Condensation is the process whereby water vapour in the atmosphere is returned to its original liquid state. When moisture in this form of occurs indoors, problems such as damp and mould area caused, which aggravate allergies and ailments such as Arthritis. Although such conditions are easily treated using dehumidifiers, the problem is not uncommon.
According to the Energy Saving Trustsí 2006 report, 1 in 5 homes in England suffer with dampness, condensation and mould growth. All buildings can be susceptible to some form of moisture retention, and the advent of modern appliances coupled with modern building techniques, has resulted in the production of a great deal more moisture. The weather also plays a part in causing condensation, making it important you opt for a dehumidifier specifically designed for the climate you live in.
Condensation on surfaces often goes unnoticed until eventually mildew or black mould spots appear, by which time interstitial condensation may have caused lasting and expensive damage. Symptoms of excess moisture around the house such as damp, mould or musty smells can be rendered after a week of using a dehumidifier. Depending on level of damage, the area should have dried out, ready for any cosmetic damage to be repaired. Continuing using the dehumidifier will prevent problems reoccurring.
