What is Condensation?
All air contains water vapour. The amount of vapour air can hold will depend on its temperature - warm, moist air can hold more water vapour than cooler air.
Condensation occurs when this moist air meets a cooler surface. This is because when the air hits a surface cooler than the air itself, the maximum amount of vapour it can hold will reduce. Some of this excess vapour will then condense out into liquid water onto this surface. Regular household activities such as showering, cooking, washing and drying clothes can also contribute to water vapour levels inside the home.
Condensation can occur on surfaces or inside walls, ceilings or floors. This can lead to mould, mildew and decay. If mould spores become airborne indoors this can have a harmful effect on human health.
To combat condensation we offer services such as:
What is a sub floor & what is sub floor ventilation?
