Condensation & Mould Solutions
Home Ventilation Solutions has worked with Social Housing providers for many years, curing condenssation & mould in properties and providing healthy homes for tenants.
Social housing providers are committed to providing quality homes for their tenants; ensuring the standard of their homes are maintained or improved via planned and reactive maintenance works.
As part of those works, ensuring social housing homes are adequately ventilated is ever more important, as properties are improved to become more energy efficient and occupant lifestyles along with changes to our climate, result in clothes having to be dried inside and windows kept closed.

- Quickly and effectively cure any existing condensation dampness within a property

If condensation occurs over a prolonged period of time, other signs will start to appear such as damp patches on walls, peeling wallpaper and ultimately black mould growth! These issues can be unsightly and unhealthy.
So how can we identify when a problem may be present?
- Streaming/steamed up windows
- Damp patches on walls
- Wallpaper damage i.e. peeling and stained
- Blackened window frames
- Mould growth, usually black mould, starts to appearSoft furnishings and
- fabrics become prone to mould and mildew
Unfortunately the reason for condensation being so common is due to simplistic day to day activities within our homes, even down to just simply breathing! But the key is, does your home have sufficient ventilation?
Through the daily routine of showers, baths, boiling kettles, cooking, drying clothes and breathing we produce a significant amount of moisture per day and this moisture has to end up somewhere.
There are simple ways in which to reduce condensation within the home such as opening windows, not drying clothing indoors, using extractor fans , keeping inside temperature reasonably constant. Action can be taken towards the prevention of condensation but this must be kept under control and the key is good constant ventilation!
Our ventilation systems will combat most condensation problems by replacing moist humid air in the home with fresh air from outside the home.
Building regulations now call for more energy efficient, air tight houses, however these cause ventilation problems which in turn causes humid air and condensation, our “positive input” ventilation system addresses these issues.
