After the announcement of the national roadmap on gradually easing coronavirus restrictions, we are currently looking at the detail of the plan and working out when it will be appropriate to reintroduce services such as non-essential repairs. We’ll provide a detailed update as soon as possible.

winter warmers: Reduce your risk of condensation

If you notice condensation appearing in your home whenever you cook, run a bath,  shower or dry clothes, our Repairs Team have a few simple tips to help you prevent it.

 

Condensation – reduce your risk

  • Wet windows and walls caused by cooking, bathing and drying clothes indoors could create mould, damp or damage to your furnishings.
  • Leave some background heating on during the day in cold weather. Around 15°C or 62°F should help
  • Don’t block your radiators or heaters with furniture when they’re on
  • Keep your fixed vents clear
  • Open your windows and vents slightly
  • Close your kitchen and bathroom doors when cooking, washing or bathing
  • Put lids on pans when you are cooking
  • Hang your washing on a clothes horse or rail instead of directly on radiators
  • Put cold water in your bath first to reduce the amount of steam.
