What is Condensation?
Condensation is the process in which a gas cools and becomes a liquid. In this case, condensation is when humid air comes in contact with a cold surface, forming water droplets.
Condensation is a problem that occurs in millions of homes. It can damage walls, ceilings, window frames, and even clothing. Condensation is caused by doing everyday activities, such as showering, cooking, or washing. If not prevented or treated, it can cause black molds to form and later cause respiratory problems for those living in homes that are very damp.
How can it be prevented?
Since a lot of condensation occurs mostly in the kitchen and bathrooms, extractor fans are built in some homes so that it removes stale air.
Opening windows while cooking helps as well as keeping the lids on a sauce pan.
A third way of preventing condensation is by heating your homes. Condensation is usually a problem in a home that is not heated properly. This can be solved by using a heating system.
