As condensation of air moisture with rapid mould growth is prone to happen on the ceiling, walls and/or floor of a room, wherein airconditioner was OFF without opened window, with a short time due to significant humidity and temperature difference with adjacent airconditioned rooms in hot and humid weather.


To prevent the water condensation and mould problem from affecting your neighbor or yourself, your attention is drawn to the following tips :


1. To adjust your air-conditioner at a comfortable room temperature. (i.e. around 23 Degree Celsius)


2. To properly adjust air diffuser of your airconditioner so that the cool air will not be directly discharged towards the ceiling or the floor.


3. To maintain sufficient ventilation by opening the windows when you leave the room for a certain period of time.


4. To regularly clean your bedding set for the sake of environmental hygiene against the growth of mould, fungi and dust mite.
