Condensation in the Home

Wet is in the air all of that time period, if air gets colder it will never have the capacity to take all the moisture, tiny drops of water then form, even if you cannot see it, that is condensation.

Damp due to condensation isn't going to leave a tidemark.

What is condensation
A Standard example of this really is o-n smooth, non porous surfaces for example mirrors and win-dows but then the wetness may also be consumed by the interior walls causing the development of mould if the problem is severe.

Families can create an astonishing number of moisture from general day to day living, and as improvements are made on both insulation and and heats this can result in a much more stuck moisture, it needs to go someplace so the easiest root is taken by it.

How To Prevent Condensation

Condensation may be the simplest and cheapest type of damp to combat. Here are a few of the things you can do to lessen it:

Keep your home warmed

It is recommended to maintain your heat on a continuous heat of around 17 degrees Celsius

Insulate the walls

warm walls are less likely to want to condense the water

Increase ventilation

Also turn on your own extractor fan in toilets / kitchens o-r have them fitted.
Shut toilet doors if you shower to help control the moisture.
Dry clothes outside o-r port dryers straight to the outside world (refrain from drying clothes on radiators as this may cause a tremendous amount of moisture in the air -- and its got to go somewhere!)
If air bricks and drip vents can be found, check they will not be blocked.


It is best to leave a gap of around 50mm between furniture and the wall, make an effort perhaps not to position wardrobes and drawers right up against the wall as this may reduce air flow and cause condensation ending in mould behind items.


Don't leave kettles boiling and cover pans when cooking
keep a little window ajar whilst in the house and remember to close it when you leave the house, particularly if the window is ground floor
When possible spot beds and wardrobes again internal walls

Avoid setting a lot of clothes in a single wardrobe because this will definitely limit air flow
Prevent draught proofing a place which is affected by condensation
