Treating Condensation In London & Berkshire:
DH Damp Proofing & Timber are specialists in treating condensation in properties across London and Berkshire. Once we have conducted a professional survey and confirmed the diagnosis as condensation we will put into place a plan of action to treat it. Treating condensation is sometimes relatively easy and sometimes the issue may be complex. Below are some hints and tips on treating condensation and preventing condensation.
- Improve Heating – Your heating should be at a constant low heat without any fluctuations, this helps keep the interior warm and the air within the property less condense. Heat exchange fans are also effective at treating condensation because they draw in warm air from outside and send the moist air within the property outside.
- Generate Less Moisture – Of course you will still need to cook and shower, just make sure that there is adequate ventilation. Don’t dry washing on the agar or radiators if you already have a condensation problem as this creates more moisture in the air. The same happens if you are using bottled gas or paraffin heaters, we also recommend checking that any tumble dryer vents direct vapour outside of the property.
- Effective Ventilation – Everyone knows opening windows will help ventilation, however this leads to a chilly temperature in the winter months. DH Damp Proofing & Timber may recommend air bricks or passive vents be installed. Another treatment would be a positive pressure ventilation unit which actively pushes damp air out of the property and decreases the humidity within the property.
