What is Condensation?

You may often see condensation on windows within your home. Condensation is caused by the build-up of moisture. In the home, this can occur for several reasons such as the high humidity of indoor air, low temperature of the walls/surfaces, and poor ventilation. These contributing factors to condensation can also be caused by:

  • Cooking.
  • Cleaning.
  • Bathing.
  • Washing up.
  • Drying clothes indoors.
  • Poor ventilation.
  • Inadequate heating.

If you notice condensation within your home, it’s vital that you find the source and act quickly. Condensation can contribute to mould within the home, and structural instability and can even impact your health.

Why is Treating Condensation so Important?

Whether you’re wondering how to stop condensation on windows in your home or have noticed mould growing, one thing is certain. Treating condensation is vital. There are several reasons why remedial action must be taken for condensation, including…

To Protect Your Home
Condensation indicates that water and moisture cannot exit your home, therefore collecting on your surfaces and structures. If left untreated, condensation can form mould which will impact the condition of your property.

To Stop Wet Or Dry Rot From Forming
Treating condensation quickly and professionally is vital to stopping wet or dry rot from forming. Wet or dry rot breaks down the cells within the timber, which causes it to become spongy and unstable.

To Safeguard Your Health
There are several health issues associated with living in damp environments that condensation can create. Untreated condensation can contribute to health conditions such as asthma and other respiratory problems.

How do I Treat Condensation?


  • Structural Waterproofing System
    A Structural Waterproofing System (SWS) is designed to be both highly effective and simple to apply. As one of the leading damp-proofing products, SWS Slurry Powder is simply mixed with water and applied to the prepared masonry surface using a block brush or trowel. The applied product forms an extremely strong chemical bond with the masonry, blocking the passage of water, and becoming an integral part of the structure.
  • Cavity Drainage Membrane System
    A Cavity Drainage Membrane (CDM) system is an exceptionally fast and convenient method of waterproofing. The membrane is attached to walls and ceilings using special sealed fixing plugs. While on the floor there is normally no need for any form of fixing. CDM can be covered with plasterboard, dry lining, screed or a floating timber floor. If any free water enters the cavity behind the membrane then a drainage facility will need to be built in.

We can provide effective solutions for condensation including:

There are several things you can do to help avoid condensation problems in the future:

  • Reduce the amount of moisture in your home such as by keeping lids on pans when cooking or drying clothes outside when possible.
  • Ensure adequate ventilation so moisture can leave your home such as using an extractor fan when cooking, opening window vents and leaving them clear.
  • Make sure that air can circulate the room by leaving gaps between the furniture and the wall.
  • Fix cold spots such as gaps between your wall and loft insulation.

Rising Damp Treatment

Rising damp is the term used to describe the process of water being absorbed from the ground and through the walls of a building. Called capillary action, this process typically results in a visible ‘tide-mark’ which can be seen at around one metre up the wall. Walls surrounded by porous materials such as plaster, timber and wallpaper are likely to be impacted by rising damp. If you spot rising damp in your home or other property, it’s vital that you call professionals to take remedial action immediately. Contact us for more information.
