Condensation is often considered a trivial problem that can be easily dealt with. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, condensation is probably the most difficult type of dampness to control due to the complex interacting factors that cause it.
In most cases, condensation is a winter time problem triggered by colder weather. The result is often water appearing on windows and mould growth. Musty smells become apparent and clothes become a feeding ground for mould.
Condensation is described as a ‘life-style problem’ as it is directly linked to the way we live in our properties. Older properties however were not designed for modern lifestyles and are often found to be inadequately ventilated and poorly insulated.
The first step in controlling a condensation problem is to have a survey carried out by an expert. Our surveyors will determine the underlying causes of the problem. We provide a written report and make appropriate recommendations from which we will provide an itemised quotation for the remedial work required.
