Dampco are Condensation Removal Experts

What is Condensation and how does it occur?

Condensation occurs when the moisture vapour levels in the home are too high for the internal atmosphere to suspend the moisture vapour in the air. As the home cools overnight, the moisture vapour falls from the air and condensates on the coldest surfaces in the room or property, often causing window condensation problems. Condensation forms on the coldest surfaces - these can be ceilings without insulation, windows, areas behind beds and other furniture, mattress etc... Once condensation forms, mould will follow.

Get rid of Condensation Forever

Condensation is simple to get rid of and erradicating condensation in the short term involves the use of sophisticated drying techniques involviing air movement and dehumidification. Once under control in the short term, long term solutions involve adding heat and ventilation. It is possible to erradicate condensation overnight and we have done this on many occasions. Dampco can get rid of condensation in any dwelling easily.

Drying Removes Condensation

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.

Ventilating the Home Removes Condensation from windows and other surfaces

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.

Heating aids in resolving condensation problems

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.

Inspect for Moisture & Damp

  • Thermal imaging cameras detect moisture and danp problems behind walls.
  • Inspection cameras can detect mould and rising damp in areas that may not be accessible.
  • Penetrative and non penetrative moisture metres can detect moisture and damp on wall surfaces and inside wall cavities.
