What is Condensation?
We have years of experience dealing with condensation and eliminating it from the source in properties
When warm, moist air comes in contact with a surface that is cooler than it is, ie a window pane or uninsulated external wall, the warm are, cools down and is unable to continue to hold the moisture as it did. This moisture laden air settles on a cold surface and mould can soon form.
Condensation is by far the most common cause of dampness in buildings, probably accounting for the majority of damp problems reported. It affects both old and new buildings and it appears to be a significant problem where the building has been modernised due to the fact that effective double glazing and insulation prevents the extent that the property can naturally ‘breathe’.

Why Condensation is a Problem
If moisture caused by condensation is left on surfaces, it can prompt mould to form.Windows do not cause condensation, but they can be a perfect breeding ground for it because they are the coldest indoor surfaces.
Indoor air is humid, mainly through everyday living, and during colder months the air is much warmer than that outside. It contracts as it cools, and moisture condenses on window glass.Condensation is often first visible on your windows but is likely occurring in other areas and can lead to the deterioration of plaster, wallpaper, paint and woodwork.
