I have a mould issue that I am trying to tackle. I live in a pre 1900's victorian terrace on the ground floor. Our kitchen has one problematic cupboard which is in the rear corner of the property.
A couple of weeks ago, I noticed small bugs on the far rear walls of the cupboard, I went to wipe them and there were hundreds of them, I can only assume they were mould mites. I cleaned out the cupboard with a mould cleaner (bleach) and have been keeping the cupboard open, however this is not a viable solution going forward. I removed the kick boards from my kitchen unit and noticed it was wet in the rear corner so I managed to dry it and put my dehumidifier there for a couple of days.
I haven't noticed any mould since, and its not wet under the cupboard, however I want to know how I can solve this problem permanently.
See the images in the link of the kitchen: https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipNWEju0hl9EbgNhjlirwoRP0RUpB99NAXHQJfoJDKREUOWNtMaVSKgig_id9HEg7w?key=UXF2dlV6aThjYkxwc3I3RjFqNnlfS1JfQXhRMkNn
What you can see in the images is the kitchen cupboard backs onto the solid brick wall, its pretty dry as far as I can tell, and the temp on the wall is around 12 - 13 degrees (measured with a laser temp gauge)
The relative humidity in the cupboard is getting up to 100% with the temp around 13 degrees.
What are my options here to drop the relative humidity? How can I increase the ventilation?
Would getting a tube heater in the cupboard help drop the humidity?
