As winter approaches and the temperature outside plummets, condensation and damp become increasingly common problems in our homes. Condensation around windows is caused by excessive moisture in the house, and it often occurs in the winter when the warm air inside the house condenses on the cold windows.
Left unchecked, they can cause unsightly mould patches, and may even rot or damage surfaces or structures, which could prove very costly to repair. Worse still, condensation and damp can contribute to respiratory health problems.
Knowing which type of damp problem you have, and the solutions available to tackle it, can stamp it out for good. Fortunately, there are lots of things you can do to banish condensation and damp from your home this winter.
