Shepperton is equidistant between the towns of Chertsey and Sunbury on Thames and was originally an agricultural village. Shepperton’s relative closeness to London has continued to bring in new homes and residents as there are speedy rail links to the capital and drivers are close to the M3, M4 and M25. In addition it has the advantage of being situated only eight miles from Heathrow making it an ideal base for regular business travellers to choose for their home.
Whatever type of property you have, they can all be prone to condensation which is a common damp problem and is far more likely to be noticeable during the colder damp winter months. 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.
Tapco HomeDry has over 45 years of experience controlling condensation and providing solutions. Condensation not only spoils your home and décor but, more importantly, it has a detrimental affect on your health. Recent publicity has highlighted that harm to health due to Black Spot Mould Fungus (Aspergillus app) has been severely underestimated, particularly for those with a respiratory system that is already compromised.
Self- help tips to reduce condensation:
• Ventilation – Keep a steady flow of air coming in through the windows.
• Dry your clothes outside
• Install extractor fans
• Wipe away moisture
• Move furniture away from the walls
