Advice on condensation in the home

Reducing moisture

The average family can produce up to 20 litres of water per day, just from everyday activities.

There are things that you can do to reduce moisture in your home:

  • When cooking, cover pans with lids, keep the kitchen door closed and make sure a window is open or the extractor fan is on
  • Make sure your tumble dryer is vented to the outside
  • If you have to dry clothes indoors, put them in the bathroom with the door closed and the window open or fan on,  or put them on a clothes dryer in another room with the room door closed and the windows open
  • When bathing, run cold water into the bath before the hot water to minimise steam production
