In case you didn't know, condensation is a physical phenomenon that occurs when water vapour in the air is transformed into a liquid when it comes into contact with a cold surface.
This type of humidity is common in homes when the inside temperature is higher than the outside temperature, and it manifests itself in the form of mist or small drops of water on contact points such as walls, ceilings and windows; At home, the phenomenon of condensation occurs in very humid environments such as the kitchen or bathroom, or on colder surfaces and corners, such as windows or walls facing north.
And… No one likes it… Right?
Dampness due to condensation also causes the appearance of mould and a strong smell of dampness that can be very uncomfortable and even harmful to health.
The usual causes of condensation damp are
Lack of ventilation
When the rooms are closed for a long time, the air-tightness absorbs the humidity from the air and accumulates it. Opening the windows every day for 10 or 15 minutes is a practical and simple solution to prevent condensation.
Very high heating temperature
Have you ever noticed that condensation damp is more common in the winter? By turning on the heating every day, and in a constant way, we favour the proliferation of humidity by increasing the difference between indoor and outdoor temperature.
When a house has thermal insulation problems, cold enters and humidity "sticks" to the walls.
Some daily actions that help to avoid this type of dampness are dry clothes outdoors (never on radiators or indoors), bring the heating to room temperature, ventilate the bathroom after the shower, and cover the pots, pans and frying pans when cooking.
The presence of condensation on the walls can cause damage to finishes, such as paint peeling, or encourage the proliferation of moulds that make the environment unhealthy and often cause allergies in people.
