Reducing condensation dampness in your home

Many of the reports of 'damp' that the Council receives from tenants are actually caused by household condensation.

When moisture in the air comes into contact with a cold surface like a window or a wall it condenses into water droplets.

If excess condensation isn't dealt with it can lead to mould growing on walls, furniture and even on your clothes. This can be harmful to the health of you and your family.

There are some simple steps you can take to minimise condensation in your home.

Please watch this video to see what you can do to ensure condensation doesn't become a problem for you:
