Condensation is caused by the lack of appropriate ventilation and causes:-
Raised humidity in the property, leading to condensation and mould
The internal brickwork and mortar to deteriorate and crumble
Damage to internal decoration
Decay and mould in any timber floors or joists which become damp
An unpleasant smell and black mould spots
Many homes experience problems with condensation related damp in Port Talbot, Neath and the South Wales region generally. Condensation is caused by the lack of appropriate ventilation. As we strive to make our homes more energy efficient through home improvement measures such as cavity wall insulation, double glazing and draught proofing, many more homes are put at a high risk of developing the same issues.
We also understand the challenges faced by those responsible for providing solutions to condensation and damp problems, such as private and social housing landlords and property care specialists.
There are many considerations that have to be made when selecting ventilation in order to protect the fabric of the building, the Indoor Air Quality and the well-being of the occupants, including: the method of construction, how the home is heated, existing ventilation measures and the occupants' lifestyles.
Condensation and moisture causes mould spores that are dangerous to inhale. Mould spores can grow in just four hours as a result of excess condensation in poorly ventilated rooms. They are easily inhaled and can aggravate eczema and respiratory conditions such as asthma.
Moisture can be a dangerous risk to your home's electrical systems, including sockets and light fittings. Unseen condensation can occur under suspended floors, greatly increasing the risk of fungal decay and rot in floor timbers.
Long-term exposure to condensation and the salts contained within moisture can weaken masonry, including decorative stonework and internal plaster finishes.
