Suddenly, you’ve gone up the loft and realised mould and condensation, what do you do? Well, first we always recommend making sure the airways are not blocked up. This is one of the main reasons, you get a build of condensation. Here is more on the subject and how you can help prevent loft condensation.
Remove boxes/possessions if possible
If your roof has vents and you are having issues with condensation, then these may be covered up. Ventilation is available in the loft space to make sure there is no build-up of moisture. These vents are typically located at the eaves (lower part of the roof). If you are placing things in the loft, this can disrupt airflow and render the vents useless.
Make sure ventilation spots are not obstructed/closed up
It can be easy to miss it, but sometimes people forget they have left a ventilation spot blocked. Make sure they are open for the best results.
Adding additional vents
If you’re running out of ideas, another great option which we recommend is to add additional vents. At ERoofing, we sell Manthorpe Vents which have become a popular product amongst our customers.
