Condensation is one of the most common causes of dampness within buildings. If left untreated, it can lead to permanent damp problems or mould can develop. Without controlling, the mould can become airborne and cause respiratory problems. We have successfully treated many properties around Torbay with good condensation control.
Controlling the condensation becomes easier when you know what originally causes it. It is caused by warm moisture in the air coming into contact with a significantly colder surface such as a window. Bacteria can then form on the water droplets and this is the mould that you then see.
HOW WE CONTROL CONDENSATION
The control of condensation can be achieved by various methods from simple ventilation system to positive pressure systems to effective insulation; all of which can be provided by APT. Another method of condensation control can be achieved by controlling the relative humidity in the property. Humidistat sensors can be integrated in condensation control units or independently mounted. These detect the moisture in the air and automatically co-operate with any mechanical systems until a balanced humidity level is achieved.
