Condensation in Maidstone
Condensation in Maidstone is often considered to be the scourge of modern day living, it’s probably the most widespread cause of damp in buildings. It occurs both in old and new houses however it appears to be specially prevalent in buildings that have been modernised. Usually building owners encounter condensation in the winter months rather than the summer months. Condensation can be found in a few different spots, often occurring on walls, windows and floors. Condensation can also be found in roof spaces and in the areas under suspended floors.
What causes condensation in Maidstone?
Condensation in Maidstone occurs when hot air meets a cold surface. Warm air holds more moisture than cold air and as the air cools down it can no longer hold its load of water vapour. This is what’s called the Dewpoint. This form of damp can be triggered in a number of ways including too little ventilation or by excessive moisture created in a bathroom or kitchen, which then condensates in nearby cooler area.
