I have a damp problem in my bungalow with black mould on some doors and bottom of walls. What type of trade do I need to advise me on this?

    It could be mould. Mould grows in atmospheres where there is a moisture content, with little ventilation. It likes areas behind cupboards and also lower walls. This is remedied with watered down bleach to kill (it's a living organism), then stain blocked, followed by decoration. It will return if ventilation is inadequate. Opening windows ajar helps. No wet clothes on radiators etc... It is also a health hazard and must be gotten rid of. A decorator worth his salt will deal with this. I hope this helps. John

    Hello Allan If you supply the paper and paste I can do it for £300. If the old paper needs stripping I can do it for £400. Many thanks John Wale
