Prevent condensation on your windows with 2-ingredient solution that costs pennies – all you need to do is spray & wipe | The Sun

WHETHER single or double glazed, condensation can still appear your windows during the cold winter months.

It might seem harmless, but bad news is it can lead to a whole host of problems if it's not dealt with quickly.

Luckily, there are a few easy tricks you can try to get rid of condensation that won't break the bank.

Experts at QFort have shared some helpful advice households can use this winter.

Water droplets that appear on windows the next morning are prominent in the colder months, as households keep windows closed to stop heat escaping. 

But with nowhere to escape, this warm air converts to water when it hits a window's cold surface and if ignored can gather into pools of water on the ledge and create damp conditions that can turn to mould.

Vent rooms

Ensuring rooms are well ventilated is one of the easiest ways to tackle condensation.

“No matter the season, remember to vent the rooms at least twice a day, 10 to 15 minutes each," the experts told

One way to do this is to crack open a window slightly – it might not seem ideal when it's cold outside, but just a few minutes can make a big difference.

Alternatively, just keeping blinds and curtains open can make a difference and encourage air to circulate efficiently.

Similarly, keeping the interior doors in your home open will allow air to move freely, which in turn will help reduce condensation.

Control humidity levels

Dehumidifiers can help stop condensation from forming on windows – and there are options for all budgets.

They work by either absorbing water and heating it or by using a filter to suck in and cool the air in your home.

Both methods have the same end result: they make moisture in the air turn into actual water, which is collected in an in-built tank.

By pulling moisture from the air, dehumidifiers make it less likely that your air will end up with more water vapour than it can hold.

This in turn improves air quality and reduces dampness and condensation in your home.

One woman claimed to dry her washing in two hours by using a certain setting on her dehumidifier.

What causes condensation?

Condensation is caused by water vapour in the air turning back into liquid water.

It occurs when warm air catches on to a cold surface and it happens regularly when we breathe, bath and shower or cook.

This adds to the amount of water vapour in our home.
