Fixing the Condensation Problem
in Homes & Commercial Areas
Call the Professionals to Fix Damage from Condensation in Sandusky, OH
Condensation is a significant problem for many homes and businesses, especially newer structures built after the 1970s. Condensation occurs when air reaches the dew point temperature. Dew point temperature is the temperature at which water will condense and collect on a cooler surface. All air has water in it. The more humid the air is, the more water it holds — and the higher the dew point temperature. The humid air will condense more frequently because building surfaces at or below dew point temperatures are more readily available. When condensation occurs, water droplets form — just like when you take a cold soda can outside in the summer. The warm-moist air cools as it nears the cold can and eventually reaches the dew point temperature, forming water droplets on the can. This phenomenon occurs in our homes and businesses, but normally with much smaller water droplets, as surfaces are generally just a few degrees below dew point temperatures. This condensation can cause significant problems in structures. Condensation can cause mold growth, water damage, bacteria growth, musty odors, and other problems throughout the home. If you suspect some type of condensation issue or moisture problem, call the professionals at Certified Restoration to assess your home.

Condensation Problems Cause Most Residential Mold Damage
Whether the cause of condensation is excessive crawl space humidity or a lack of proper attic ventilation, these problems require immediate attention. There is mold seed on every surface, and there is always a “food” source present, much like spreading grass seed over everything. If we add water, the seed will sprout. If you never water, then the seed will never sprout. It has been our observation over 20-plus years of residential indoor air quality assessments, that more than 90 percent of all residential mold colonization comes from condensation. When condensation occurs, mold, mildew, and other types of rot can occur. This damage can cause the compromise of important structural aspects, placing residents at risk. Prompt assessment and remediation by the professionals at Certified Restoration can help address condensation problems effectively.
