Twickenham is a town in south west London on the River Thames in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, located 10 miles (16 km) southwest of the centre of London. Twickenham has expanded rapidly during the suburban growth of London from 1881 until 1961, when its population grew and its farms and common were converted to other use.
Whether you own a property in Twickenham or anywhere else in the UK, if it is old or new, small or large, they all have one thing in common, they can all have condensation. Condensation is the most common damp problem a property can be affected by. It is far more likely to occur in the cold, winter months, when we close ourselves in and turn the heating up. If when you wake up in the morning your widows are misted over and running with water, you have condensation.
If you have a bust life you may have to rush to work in the morning, so, a quick hot shower, boil the kettle for a cup of tea of coffee, rush out the door and trap all that moisture you have produced, in your property until you come home hours later. When you get home and in from the cold, the last thing you think about is ‘Oh I must let that high humidity out’ in fact you probably do the opposite, boil the kettle for a cup of tea or coffee, cook dinner and maybe another shower before you go to bed. If you also decide to dry the weekend laundry on your radiators you end up adding litres and litres of moisture into the atmosphere of your home that can’t escape. Condensation is not only damaging for your property but more importantly it is harmful to your health. There has been much recent publicity about the under estimated harm that Black Spot Mould Fungus (Aspergillus app) can cause to your health, especially if you already suffer from respiratory problems. This very damaging fungus is a direct result of condensation and can also damage your property and personal belongings.
