From breathing to boiling the kettle, condensation is simply the moisture caused by everyday living. Moisture is abundant in the warm atmosphere of your property, but when the property cools down this moisture will condense and settle on cool surfaces.
Condensation happens in almost every property around world, but it is also an extremely underestimated cause of damage to fixtures and fittings, and is almost certainly the most common form of dampness found in buildings. Thankfully, there are various condensation treatments that can deal with the problem no matter how severe it gets.
Ironically, condensation problems are largely the result of improved standards of living. Insulation, double glazing and draught proofing of properties, that all give the benefit of better heat retention, have resulted in a number of properties suffering from a lack of air ventilation and trapped moisture. Without regular ventilation, condensation often results in unhealthy living conditions with black mould growth, peeling decorations, damage to fabrics and unpleasant musty damp smells occurring within a property. At its most severe condensation can even result in permanent damage to plaster and timber.
