Damp and Mould

Damp and Mould management is an important issue for the health and well-being of residents. Social Housing providers are well aware of their responsibility to ensure that their properties are kept free from damp and mould and to address any issues that arise promptly.

Whilst initial findings from the Regulator of Social Housing’s review in February this year reported some strong responses in relation to overall strategy and processes to manage damp and mould, they also stated that most providers could strengthen their approach in some areas, and that a proactive approach should be undertaken, rather than a reactive approach (which of course may be due to the use of responsive repairs systems to manage the large increase in related incoming tenant calls due to recent publicity). In addition, they suggested an improvement in assurance, oversight and understanding of the condition of tenants’ homes.

However, a recent survey* has stated that 42% of housing providers still do not know which of their properties have damp and mould problems, nor their severity.

In addition to tenant well-being, intense scrutiny from social media, newspapers, TV, politicians, consumer regulation, and the launch of the Tenant Satisfaction Measures, damp and mould management has become an important issue; but it is not the only important compliance area, merely the one in focus.

Many compliance areas can seriously impact tenant well-being and safety, and they all require consistent attention, which demands more than adequate management processes and quick access to accurate information.

Compliance Management of social housing stock requires a proactive and multi-faceted approach. As an experienced solutions provider in this sector, we recognize the importance of a comprehensive compliance management system with data-supported monitoring media, to overcome challenges such as:
