Condensation, Damp and Mould

Dampness is a major problem to many houses and flats.  Dampness can cause mould on walls and furniture and make timber window frames, floors and skirting boards rot.  It also encourages the growth of house dust mites and can increase the risk of respiratory illness.  It can also damage wall plaster and may give rise to dry rot.

It is important to be able to tell the difference between damp caused by condensation and damp caused by other factors such as rising damp, rainwater coming in, defective plumbing or poor drainage.
