Condensation and Mould Control
Most of have seen condensation or mould at some time or another because it can affect a property of any size or age and is caused by several factors, the main one being, the lifestyle of the occupants. Signs you have condensation are streaming windows, water droplets on window sills, walls damp to the touch and worst of all, black mould fungus ruining your decorations and furniture. High humidity (Condensation) is usually caused by something simple like not keeping the property at a constantly warm/tepid 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, which could either be in the loft or in the cavities of the external walls. Insufficient insulation can create ‘cold spots’ on internal walls or ceiling surfaces, which become wet as the occupants increase the level of warm humid air and the two meet. During the winter months, high humidity affects at least one in five of all British homes and 75% of all damp problems we attend, are attributed to condensation. If not controlled it can cause considerable damage to your property, clothing and personal items, as well as being a serious risk to the health of the occupants.
We install Passive Vapour Vents, thermostatically controlled Extractors, Heat Recovery Systems and thermostatically controlled Condensation Control Units. We also insulate cold internal surfaces using a vapour barrier Iso-Therm polyester membrane and clean damaging mould spores from your walls or ceilings. We are a long term member of the Property Care Association (PCA), a certified ISO 9001:2015 quality management company, rated as ‘Excellent’ by Trustpilot and a company you can trust.
