Hello Plymouth – In recent weeks, I have been contacted by families in Plymouth who are understandably concerned about the issue of damp and mould in their homes.
Too many families in Plymouth are living in damp, mouldy conditions and a cold winter could lead to a spike in mould problems as damp is more likely in homes that are excessively cold and expensive to heat.
With energy bills going through the roof, this is becoming a growing problem. A recent study suggested almost one in four adults in the UK would not switch on the heating at all this winter.
Damp and mould can adversely affect your health and lead to respiratory infections and illnesses. NHS England spends £1.3 billion a year on treating preventable illnesses caused by cold and damp homes.
If you are having an issue with mould and damp in your home and are living in Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport, I am here to help where I can. Please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01752 717255 and my brilliant casework team will get in touch.
Please note: I can only help constituents I represent in Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport. If you live outside the constituency, please contact your local MP.
