Condensation solutions

Most condensation problems can be solved by taking action to prevent the build up of warm, damp air that causes condensation. Generally this is a two step process, principally you should attempt to reduce the amount of humid air you release into the property and secondly, you should try to improve the ventilation to keep rooms fresh and dry.

However, more serious and persistent condensation problems may require professional solutions in order to ensure that the issue is properly dealt with.
