CONDENSATION & TIMBER TREATMENT
Condensation is regarded as one of the most common forms of damp. It’s usually caused by high humidity, poor heating systems, and inadequate ventilation. As the temperature drops, condensation rises.
Household activities, such as cooking, can raise the humidity levels in a building. This humid air then condenses on colder surfaces, such as walls and windows – resulting in condensation and subsequently damp and mould related problems.

Treatment of Condensation:
Damp problems like condensation can quickly get worse with time. If you already notice any signs of dampness, you need to get it properly inspected by damp specialists, as soon as possible. Only a professional damp specialist can shortlist the causes of the dampness problem and find the faults in the property that need to be fixed for it to be resolved.
Figuring out whether or not it is actually condensation and not other forms of damp should be left to the specialist damp surveyors. It’s always advisable to consult an expert, as there are other kinds of damp, such as penetrating or rising damp, which need to be ruled out before arriving at the conclusion that the problem is occurring due to condensation only.
