Condensation is the biggest cause of all damp and mould problems reported to us. It’s caused when warm air hits a cold surface like a window or a wall. Mould can occur if a surface is left wet. You’ll see a build-up in condensation when you cook, shower or dry clothes indoors.
The best thing to do is make sure air can circulate around your home, so open windows or use an extractor fan. If there’s condensation around your windows you can wipe this off too.
If you minimise the moisture you'll reduce condensation, so:
Running water in baths or showers causes clouds of moisture, so:
Drying a pile of washing can release as much as 10 pints of moisture into the air, so:
We will not compensate for damage caused by condensation.
