What Is Condensation?

This phenomenon typically takes place on non-absorbent materials like bathroom tiles, mirrors, and windows. When warm air meets cold surfaces, it loses its ability to retain moisture, leading to the formation of water droplets known as condensation. Inadequate ventilation in homes exacerbates this problem by trapping humid air indoors for prolonged periods. As such, homeowners must ensure proper airflow throughout their living spaces to prevent excessive condensation buildup and subsequent damage to their property’s structural integrity.

What Causes Condensation To Develop In My Home?

The humidity content in warm air is higher compared to cold air. As the warm air comes into contact with a cooler surface, it loses some of its moisture and forms condensation on surfaces. This occurs due to the decrease in temperature which causes the water vapour present in the air to turn into liquid form. The process of condensation can be observed on various surfaces such as windows, walls, and mirrors when they come into contact with humid or moist air. Therefore, it is essential to maintain proper ventilation and temperature control within indoor environments to prevent excessive moisture buildup that could lead to mould growth or other related issues.

What Are The Effects Of Condensation?

Condensation can wreak havoc on the interior walls of your home, causing damage to both the paint and structure over time. The moisture that accumulates during winter months can cause paint to peel off and lift, leading to unsightly blemishes on your walls.

Additionally, condensation raises humidity levels in your home, resulting in steamed windows and eventually mould growth. This not only poses a health risk but also harms your belongings such as electronics. High humidity corrodes electronic devices from within by lowering resistance and causing short circuits.

Our Condensation Control Solutions

At Sussex Damp Treatments, we understand that condensation can be a frustrating problem. That’s why we offer a range of solutions to address the root cause of your issue. One highly effective and efficient solution is the injection of a chemical damp proof course. This involves injecting silicone-based cream into drilled holes in masonry, allowing the chemicals to permeate and create a water-resistant barrier. This approach is particularly useful for walls that have been saturated with water. Once the source of damp has been addressed, anti-damp paints can also be applied to inhibit mould growth. Additionally, our team provides damp seal paint coverings for interior walls and ceilings to conceal unsightly stains caused by moisture damage. These paint coatings act as moisture barriers, preventing the further escape of unwanted moisture from affected areas.

What Is DPC Injection And How Does It Work?

To combat rising damp in brick and masonry walls, a silicone-based formulation is injected into a sequence of holes made along the base of the affected wall to create a chemical damp-proof course. Contrary to popular belief, this method does not form an impenetrable physical barrier. Instead, it fills the pores of the wall with a water-repellent silicone compound that neutralises charge attraction between brick particles and water molecules.

This lowers adhesive attraction to a level suitable for cohesive force. The injection applicator used is simple and injects 12mm holes drilled into the bed joint with silicone-based damp-proofing cream which diffuses quickly before curing, forming an effective water-repellent damp proof course. Managing increasing damp in homes requires critical attention to detail during the damp-proof injection procedure – one of the most efficient solutions available today.
