What is condensation?
Condensation is a very common type of damp problem caused by a build-up of moisture within your property. This usually becomes apparent as fogging and droplets on the interior surface of your window panes, as warm humid air comes into contact with the cooler glass.
The root cause of condensation within a property is almost always poor ventilation. Moisture is unavoidably generated through everyday tasks such as cooking, washing and drying clothes, and even as we breathe. When left unchecked, the air moisture level steadily builds up until more noticeable and unpleasant symptoms such as mould growth, damage to paint, wood rot and unpleasant odours start to appear.
If condensation and poor ventilation has resulted in signs of damp in your property, don’t hesitate to contact our team today for assistance on 01202 737739.

How can I prevent condensation?
The best way to avoid condensation is to get fresh air circulating throughout your home whilst ensuring that trapped moisture is able to escape the property. This can be achieved in a number of ways:
- Keeping windows open to assist with ventilation and allow hot humid air to escape
- Using an extractor fan in the kitchen and bathroom when cooking and bathing
- Covering pots and pans with lids whilst cooking
- Keeping the heating on consistently at a low level
- Investing in a dehumidifier for underground spaces with no windows
Individually, these changes may not have an effect but when used together, they can help to reduce the likelihood of condensation occurring. However, in many cases there is an underlying ventilation issue within the property that will need to be addressed by a damp specialist.
For example, condensation within underfloor cavities can lead to dry rot and wet rot, the effects of which can often go unnoticed until severe damage is caused.
