Condensation is the common name for the water droplets that form on windows and windowsills due to warm air meeting cold surfaces.
These water droplets can form for a number of specific reasons but the most common is the lack of fresh air ventilation within a property.
Other known reasons for the forming of condensation include everyday activities such as showering, cooking or drying washing without ventilating the property sufficiently.
The presence of condensation is often first indicated by the development of black mould on walls, ceilings, and even clothes, furniture and other fabrics.
Condensed water can go on to provide sufficient moisture to allow timbers to rot. To alleviate these issues, the indoor air humidity needs to be lowered, or air ventilation in the building needs to be improved.

There are risks involved with even the smallest amount of black mould present in any home. It can have dramatic effects on those who already have respiratory problems such as asthma and has even been known to be the cause of other diseases.
There is information about the health effects of black mould at http://www.blackmould.me.uk
Treating of Condensation
Our solution to the problem is the instillation of a whole home ventilation system. The system we use will control the condensation within the entire property from a single point and eliminate the presence of condensation.
Unlike many other companies we employ a fully qualified electrician to undertake this work and ensure the unit is fitted correctly.
