Condensation

What Is Condensation?

Condensation is the most common form of unwanted dampness in buildings. It is caused by moisture in the air condensing as it comes into contact with cool surfaces. Condensation can lead to fungal decay in timbers, mould on walls, stained curtains and decayed window frames. Untreated mould can lead to respiratory problems.

Condensation is generally a winter problem, as the outside temperature is low, causing walls and windows to be colder.
