How to manage condensation in your home

Everyone's home gets condensation at some time — usually when a lot of moisture and steam is being produced. It can occur when you are cooking or bathing or if air is not able to circulate freely. When this damp air comes into contact with cold surfaces, it condenses back to water. Too much condensation in your home encourages mould and mildew growth and unsightly black stains to develop on your walls and in corners.


As an Orbit customer, it is your responsibility to make sure that you are managing condensation and that it does not become a problem and cause damage to the property or your belongings.

The best way of tackling mould is to reduce condensation before a problem starts! 

So before you contact us about condensation, make sure you do a few simple things to help prevent mould and mildew from growing in your home.
