Condensation 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 these 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 create condensation in everyday activities like cooking, washing, and breathing. We can’t prevent these things, but our team have specialist tools to check the humidity levels in your home.
We produce a lot of condensation in the house and there are so many areas where mould will keep growing. That’s why it’s important to tackle mould the correct way. Did you know by cleaning mould without the correct solution, mould spores aren’t killed and will come back within months? You may accidentally spread it and make it become airborne. We have full expertise in the subject and 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 to leave the building. We can install trickle vents in each of your windows to allow constant air flow from your house.
Always leave your extractor fan on for a good 20 minutes after you cook or wash. This allows the moist air to flow out of the room instead of going into cold areas of the room which will cause mould. We can install extractor fans with humidity sensors on which will automatically come on when humidity levels go above recommended levels.
Avoid drying clothes in your house. The moist air 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 as 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 it may cause a bad smell and other severe problems.
Keep a steady level of warm temperature in your house. This will help to prevent condensation.
