Condensation Control

We have all seen condensation at some time or another. It can affect a property of any size or age and is caused by several factors; the main one these being the lifestyle of the occupants. Signs you have condensation are streaming windows, water droplets on window sills, wet walls and worst of all, black mould. High humidity (condensation) is usually caused by simply not keeping the property at a constantly warm temperature and not immediately opening windows to extract steam after cooking, taking a bath or using the shower.

Another issue contributing to condensation is poor insulation, either in the loft or in the cavities of walls. This can create cold internal wall or ceiling surfaces (cold spots), which become wet as the occupants increase the level of warm humid air and the two meet. During winter months, high humidity affects at least one in five of all British homes and 75% of damp problems are attributed to condensation. If not effectively controlled it can cause considerable damage to property, clothing and personal items, as well as being a serious risk to the health of the occupants.

We install Passive Vapour Vents, extractors and Condensation Control Units. We also insulate cold internal surfaces and clean mould from your walls or ceilings.  We are proud to be a long term member of the PCA (Property Care Association), a certified ISO9001:2015 quality management company, a 5-star Which Trusted Trader and a company you can trust.

What Is It

Condensation occurs when warm moist air comes into contact with a cooler surface, such as a single-glazed window or a cold wall.

Do You Have It

Unlike other forms of damp, Condensation is seasonal. However, it shouldn’t be underestimated because the damage it can cause is considerable.

How we control it

Calculations will be made to determine the ‘dew point’ (the level at which humidity turns to water) and what control methods are required to raise it.
