Condensation is the most common form of dampness in British homes and is caused when moisture in a warm atmosphere condenses on cool surfaces. Condensation is generally the result of improved insulation and heat retention, but inadequate ventilation.
In the worst cases, condensation leads to black mould, peeling wallpaper, damage to fabrics and an unpleasant musty, damp smell within the property. It can also result in damage to plasterwork and, in extreme cases, to timbers. It also gives rise to unhealthy living conditions.
A sure sign of condensation issues is water build-up on windows. Whilst regular ventilation can provide some improvement, not many people want to open their windows when it’s cold outside.
