How to stop your Shed from getting mouldy?

If you’re finding mould in your Shed, then it’s time to do something about it!

No need to worry though as there’s plenty you can do – as I explain this short clip…


The easiest way to stop your shed from getting or growing mould in it fairly straightforward – don’t put anything damp in it.

It’s quite probable that you’re going to have gardening equipment, golf clubs or bikes in it, that sort of stuff. These things may have been outside and got wet in the process, or been cleaned and not dried properly and then put back into the shed.

Then the shed’s been locked up and left. All the dampness from those things will then have started to build up and grow mould.

The temperatures in the shed can get quite high, especially on hot days, which creates a breeding ground for mould.

So, what you need to do is just make sure that anything you’re putting into the shed is dry before you put it in.

On hot days swing the door back and let the air circulate.

Another thing that you can do is add these little moisture capsules that you can get from supermarkets. That will draw the moisture out of the air also.

So, to stop your shed from getting mouldy, it’s that simple – don’t put anything damp in it. Okay 😉
