Condensation on windows is a common problem, especially in the winter. There are simple ways to get rid of the problem, but you may need to call in a professional to fix the problem if it has become too serious. There are also some precautions you can take to reduce the risk of mould growing on your windows.

First, you need to determine if you’re dealing with interior or exterior condensation. Generally, exterior condensation forms when the temperature of the outside surface is lower than the dew point of the glass. This is often caused by hotter days or nights. If the outside is cool or sunny, there is no need to worry. However, if the humidity levels outside are high, external condensation is a concern. You can also prevent internal condensation by keeping the room at a steady temperature.

If you notice condensation on your windows, you should open the window immediately and remove the water. You can do this using a clean towel or microfibre cloth. Depending on the severity of the problem, you might need to replace the panes or seals. You should check for any leaks in the insulating gas between the panes. The leakage can allow heat to escape in the winter or moisture to enter in the summer. This is especially dangerous, as it could cause structural damage to your home.

If you have a double-glazed window, you might need to have the unit repaired. If you find that the inside of the unit has condensation, the moisture is most likely coming from a leak in the insulating gas. It is important to have the unit checked by a professional, as this can lead to costly repairs.

Once you’ve identified the source of the problem, you can use a solution to wipe away the condensation. You can use a spray-on solution and a cleaning cloth to do this. You can also use a dehumidifier or a window vacuum. After wiping away the condensation, you should let the glass air dry for a while.

If you don’t have a window vacuum, you can always use a squeegee to remove the moisture. You can also use a soft cleaning cloth to wipe down the window. If the problem persists, you might need to replace the window panes.

You should also check for any gaps in the frame. These can allow the moisture to collect and can result in a nasty damp issue. While it’s not quite as dangerous as a penetrating damp, you still want to make sure that the window seals are properly working.

You should also keep the heating on at a steady temperature. This will ensure that the window will not have too much humidity, which can result in black mould and mould spores. This is a health hazard, as it can result in respiratory problems and allergies. You should also keep your windows open to avoid this.

If you have a double-glazed unit, you might need to have the seals replaced. Alternatively, you can replace the window panes with Pilkington’s ActivTM self-cleaning glass, which has a hydrophilic coating that helps to keep the panes from getting clogged with dust and dirt.
