Got window condensation? Read on…

If you are one of the many people who are starting to see condensation forming on your windows then the below advice may be very welcome (and the associated products may become your best friends!)

There are various measures you can take to reducing condensation, including ventilating your house, especially when drying clothes or after a bath (just opening a window and closing the door is good). Plus removing condensation will also help to avoid any accompanying mold – wiping window frames regularly can help keep this at bay.Condensation remover

However, if you have been wondering why condensation forms on your windows it’s due to excess humidity in your home. This  manifests itself in the form of condensation on the coldest area of a wall, usually the windows. When the warm air (and the moister it retains) comes into contact with the colder glass in your windows it cools and releases moisture in the form of condensation.

One way to reduce condensation is to control and reduce humidity and increase air flow. So increasing ventilation in your home is a must. Whenever you have a bath or shower make sure you ventilate the room. The easiest way is to open the window and close the door – many people simply open the bathroom door which means all that moisture is simply going into the rest of the house which isn’t what you want! The same applies to drying clothes. We all need to dry our clothes inside the house in Winter for obvious reasons, but ideally drying clothes in a room such as your porch or any room you can shut off from the rest of the house is a good idea. Large amounts of moisture are generated in a house from these two activities, so taking such actions does help.
