State of the Home Survey - 08/09/2014
In July 2014 HRV compiled results from a nation wide State of the Home Survey.
HRV surveyed over 20,000 New Zealanders and the results were astonishing:
- Condensation is prevalent in 31% of homes.
- 27% had curtains, carpets and other property damaged due to mould and dampness.
- More than half of New Zealanders (52%) say they experience some degree of nasal, throat, skin, or eye irritation in winter, beyond cold or flu symptoms, which may be attributed to aggravated dust mite allergy symptoms.
- Nearly one in five homes have a ventilation system.
