What is Condensation and what causes it?

Condensation forms when warm moist air meets a cold surface. This tends to happen more frequently during the winter months as the building structure is cold; and because windows are opened less the moist air is unable to escape.

Condensation can often occur for short periods in bathrooms and kitchens because of the steamy atmosphere, and frequently for long periods in unheated bedrooms and cupboards or behind large items of furniture where the movement of air is restricted.

Damage can be caused to materials that are out of sight for example under suspended timber floors and in roof spaces.

Any sign of mould growth is an indication of the presence of moisture and if caused by condensation gives warning that heating, structural insulation or ventilation may require improvement. Examples of the type of ventilation units we can install can be seen at Nuaire Ltd

If your home, or a house you are considering buying suffers from condensation your first step should be a call to us.

A Survey

Our friendly and knowledgeable survey team can talk to you about what you have found and make an appointment with you for one of our qualified surveyors to visit and carry out a survey.

Our site surveys - which include a comprehensive report, remedial specification and (if necessary) an estimate for repairs, are provided without obligation. Our reputation for integrity and accuracy has been hard-won and because of that we never pay our surveyors commission. Whether you contract with us or not they are paid the same.

Once you have reviewed the report, you may have some questions. Your surveyor will be happy to answer them for you.

Treatment

As with our surveyors, our installation teams are employed directly by us. They carry ID and arrive on time, in sign-written vehicles. Most of them have worked for us for over fifteen years and the experience shows. They are thorough, clean and tidy. We never forget that this is your home and we treat it like your home. Our specialist partner sub-contractors also work to our code of practice. Although some aspects of the work can be dusty and noisy we use industrial standard dust barriers to reduce any mess to a minimum and we clean up properly once we are done.
