Tackle condensation

Are you having problems with condensation?  It mainly appears during cold weather when there’s a lot of moisture in the air and can lead to damp and mould if it’s not tackled.  Try these simple steps to prevent it:

Dry clothes outside if possible.

  1. Put lids on saucepans.
  2. Use cooker hoods and extractor fans.
  3. Keep furniture away from walls so the air can circulate.
  4. Don’t block vents or extractor fans.
  5. Keep your home reasonably warm.
  6. Keep bathroom and kitchen doors closed when washing or cooking.

If mould does occur, wash it with a mixture of 1 part bleach to 3 parts water or buy a fungicidal wash.
