Basements are especially prone to condensation (or ‘sweating’). This is due to a few reasons:
- Limited access to natural ventilation due to their underground location;
- Poor insulation and tend to be cooler than the upper levels of a home;
- More vulnerable to moisture sources such as groundwater seepage and plumbing leaks;
Any of these reasons could be why your basement is sweating, so it’s a good idea to get it surveyed to identify the exact cause.
The best way to prevent basement sweating is by having your basement tanked with an effective damp-proofing system. Contact our team today to find out more on 0800 048 9488.
