Condensation and Mould
With the long winter nights and temperatures dropping outside, you may notice condensation on your windows and across cold surfaces
in your home. Moisture is caused by everyday living, from cooking to having a shower. Although moisture may seem harmless, if left, it could lead to black spot mould and health problems. Take a look
at our top tips below, to help keep you and your home healthy.
OUR POLICY REGARDING SMOKING
Due to Health and Safety legislation, our staff have the right to cancel an appointment if their working conditions are deemed detrimental to their health. This includes a smoky atmosphere. To reduce the likelihood of this happening, you should not smoke within the property for the duration of their attendance and for at least one hour before the scheduled appointment slot.
Our Repairs Helpdesk is responsible for the day to day maintenance of all council properties across the Borough of Poole.
You can report a repair at anytime via our secure online form 'Report a Repair'. You can also report a repair during office hours to the Repairs Helpdesk or, if you live in a sheltered scheme, you can report it to your Sheltered Housing Officer.
