Do you have concerns about condensation in your home?

Please get in touch below or read our tips to prevent condensation.



Keeping you safe in your home

There is always moisture in the air, even if you can’t see it. Condensation occurs when warm moist air meets a cold surface. So when the air gets colder, it cannot hold the moisture which then condenses on cold surfaces such as windows, doors and even walls and could turn into black mould. 

Tips to prevent condensation:

  • Maintain the temperature in your home to the recommended level
  • When filling a bath, run the cold water first, it will reduce steam by 90%.
  • Avoid drying clothes on radiators and using unvented tumble dryers
  • Ventilate your home all year round by opening windows and vents
  • Make sure any extractor fans in your home are being used 
  • Cook with pan lids on to prevent steam escaping
  • Try crystal moisture traps, which can be bought cheaply 
  • Open any vents in your windows and rooms to encourage airflow. Or keep your windows open for a brief period each day if you don’t have vents.
  • Regularly wipe all cold and moistness from windows with some kitchen towel and make sure they are dry.
  • Reduce the risk of mildew on clothes by allowing air to circulate. Never over fill wardrobes and cupboards as it restricts air circulation.
