  • Wooden window frames that begin to rot are a cause for concern and should be checked by a professional.
  • If condensation is being cause by an existing damp problem such as rising or penetrative damp then swift action should be taken to stop the problem getting worse and to reverse any damage already caused.

 

Managing Condensation At Home:

 

  • Use a dehumidifier; although these can be pricey they are effective.
  • You can lay absorbent sponge strips at the base of the window to catch the moisture and protect the frame.
  • You should wipe your windows down every morning especially if you have timber frames. Don’t dry the cloth used on a radiator as this will perpetuate the condensation problem.
