CONDENSATION DAMP

Condensation is the single biggest cause of dampness in the Forest of Dean, Wye Valley and surrounding towns such as Ross and Hereford and is responsible for many significant dampness problems in residential buildings. Damp and Mould Control offer a wide range of solutions for problems of mould and condensation dampness.

Many properties, especially tenanted flats can suffer from condensation, resulting in black or green mould growth developing on furnishings, clothing and the walls / ceilings within the property.

Mild cases of condensation can be alleviated by the occupants managing the moisture production, ventilation and heating. Simply covering pans when cooking, opening windows and avoiding drying clothes indoors can be helpful.

In many cases however, modern living styles result in an accumulation of moisture vapour within the property, which combined with poor heating and ventilation arrangements, provide the ideal conditions for mould to develop.

In order to provide a reliable, effective solution to such problems, especially in cases where the owner does not occupy the residence, the most effective methods of preventing condensation are to improve the air quality, by removing the damp laden air and ensuring a supply of fresh, filtered air in to the property.

Damp and Mould Control have a range of condensation control systems, from simple extractor ventilators, single room solutions, incorporating heat recovery ventilators, to full positive pressure ventilation systems, which displace and dilute moisture laden air and ensure air circulation within the property.

Our Surveyors will inspect the property to identify the cause of the problems and provide a report detailing the extent of the problem, along with our recommended solution and a quotation for any proposed works.

Damp and Mould Control Condensation systems are installed by our own highly trained operatives, with minimum disruption to the occupants. The installation is usually completed within one day and involves installing the appropriate condensation control unit, in conjunction with passive ventilators where specified.
