Six Top Tips to Beat Condensation 

1:

Keep your home well ventilated by opening windows every day. If you have condensation on windows it is likely that it will be elsewhere in your property too.

2:

When you are cooking always turn the extractor fans in the kitchen on high power. If possible, open the kitchen windows whilst cooking for extra ventilation.

Always keep the lids on pots and pans whilst cooking so that the moisture does not escape from the pans. If the lids are off moisture will be rising from the pans even if you cannot see it. Just as you can only see your breath in the air on a cold day, you can only see the moisture rising from a pan when the temperature is lower.

leave the extractor fan even after you have finished cooking as there will be excess moisture in the air which you cannot see.

3:

After taking a bath or shower there will be excess moisture in the air. To stop condensation forming, the bathroom windows should be opened and extractor fans turned on. Try to keep the bathroom door shut as much as possible so the moisture doesn’t escape into other parts of your home.

4:

When you are drying your clothes, you should dry them outside where possible. If you cannot do this then put them in an enclosed room and keep the window open. If you use a clothes dryer to dry your clothes it is extremely important that the ventilation pipe runs to the outside of your property.

5:

You should leave a small gap between the walls of your home and your furniture as this allows the air to move away from the bottom of the walls and circulate around the room. If air lingers between the furniture and walls it will condense onto walls and could eventually form into black mould.

6: 

During the winter and at other cold times of the year you should try to maintain a constant temperature in your home. This is because it is cold air that causes the warm air to release moisture. If the air is all the same temperature then this cannot happen.
