There is no magic solution to condensation. It can often occurs in older properties due to the design of the property and largely how the occupants live. Air can only hold a certain amount of water vapour – the warmer it is the more it can hold. If there is little movement of air and if the water vapours are cooled by contact with a cold surface such as a mirror, a window or even a wall, the water vapour will turn into droplets of water-condensation. So, the warmer you keep your home the less likely you are to get condensation.Condensation occurs in cold weather, even when the weather is dry. It doesn’t always leave a ’tidemark’ round its edges on walls.If there is a ’tidemark’, this dampness might have another cause, such as water leaking into your home this could be from water ingress from plumbing ore even a loose tile on the roof.
