The Difference between Damp and Condensation
Moisture settles on surface areas that are much colder than the ambient temperature. This is escalated further when there is no airflow to move the moisture around the room. If left untreated, this can cause severe damage to walls, furnishings, and clothing.
Furthermore, this can affect our health. Moisture will eventually progress onto all walls and surfaces, forming mould spores that progress into black mould. When these mould spores become airborne, they can occupants more susceptible to colds and cause problems for those with respiratory conditions.
Unlike damp, condensation can usually be prevented by ensuring that all rooms have adequate ventilation, especially bathrooms, where the most moisture is released into the air. Typical measures include opening windows to allow stale air to escape, or not using radiators to dry clothes. You can also install a ventilation system.
Types of Ventilation Systems
A Simple Air Brick
The Passive Air Vent
The Bathroom Ventilator
- A Standard On/Off Ventilator Triggered By the Light Switch
- A Timer Version That Stays Running for around 15 Minutes after the Bathroom Has Been Used, Extinguishing Any Moisture
- A Moisture-Sensing Installation That Runs as and When Needed
The Heat Recovery Unit
For larger areas where high moisture is present throughout, a positive ventilation system will be more effective. This system can be mounted in a loft space or at the top of the stairs and involves having ducting pipes leading to all rooms.
