Top tips for Combating Condensation in the Home

If you are noticing signs of condensation such as water collecting on windows or black mould growing on walls then the following hints and tips will reduce condensation levels in your property:

  • Ventilate your property by opening your windows on a daily basis to allow moist air to escape.
  • When using the kitchen or bathroom, keep the door closed and window open if possible.
  • Maintain a gap between walls and furniture, particularly against ‘cold walls'.
  • Allow ventilation of cupboards where possible.
  • Dry wet washing outside. When this is not possible, dry them in a closed room with the window open.
  • If using a tumble dryer, make sure the vent pipe runs outside your property or out a window. 
  • Cover all pots and pans while cooking and avoid leaving anything on the boil for too long.
  • Ensure airways in your property are not blocked, this includes air bricks, drip vents and chimneys.
  • Maintain a constant temperature in your property, especially in the winter.

These tips will reduce the levels of condensation in your property. If your condensation problem has turned into an extreme black mould problem you may need to consider a more professional approach to combating condensation.
