Condensation can be a big problem for many properties as warm air created in the property from everyday activities, such as cooking and showering, meets cooler surfaces such as a window or wall. It is therefore extremely common during cool winter months.
Unless properly ventilated, this build-up of moisture in your property can lead to mould growth.
- Make sure that ventilation in your property is adequate. In kitchens and bathrooms, a major hub for condensation and mould, ensure that extractor fans are working correctly. It is a good idea to check these as part of a mid-term property inspection.
- Try turning the cold tap of the bath on first, this way when the hot water hits it will not produce as much steam. Did you know having a bath produces two pints of moisture?
- Wipe away condensation as soon as you spot it so that it doesn’t linger leading to mould growth.
