Condensation is one of the most common types of damp. When wet air comes into touch with a colder surface, it causes condensation. On non-absorbent surfaces such as bathroom tiles, windows, and mirrors, condensation forms. When warm air comes into contact with a cold surfaces, it loses its ability to hold water. This excess water is released in the form of condensation. Condensation is frequent in homes with insufficient ventilation.
Warm air has a higher humidity content than cold air. When the air in a warm environment warms up, it loses some of its humidity, when it comes into contact with a cooler surface. Condensation forms on surfaces as a result of this moisture.
Condensation causes damage on interior walls and the painting over time. The moisture on the walls can freeze over the winter, causing the paint to peel off and lift. Condensation raises humidity levels in your home, resulting in steamed windows and, eventually, mould growth.
Condensation can harm your belongings, including electronics, in addition to being a health risk. High humidity corrodes the insides of electronic devices, lowering resistance and causing short circuits. In any electric appliances you’ve brought out of the basement or cold storage, you should keep a close eye out for high humidity and extreme temperature changes. Sussex Damp Experts can help eliminate the effects of condensation and rid your home of dampness.
Sussex Damp Experts Experts offer many solutions to condensation, depending on the source of your problem.
Injecting a chemical damp proof course is one of the most effective and quickest condensation solutions. In this procedure, a silicone-based cream is injected into drilled holes. The chemicals permeate the masonry, resulting in a water-resistant block. This approach has the advantage of being able to be used on walls that were saturated with water.
Anti-damp paints can also be used once the source of the damp has been fixed. This inhibits the growth of mould. In addition, we provide a damp seal paint cover to hide stains on ceilings and interior walls. This paint acts as a moisture barrier, preventing moisture from escaping.
A silicone-based formulation is injected into a sequence of holes made along the base of a wall that is suffering from the effects of increasing damp to create a chemical damp-proof course.
A chemical DPC, contrary to widespread assumption, does not form an impenetrable physical barrier. Chemical damp-proofing, on the other hand, is an effective method of filling the pores of a brick wall with a water repellent silicone compound. The silicone-lined pores neutralise the brick particles’ charge attraction to the water molecules, lowering adhesive attraction to a level suitable with the liquid’s cohesive force.
A simple injection applicator is used to inject the silicone-based damp-proofing cream into a series of 12mm holes drilled into the bed joint. Before curing, the injected DPC cream diffuses quickly, forming a water-repellent damp proof course that addresses rising dampness in brick and masonry walls.
One of the most critical components of managing increasing damp in homes is the damp-proof injection procedure. It’s also one of the most efficient, providing a dependable and straightforward solution.
A properly applied, high-quality DPC injection can last 20 years or more. We wMost as it will be installed by a qualified specialist.
The cost of repairing condensation is related to the severity of the problem. The costs associated with addressing a damp problem depend on many different factors such as dimensions, property’s architecture, type of damp cause, materials involved, among others.
