Mould and Condensation
Condensation can often be seen on windows on a cold morning and occurs when warm moist air hits cold surfaces. This process causes the air to condense and form droplets of water, often resulting in patches of black mould. Mould does not always grow in the same room that the moisture comes from.
This primarily occurs between the months of October and April. It can happen when the weather is cold, even if it is dry, and is usually caused as a result of day to day living.
There are 3 main causes of condensation:
- Too much moisture production in your home
- Insufficient ventilation
- Cool temperatures.
