Prevent condensation in loft & attic spaces
Why do lofts suffer from moisture problems? These days, many buildings have well insulated ceilings. Insulation helps to keep rooms warm in the colder months, which it great. However, this also means that most lofts and attics are colder than the rest of the building. Cold attic spaces are at the greatest risk of moisture problems. If humid air makes its way into a loft space, condensation can form on the cold surfaces. Lofts can also contain more moisture if the ventilation is poor or there is a water tank installed. There could be a leak in the roof, or steam rising and seeping in from bathrooms below.
When circumstances traps moisture in lofts and attics, it can lead to damp, mould growth, rot, and bad odours. It can also affect items that you store there. Items like furniture, documents, electrical equipment, and metal objects, can suffer.
