Condensation in Derby
Condensation isn’t only a nuisance, if ignored it can cause major problems to the occupants, the furniture, the decoration and the very structure of a building. Condensation on windows typically brings about rapid decay to the lower areas of window casings, condensation on walls and ceilings causes mould and damage to to the plaster, condensation on the undersides of roof surfaces can lead to rot and decay in the loft. Damp homes will cost more to heat and spores from mould could lead to health conditions. So if you’re suffering with condensation in Derby we’re here to help you!
Condensation In Buildings
Condensation in buildings comes from water vapour in the air cooling and precipitating into water in chillier sections of the structure or on cool surfaces like windows. All occupied houses will contain water vapour, it comes from our cooking, bathing and breathing.
Buildings with poorly insulated walls and bad ventilation are particularly susceptible to this problem. It often triggers damage in a building similar to penetrating or rising damp and it generally appears in the same places. Condensation is the biggest source of mould in houses.
