What is Condensation?
It is arguably the most common type of dampness in properties and yet is one of the most difficult to diagnose. One in five properties in the UK have a condensation issue which is a result of the high moisture content in the air. High moisture content is caused by every day activities that involve a change in temperature in the property such as boiling the kettle, cooking or having a hot bath or shower. A lot of people make the mistake of underestimating condensation which can lead to severely damaged interiors, including decoration and furniture. Mould can also develop from condensation and in these circumstances you have terribly unhealthy living conditions.
What Causes Condensation?
Funnily enough, this common condition is usually a result of improvements being made to a property. For example, draft proofing and double glazing are great treatments to be implemented to your home to improve heating and save on energy bills. However they can reduce ventilation in a property. When air that is filled with moisture is trapped in a building and lies on cold surfaces it appears at water on walls or windows, also known as condensation.
What Are the Best Condensation Solutions Available?
In the first instance you should have a professional come out to survey your property. Richardson and Starling are the ideal choice for your condensation solutions as they have a partnership with leading ventilation experts Envirovent.
