Hi, This is my first post. My asthma has recently flared up and so has my alergic rhinitus. Not quite sure which is worse to tell the truth. My problem is that I live on a boat. To put you in the picture its got minimal carpeting and is large and open plan (about 3000 sq ft in total). The environment is not as damp as you might think and has central heating, insulation and a real fire. However water has recently got into the bottom of the boat which is due to a burst pipe. The bilge pumped out most but there is still a lot of water across the entire length which you just cant get to - well under the floor boards. The air flow in the main living quarters is minimal - below deck. This I think has led to a rise in the mould spores in the air and I am assuming this is why my asthma has got bad. I cant move out as its just too expensive to move. I cant get rid of the water without putting the boat in dry dock - 8k!
So theres my problem - I'm stuck with mould spores in the air which I have to treat in some way. I keep a dehumidifier running and its done some good but just not enough. In your opinion should I:
A) Buy more dehumidifiers
B) Buy some air cleaners with mould filters
C) Buy fans to get a better air flow
D) A combination of the above
E) None of the above
I dont mind spending a few quid as long as it improves the situation. Opinions gratefully received.
