Any type of external weather protection, such as a specialist render system or resin-based clear coating, will need to be implemented to prevent this from being an issue in the future. Condensation is more noticeable in the winter because the building is colder and the windows are closed less, preventing moist air from escaping.Do you want to learn more? find out
When warm moist air created by everyday household activities comes into contact with a cold surface, it condenses into water droplets, resulting in condensation on an outside wall or window. This is a “homemade” issue. Cooking, breathing, bathing, and drying clothing, to name a few, are all significant sources of water vapour in the household. Try not to dry your clothes at home. If this isn’t possible, close the door to the room where the clothes are drying. Open the windows to enable the moisture from your clothes to escape and prevent it from spreading in your house. – If you’re going to use a tumble dryer, make sure it’s vented to the outside or use a condensing dryer. – The kitchen should be ventilated while cooking. If you have an extractor fan, use it or open a window. Lock the kitchen door when you’re not using it. – Boiling pans should be covered with pan lids to save money on fuel while also reducing moisture.
Close the bathroom door while bathing or washing. If you have an extractor fan, turn it on. If there is a lot of water vapour in the air, turn on the fan or open a window after you’ve finished bathing to disperse the damp air. – To allow air to circulate, keep furniture such as beds and wardrobes away from the walls. – Maintain a constant “hot” temperature in your home. Water does not condense in warm air, so this would reduce condensation. Condensation can be reduced by background heating and ventilation, particularly in the winter. – Portable paraffin or bottled gas heaters should be avoided. When they burn, they emit a lot of moisture, as much as 1 litre of water for every litre of fuel consumed, so if you have to use one, open a window. If the ventilation in the house is sufficient, moisture would be able to escape to the outside. Natural ventilation has decreased as a result of modern life.
