Keep Your Home Free From Condensation and Mould


You have a duty to minimise levels of condensation within the property, ensuring it is sufficiently heated and ventilated. Condensation on windows or walls must be removed at frequent intervals to prevent damage.

Many people mistake the results of condensation for types of dampness associated with building defects. Tackling the problem promptly and effectively can help prevent further issues developing.

Condensation occurs when warm moist air comes into contact with a cold surface. This is often why your windows, ceramic tiles, pipework and sometimes even walls will appear to run with water.
