Condensation is the change of water from its gaseous form (water vapor) into liquid water. Condensation generally occurs in the atmosphere when warm air rises, cools and loses its capacity to hold water vapor.
Condensation Damp Proofing
A build-up of moisture in the home can cause a range of problems and can potentially damage the fabric of the building if allowed to continue. And if mould starts to grow, this can even affect the health of the occupants.
Moisture can get into your home in several ways:
rain can get in through leaking roofs, blocked or damaged guttering, leaky walls and poorly fitting doors and windows;
leaks from plumbing faults, failed appliances and poorly sealed baths and showers can quickly build up, often where you can’t see them;
ground water can rise up through the walls and floor if the damp proof course isn’t working properly;
we add moisture to the air all the time just by breathing, as well as from cooking, drying clothes, and from our pets and house plants;
If you have rain water getting in, or any internal leaks or signs of rising damp, then it’s important to get the problem sorted out quickly. You’ll usually need a professional to come in and advise you. Moisture in the air can cause problems too if it leads to too much condensation.
