3 Simple Solutions To Your Condensation Problem

3 Things You Can Do To Reduce The Threat Of Condensation

You may not worry about a few drops of condensation on your window. After all, it’s only water, right?

Unfortunately, if you ignore the problem of condensation it could get much worse. Condensation can eventually be a cause of mould and mildew in your home.

No one wants to be breathing in mould, especially when it can be easily avoided. Follow these simple tips to help minimise your risk for condensation.

Get your ventilation right

Condensation thrives in humid conditions. Fortunately, a simple solution is to open windows more to let fresh air in. 

Opening windows is particularly important in rooms like bathrooms and kitchens as these rooms can get the most humid. Certain activities, like showering and cooking, can increase the humidity in these rooms.   

An extractor fan is particularly useful during times of high humidity, but many people forget to use it.

Use your washing line

While it may require you to keep an eye on weather updates, one of the best ways to solve the problem of condensation is to stop drying clothes inside your house. Alternatively, you should make an effort to dry your clothes on the washing line outdoors. 

Using your radiators can cause a build up of moisture, raising humidity levels, which is a cause for concern when it comes to condensation.

Be consistent with your heating

Many households like to put heating on sporadically, depending on their needs for the day and the changing temperatures outside. Unfortunately, this is the perfect circumstance for condensation to flourish. 

Therefore, to avoid condensation, it is a good idea to be consistent with your heating. This means keeping it at a constant low temperature to stop condensation forming.

A thermostat

If this advice fails to make a difference to your condensation problem, it could mean that there is an issue with your existing windows. It is likely that they need updating or that they are single glazed, and would work better against condensation if replaced with double or triple glazing.
