Breaking the mould - condensation or damp?

Posted: 06.02.2017

Condensation occurs when warm, moist air comes into contact with a cool surface in poorly ventilated areas. It causes mould mainly in the corners of rooms or by windows.
Damp is usually caused by a fault in the structure of the building that allows moisture from the outside to get into the walls. Damp is identified by clear lines like tide marks on the wall.
