Have you ever had issues with water damage in your home? Then you know how serious it could be when water starts collecting in the wrong location. Unfortunately, there are many different ways in which water can become a problem for you. While leaks from the roof or pipes might be the most obvious culprits, there is also a less obvious source of water that can be much trickier to find, namely condensation. You have probably noticed this effect when taking a hot shower and seeing water collecting on the mirror. The same thing can happen anywhere in your home where there is moisture laden air that hits a cold surface. While this is most common on metal and glass, it could happen on walls and other surfaces. Problems arise when the moisture is allowed to sit and create beneficial growing conditions for mold and rot.

Condensation can be kept to a minimum by use of insulation and dehumidifiers.
