Treena Wells criticises housing charity East Thames over poor conditions

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: Treena Wells points out mould in her bathroom. Treena Wells points out mould in her bathroom.

A mother claims a housing charity has put her family’s health at risk after placing them in a home infested with mould.

Treena Wells says there are mushrooms growing in the bathroom of the house in Grange Park Road, Leyton, which is owned by East Thames.

The 39-year-old said she and her five-year-old daughter, Charlie, who both suffer from asthma, have had to endure widespread damp, mildew and mould since moving into the property in 2010.

East Thames, a charity whose mission statement is “to make a positive and lasting contribution”, says investigations into the cause of the problems have been inconclusive.

“I’m just fed up with it,” said Mrs Wells, whose husband also lives in the property.

“My daughter is always ill, I worry about her, her schooling has gone downhill and there’s been two letters home because she’s missing so much time at school.

“My blue carpet went black and damp has come through my bedroom and bathroom.

“A neighbour who’s lived upstairs for 38 years said they’ve moved two people out of the same property for the same reasons and one later died from lung problems.”

Mrs Wells contracted pneumonia while living at a previous property and fears the condition could return.

An East Thames spokeswoman said a damp specialist and a council environmental health officer would visit her the property this week.

“We can then put in place a programme of works to deal with the problem,” she added.

“We would like to apologise to Ms Wells for the distress caused by the mould and assure her that once we have the results we will act upon them as quickly as possible.”

The photo showing the condition of the front door has absolutely nothing to do with condensation, more like shoddy workmanship! 'Villagecranbury' I would suggest you go to 'Specsavers'!

You do not get 'rising damp' above 3 feet. It is condensation , drying clothes indoors, where do you think the water goes?

No need for insults, keep it adult. Basement yes, not above 3 feet. Membrane the cause yes. You do not get rising damp above your head, that is lateral penetration or condensation.

It is condensation and I am not guessing, I know, caused by drying clothes indoors and lack of ventilation. Water has to go somewhere and condenses on the walls causing the black mould to thrive and 'mushrooms' to grow. There well also be rising damp but if so that is not causing the mould above a yard.

Apart from when you said Membrane the cause. Which would be an external source. So lateral damp not condensation which can easily go above 3 feet on a basement wall as it may have descended to that point from a higher source.

So you don't know that it is condensation as you don't know the source. So not a fact.

Shame you didn't stay on in your education, then you might have learnt scientific method. Then you would have learnt how where there are multiple possible causes you would need evidence to prove something as a fact.

Simply stamping your feet and claiming your answer is correct without evidence is something for politicians and trolls
You are the only 'foot stamper' on this site.
Try and keep it "adult"....

Unless you have actually been round to this lady's home you cannot know for certain the cause. Please spare us all your nonsense and unprovable facts.
I have provided all the possibilities and the facts. You even question reputable firms advice regarding height of Rising damp and condensation. I tried to keep it adult but you bought up the roof stomping. I can highly recommend The Specials Moon Stomp for the weekend.

I haven't questioned any reputable firms. You're the only person on here contradicting the official reports received by this unfortunate lady.

E.g. Your quote "It is condensation , drying clothes indoors, where do you think the water goes?"

That is your statement as fact.

An accurate statement should have been "I think it is condensation, as it often is, but not having been there I cannot say for certain"

I can recommend this for your weekend http://www.bbc.co.uk

If you read the comments above you'll see that I was on your side. The only person on here questioning your credibility, education etc. is VillageCranberry better known as Cornbeefur. Google that and you'll see his past form.

Best of luck with getting things sorted out.

You may have rising damp below 3 feet but you definitely have condensation and lack of ventilation causing the mould.

That is what I was pointing out to you all along having looked at the pictures. Thank you for clarifying the situation about the condensation and good luck with your rising damp problem in the basement ( no pictures shown). I hope the sort it as soon as practicable.
