Black Mould removed from family home by Habitat's Home Repair Programme.

Lakusa tells of her experience having the black mould removed from her home with the help of Habitat's Home Repair programme.


The top step is great now. It used to be so dangerous that I wouldn’t use the stairs.
I can actually use them now there is a handrail.
I’m delighted with the result.
I’ll be telling everyone at my local community centre.
