How to Stop Damp in your Conservatory

Having mould or damp in your conservatory isn’t good. It can damage fabrics and harm your health. Mould occurs when there is moisture in the air. The moisture then condenses on windows and surfaces. Poor ventilation or a large temperature difference can cause this problem. The problem can occur between the conservatory and outside or other rooms.

The amount of ventilation needed depends on the direction the conservatory faces. Conservatories facing south might have more condensation and dampness. This is due to the direct heat from the sun.

To prevent mould or damp, increase airflow in your conservatory. Maintain a consistent temperature as well. This will help reduce condensation. Having a conservatory with double glazing helps a lot with this. The inner pane is warmer than the outer pane, so it helps to stop condensation from forming. You can also use a dehumidifier to control moisture.

Knowing how condensation happens and what things make it worse will help you fix the problem. Once you have located the source of the dampness, find a solution or repair. This could involve using mastic to seal any leaks around window or roof joints. If that doesn’t work or you can’t find the cause, talk to a professional.

Our conservatories follow the building regulations for ventilation. They have opening windows, trickle ventilation, or ventilation eaves. If you have more questions or want more information, talk to our team.
