The excess moisture in the dwelling must first be removed and the moisture levels reduced to manageable ones. All properties carry moisture and moisture is built up by everyday activities like cooking, washing, showering and even breathing. The drying of any property is undertaken using dehumidifiers and air movement, combined with added heat. The heat and air movement aids in evaporation whilst the dehumidifiers convert moisture vapour to liquid moisture and deposit the liquid externally.
Ventilation must be added to the dwelling to ensure moisture does not become trapped moving forward. This can involve simply opening windows and doors frequently, adding passive ventilation in the walls of the affected rooms or adding forced ventilation into the walls or ceiling of the dwelling.
By raising the core temperature of any building and not allowing it to reach low temperatures overnight, condensation issues can be reduced and even sometimes eliminated through the use of heat. Typically we find that adding heat will slow the impact of condensation but not stop it altogether. So added heat combined with ventilation is the perfect solution to condensation.
