Damp and condensation solutions

Managing condensation in the home

If you experience condensation dampness in your home, watch our video explaining how you can reduce it.

Some dampness in the home is caused by condensation, which occurs when moist air comes into contact with colder surfaces, such as a window or wall. This creates a build of tiny drops of water which can result in a growth of black mould.

To avoid condensation in the home, it is important to reduce the amount of moisture produced and make sure there is sufficient ventilation. Insulating and draught-proofing your home will also help to reduce condensation as it will help to evenly heat your home and prevent cold spots on walls or ceilings.
