There are a few very simple, but nevertheless very effective ways we can reduce the risk of condensation, just by simply being aware of some of the activities we would normally undertake without even thinkingFinally, but very importantly, try to ensure you have a regular flow of fresh air around your house/buildings. This effectively dries out any moisture vapour and prevents it reaching concentration levels where condensation may become an issue. Granted, nobody wants to release all of that lovely heat from a building in the depths of winter, however, opening windows for a short period of time may result in the internal environment becoming temporarily cooler, but it will also significantly help to reduce the risk of condensation. Hopefully, now that you know how condensation occurs you can start to thing about ways in which you can help to reduce the risk. In future articles I will discuss other forms of damp in buildings such as rising damp and penetrating damp.
