Top tips on how to keep condensation in your home to a minimum

Condensation happens when the air gets colder and it cannot hold all the moisture. Tiny drops of water appear and if this happens on a regular basis it can cause condensation in your home, leaving black or green mould growth on walls and furniture. It is important to provide sufficient ventilation to allow moisture generated by daily living to escape.

There are steps you can take to reduce the amount of moisture produced. For example:
