Ventilation & Condensation
Condensation can appear in a property for a number of reasons at any time of year, but it is commonly found during the colder winter months when the difference in temperature between indoors and outdoors is at its greatest. It is simply a type of damp caused by a build up of moisture within a home, which usually then condenses on window glass leaving standing water on the interior surface.
The root cause of condensation in a property is almost always down to poor ventilation and irregular use of central heating. Properties naturally create moisture within them as people cook, clean and dry clothes. Unchecked, this moisture steadily builds until more noticeable and unpleasant symptoms such as damp windows or mould begin to show.
The best way to avoid condensation is to try to invite fresh air into your home whilst removing as much moisture from it as possible. This could be by keeping windows open more, using the extractor fan when cooking, covering pots and pans with lids or keeping the heating on consistently at a low level. Individually, these changes may not have an effect but used together, they can help to reduce the likelihood of condensation occurring.
