Ventilation and Condensation – Mould in Kensington
Condensation is a problem that afflicts many private and commercial properties. If left unchecked, mould can quickly form on surfaces ranging from walls to furniture and clothing. When you discover mould in your Kensington premises, it’s time to act. Call in the professionals at Prokil today as we supply cutting-edge solutions to treat and prevent mould outbreaks.
The tricky part is often pinpointing the source of the problem. We never think to look in certain places such as under the floorboards, and this is often where mould is found lurking. More often than not, condensation is the result of poor ventilation. At Prokil, our experts know exactly what to look for. We will identify the source of the mould, treat the affected area and install state-of-the-art ventilation systems to control the flow of moisture.
What are the problems caused by condensation?
The primary causes of condensation are more often than not internal sources such as:
Exposed cooking pots
Where there is a lack of ventilation providing adequate circulation of air, moisture is allowed to accumulate and settle on surfaces. These areas will be prevented from drying leading to an increase in damp and humidity. In certain cases, opening a window may be sufficient. However, in most setups, this is simply not practical. If you have noticed dark patches and spots forming, then place a call to our team right away.
Failure to act will allow for mould to spread to other surfaces expanding outwards from the source. Not only will this create an uncomfortable living and working environment, but it could also have a detrimental effect on your health. Plus, other issues such as wet rot and woodworm will be drawn to the perfect environment created by the damp conditions.
How to spot if the ventilation in your Kensington property is inadequate
Our customers often ask us what the best way to spot whether they have inadequate ventilation is. The most effective way of identifying condensation is by inspecting your surfaces. Should you notice the presence of water droplets, this is a clear indicator of higher than normal humidity levels. The air may also feel damp and cold, and you might notice plaster or wallpaper starting to peel away.
