It can lead to mould growth, health issues for occupants and additional maintenance costs. This programme looks at the conditions that give rise to condensation, its impact upon dwellings, and what can be done to rectify its negative effects. It also addresses different forms of condensation, discussing surface and interstitial condensation.
