Humidity has different origins? - Rubi & DO IT

Humidity has different origins?

Humidity has different origins?

To stop humidity problems at home, the first thing to do is to figure out what is causing it, therefore its origin then we will be able to solve it. Humidity at home must be avoided at all costs, not only for the aesthetic consequences these issue’s cause, but also because they pose a high risk to our health.

There are three main sources: condensation, Damp and capilary (Below ground). Knowing the problems will help us find the best way to solve the issue’s.

Humidity due to condensation.

Humidity arises when the water vapor in the environment of our home condenses and occurs when the temperature inside the home is higher than the outside temperature. 

 The Initial appearance of mold on walls, ceilings, furniture and even our clothes kept in our closets is the first simptum of humidity due to condensation.

The two most common causes of humidity due to condensation at home are:

  • Poor thermal insulation.
  • Poor ventilation.

 Here are some basic tips that will help prevent humidity due to condensation:

  • Ventilate the room for 10 minutes every day ( Open a wndow even in winter).
  • Do no dry clothes inside the house.
  • Keep doors closed in bathrooms and kitchens as they are usually more likely to transfer humidity to other rooms.
  • There are portable dehumidifiers for those rooms more difficult to control.

Humidity due to damp.

 Patches of damp may appear in those areas where the waterproofing is poor or non-existent on the outside of your home.

If external render is cracked or brick pointing has eroded over time water may seep in through the brickwork mortar and work its way into the home through plaster and paint and show on the inside of your home, Also causing potential structural damage and certain cosmetic damage but may also affect electrical systems. This will create serious humidity problems in the home.

Unfortunately for us, humidity due to damp becomes visible inside but that is not necessarily the point where the problem started. Damp may travel long distances around your property before showing itself inside the home. 

To solve this type of humidity problem you must find the source of the problem to cure the issue.

 Capillary Humidity 

Unfortunately for us, humidity due to damp becomes visible inside but that is not necessarily the point where the problem started. Damp may travel long distances around your property before showing itself inside the home.

The solution to this type of humidity is usually the most expensive of all as it involves building work as well as cosmetic repair.

Humidity at home must be avoided at all costs, not only for the aesthetic consequences these issue’s cause, but also because they pose a high risk to our health.
