Top Tips to Stop Condensation

The summer is coming to a close, which means that the damp, cold Bulgarian winter is not far away. In other words, it's time to start considering one of the most frequent problems that hits your home when the cold weather commences: condensation. It's a pesky problem that though may seem insignificant, can in fact cause a lot of damage. Here are some tips to keep condensation in your home to a minimum.


1. Make sure your home is well ventilated. This contributes profoundly to the prevention of condensation.

2. Dry out your fabrics outside. If you can, try not to dry your clothes inside and if you use a tumble dryer check to see whether it's ventilated. Otherwise, don't use it.

3. Open a window when you shower. Every time somebody showers it creates a mass of moisture in the air, so next time you head for the bathroom remember to either open a window, or switch on the extractor fan if you have one.

4. Don't place your furniture to close to the wall. There must be at least a small gap between it so it won't cause the air to become trapped, which causes condensation on the walls.

5. Use an extractor fan in your kitchen. Every time you cook, the moisture that leaves the food fills the air, causing it to settle on your windows and walls. Keep your extractor fan on at all times when you're cooking in the kitchen.

6. Maintain your home. It's vital to make sure you check the roof of your house to ensure there are no leaks.

7. Keep rooms at a constant temperature. Allow the temperature in your home to remain constant to prevent condensation forming.
