Condensation and Mould Treatments

You often find this type in kitchens and bathrooms, but it can be found in any room that suffers from poor ventilation.

Condensation happens when warm moisture-laden air touches a cold surface. The water vapour always condenses onto the cold surface, causing a layer of moisture that soaks into the structure; this provides a favourable surface for mould and bacterial growth. You can usually find condensation on walls, ceilings, or floors. Furthermore, you can also find it on cold surfaces such as the underside of sinks and washbasins or cold-water pipes. The water then drips from these surfaces onto the floor, causing problems. Condensation is by far the most familiar form of damp and also the easiest to remedy. Just open windows to allow ventilation, keep a room ventilated, use an extractor fan and don't dry clothes indoors.
