In winter especially the damp air can cause mould on walls and furniture in all houses. It is important therefore for students to take precautions to ensure that their accommodation is kept warm and well-aired as mould can cause respiratory problems. In Ireland a major cause of damp is caused by condensation. What is Condensation there is always some moisture in the air even if you cannot see it. If the air gets colder it cannot hold all of the moisture and tiny drops of water appear this is condensation. Condensation occurs mainly during cold weather whether it is raining or not. It appears in places where there is little movement of air. Look for it on walls in corners on or near windows and in or behind wardrobes and cupboards. How to avoid Condensation to reduce the amount of moisture when cooking cover saucepans and pots and do not leave kettles boiling. When washing clothes put wet clothes on a clothes airer in the bathroom ensure that the door is closed and also ensure that the window is open or the fan is on. How to Ventilate your apartment Ventilation is needed to get rid of moisture. You need much more ventilation in the kitchen or bathroom when cooking washing up bathing and drying clothes. this means opening the windows wider. always open windows when cooking and after showering. however remember to close the windows when leaving your apartment. Close the kitchen and bathroom doors when these rooms are in use even if your kitchen or bathroom has an extractor fan. this will help to stop the moisture reaching other rooms especially bedrooms which are often colder and more likely to get condensation. allow space for the air to circulate in and around your furniture. also open doors from time to time to ventilate cupboards and wardrobes. if you notice Mould If you notice mould you should deal with it immediately. Wipe down walls and window frames with a fungicidal wash e.g. Dettol mould and mildew remover spray or Dettox mould and mildew remover. Clothes with mildew should be dry-cleaned. In addition please log the issue via the student portal so that we can if required assist you in dealing with it. Open your bedroom window for a short period at least once each day. 14 aPPenDix 1 aPartMent inVentory & MisCellaneoUs CHarges Item CUTLERY Table knife Table fork Soup spoon Dessert spoon Teaspoon Bread knife Carving knife Vegetable knife Tin opener Bottle opener Ladle Potato peeler Cutlery divider Scissors CROCKERY Large plate Small plate Mugs Bowl Glass Egg cup Sugar bowl Milk jug Condiment set EQUIPMENT Oven Hob Fridge Microwave Grill pan (including handle) TV stand TV & remote Replacement remote Fire extinguisher (new) Fire extinguisher (refill) Fire blanket Fire panel (under stairs) Qty Replacement cost (per item) 0.50 0.30 0.30 0.30 0.15 3.00 4.00 3.00 2.50 2.50 2.50 1.50 3.00 3.00 4.50 3.00 3.00 2.50 0.75 1.00 2.50 5.00 2.00 300.00 150.00 230.00 60.00 25.00 25.00 180.00 15.00 60.00 35.00 25.00 400.00 Item Fire bell (hallway) Smoke head (on ceiling in hall) Freezer (ensuite apartments only) Dishwasher (ensuite apartments only) Kettle Toaster FURNITURE Coffee table Arm chair Couch Replacement cushion Dining table Dining table chair COOKING UTENSILS Small saucepan & lid Medium saucepan & lid Large saucepan & lid Extra large saucepan Frying pan Teapot Roasting tray Casserole dish & lid Chopping board Bread bin Tray Measure jug Water jug Colander Wooden spoon Pie dish Whisk Grater Mixing bowl Qty 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 2 1 1 4 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Replacement cost (per item) 95.00 100.00 400.00 350.00 25.00 25.00 75.00 150.00 200.00 50.00 150.00 40.00 10.00 15.00 20.00 25.00 12.00 10.00 5.00 15.00 6.00 15.00 6.00 5.00 5.00 5.00 2.00 5.00 1.50 4.00 2.50 6 6 6 6 6 1 1 1 1 1 3 1 1 1 6 6 6 6 6 6 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 15 Corrib Village Student handbook 2016 Item HOUSEHOLD Table mat Washing brush Dish drainer Basin UTILITY Dustpan & brush Sweeping brush Mop Bucket Bin with lid Iron Ironing board Toilet brush & holder Vacuum cleaner Replacement vacuum head Replacement vacuum hose Clothes horse Bedroom bin BEDROOM (PER ROOM) Pillow Mattress protector (single) Mattress protector (double) Duvet (single) Duvet (double) Desk chair Desk lamp MISCELLANEOUS CHARGES Cleaning full apartment Kitchen cleaning Cooker oven cleaning Bathroom cleaning Bedroom cleaning Removal of rubbish (per bag) Supply and fit bedroom mirror Supply and fit bathroom mirror Replacement bedroom blind Replacement living room blind Blind repairs Cushion cover replacement Paintwork damage per area wall Replacement shower curtain & rail Replacement picture frame White goods (damage replace missing parts) All prices are subject to change Qty Replacement cost (per item) 2.00 1.00 4.00 2.50 3.00 5.00 6.00 8.00 15.00 15.00 20.00 5.00 120.00 15.00 15.00 14.00 4.00 4.50 10.00 12.00 15.00 20.00 35.00 12.00 200.00 150.00 50.00 40.00 50.00 15.00 65.00 65.00 150.00 200.00 Repair cost 50.00 50.00 25.00 30.00 Repair cost 4 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 16 aPPenDix 2 HoUse rUles under the provision of the Student Licence agreement. 1.
