Mould – Ventilation and Condensation in Brighton
Poor ventilation can lead to serious problems, and Brighton homeowners often forget that good ventilation is needed. Even in areas such as under your floorboards, good ventilation is still an essential requirement. Prokil provides effective solutions that are guaranteed to help neutralise and prevent the damage caused by condensation in your home.
Poor ventilation can lead to a series of problems, including condensation, damp issues, increased humidity and interior climate imbalance. This, in turn, will trigger additional problems such as mould, wet rot and woodworm.
Issues Caused by Condensation
Condensation due to the lack of adequate air circulation and good ventilation will quickly cause mould to form in your Brighton property. You will see black or green spots appearing on the surface of walls or woodwork. Mould may also appear on walls behind cabinets, on the back of furniture and can even be transferred to porous surfaces such as your clothes.
High levels of moisture in your Brighton home may also lead to health problems. Wooden furniture in humid areas provides the perfect habitat for woodworm while timbers used as part of the structure may suffer issues such as dry and wet rot.
How can I tell if my Brighton home has condensation?
One of the worst things that can happen due to bad ventilation in your Brighton property is condensation. Condensation is the transformation of air with high humidity content into moisture or even water droplets.
Condensation should be avoided as this can lead to other issues, including mould, corrosion and increased heat transfer.
The first sign of condensation is water droplets. Once moist air comes into contact with cold surfaces such as walls and windows, it cools down and turns into water droplets. Fortunately, spotting this is relatively easy and can be achieved by a quick inspection of the affected areas.
