Yes, an extractor fan can be quite effective in combating damp caused by condensation. Extractor fans are designed to remove excess moisture and improve ventilation in high-moisture production areas, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms.
By extracting moisture from the air, it can help to prevent condensation and inhibit the growth of mould and mildew. It is important to ensure that the extractor fan is properly installed and adequately sized for the space to maximise its effectiveness in reducing dampness. The extractor should have sufficient runtime and draw / suction to fully expel the moisture generated within the room.
However, an extractor fan won’t be able to remove damp caused by penetrating or rising damp – that will require professional treatment to remove. Contact our team today for a long-lasting damp treatment solution.
