Condensation simply is when water forms in the air and then can't escape. The water becomes airborne and goes to the nearest cold surfaces. Mould loves damp areas. Tiny bacterial molecules will then feed of the water and any type of food source nearby. This is what we see as mould. Some bacteria can be harmful to our health. We have specialist tools to check the humidity levels in your home.
We create condensation in everyday activities like cooking, washing and breathing. We cant prevent these things.
As we can see this leaves a huge problem for our homes. We produce a lot of condensation in the house and there are so many areas where mould will keep growing. That's why its important to tackle mould the correct way. Did you know by cleaning mould of without the correct solution will not kill the mould spores and within months it will come back. You may accidentally spread it and make it become airborne. We have full expertise in the subject. We can provide you with the correct way to eliminate the mould for good.
Open windows as often as you can. (having air circulate in your house will allow moist air out of the building) We can install trickle vents in each of your windows to allow constant air floor out of your house.
Always leave your extractor fan on for a good 20 minutes after you cook or wash. This allows the moister to flow out of the room instead of going into cold areas of the room which will course mould. We can install extractor fans with humidity sensors on which will automatically come on when humidity levels reach above recommended levels.
Avoid drying clothes in your house the moister will go to the nearest cold spots. The coldest areas of the house are usually in the corners of ceilings, external walls and behind objects- these are the most common place for mould.
When air circulation is bad there is likely to be mould. Leave a space between cupboards and wardrobes this will allow air circulation and prevent mould. If this is not possible install vents.
Airing cupboards and small rooms should always have vents built into the door. We can fit these very easily.
If possible try insulating areas where mould is apparent but be warned, if it is damp and not condensation it will cause a bad smell and may cause severe problems. Let us take a look.
Keep a steady level of warm temperature in your house. It will help prevent condensation.
