Condensation is the most common type of dampness to occur in properties. It causes the growth of mould on walls, ceilings, furniture and even clothing, causing wallpaper to peel and other issues in the house such as wet rot.
It can be caused by issues such as poor ventilation, lack of insulation and is built up from normal, everyday task such as cooking or showering resulting in large levels of moisture in the air. This poor air quality can cause health issues and is especially a problem for those with breathing difficulties such as asthma. It is more prone to occur in flats and bungalows.
Damp problems can be misleading with people often thinking they have rising or penetrating dampness, it can in fact all be the results of condensation in many cases.
