off rooms, open windows when it is warm enough, keep the rooms heated when it is not. Run a dehumidifier. Use a non-toxic product like Concrobium to help kill and encapsulate mold spores.....
