Whatever type of property you have in the beautiful city of Oxford, they are all prone to condensation which is the most common damp problem that can affect your property. Condensation is far more likely to occur during the colder damp winter months when the temperature outside falls and the temperature inside rises. Lifestyle factors must take much of the blame: boiling the kettle, cooking dinner, showering and drying washing indoors all contribute to worsen the problem – it is not surprising to note that the average household produces a staggering 112 pints of moisture a week! You may notice that windows are misted in the morning and running with water, this is the first sign that condensation is taking hold and needs action to control it.

Tips to reduce condensation:
• Ventilation – Keep a steady flow of air coming in through the windows.
