Condensation Damp Treatment Specialists in Birmingham
What is condensation?
Condensation is caused by high levels of humidity in the air becoming trapped within homes in Birmingham. This can be due to one of three major factors or a combination of more than one of them: inadequate heating, poor insulation or insufficient ventilation.
How can I tell if I have a problem?
Condensation damp problems are on the increase in Birmingham and the West Midlands. As many as 25% of us are affected by it and most damp problems reported are actually condensation problems. There are a few tell-tale signs that you have a condensation issue in your home. When it starts to become an issue which requires treatment, you will see some of the following signs:
Damp walls that feel wet to touch
A musty or damp odour
Black mould growing along the edges of windows, behind furniture and junctions between the wall and floor or ceiling
Once you know that you have condensation, you can begin to think about the best condensation treatment to take. You can also rule out other damp problems such as rising damp or penetrating damp. It’s important when you book a damp survey, that the surveyor who assesses your property in Birmingham is experienced in all types of damp – including condensation.
Black mould problems
When warm air touches cold surfaces, such as walls and windows, the moisture within the room will condense. If relative humidity levels are at 80% for six hours or more, this tends to lead to black mould growth.
A variety of daily activities can increase the relative humidity in your home. Cooking, washing, showering or even just breathing. All of these will release moisture into the air, and this can lead to condensation and black mould damp problems.
