What happens if I get condensation?

Condensation is caused by steam and vapour turning into water when it touches cold surfaces such as windows, floors and walls. To minimise this, you should:


• Keep your new home warm and ventilated, e.g. open windows and keep trickle vents open.

• Close bathroom and kitchen doors while in use and operate trickle vents / ventilation fans. Also, open windows after baths, cooking, washing etc.

• Put washing outdoors to dry if you can or if drying indoors, keep a window open. If you are using a tumble dryer, check that it is vented to the outside (unless you have a self-condensing type).

• If condensation has occurred you should mop up as much as possible, heat the room, open the window a little and keep the door shut.
