Condensation accounts for approximately 70% of reported damp problems in domestic dwellings.
Nuaire have been curing condensation problems since 1972 and have a number of cost effective solutions for both home owners and landlords, ensuring the fabric of your properties are protected and the living environment for its occupants is a healthy one.
Importance of Ventilation
Condensation dampness is a result of too much moisture in the air generated by bathing, showering and even breathing. Most homes will experience condensation dampness with streaming windows, damp surfaces and musty smells being tell-tale signs.
Occupant lifestyle also contributes to condensation, would you believe just one occupant within a property produces 2 litres of moisture a day.
More importantly however condensation can also lead to mould growing on walls and in some cases on our clothes when stored in cupboards. The Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) identifies damp and mould as one of the 24 hazards which could cause 'risk or harm to health and safety of an actual or potential occupier'.
As we improve housing conditions with double glazing and insulation, the air tightness of a property is increased, allowing little room for a property to be naturally ventilated and as a result condensation dampness is becoming growing problem.
In short condensation dampness is a common consequence of modern living and more energy efficient homes.
When condensation dampness starts to form and in particular mould growth, it is not only unpleasant but damaging and costly to your property, causing premature redecoration or replacement. Many people also associate mould growth with health problems.
