Condensation

Condensation problems are a major cause of harmful mould in most households and businesses. If you have condensation problems in your home or business, our surveyor will correctly diagnose the problem and offer the correct solution.

The day to day use of the property and the water vapour it produces shouldn’t necessarily be the problem, a balance between ventilation, insulation and heating needs to be obtained. Condensation leading to the growth of harmful mould should not just be covered up but eradicated by finding a solution through a qualified experienced surveyor.

What is condensation?

Excess water vapour in the air leads to condensation forming on different parts of your property at different temperatures, once a surface is damp mould spores will start to grow

Condensation problems can be a major cause of harmful mould in households and business leading to varying degrees of health issues.

Interstitial condensation happens when water vapour in the air causes condensation to form within the fabric of the building.

These types of damp can be easily mistaken for penetrating and rising damp and need to be diagnosed properly.
