Tips to prevent condensation:
Tenants are responsible for treating damp and mould if the dampness is caused by condensation. Condensation is caused by a build-up of moisture in the
air and can happen if you don't open the windows often enough, don't heat the property thoroughly, dry clothes indoors or allowing steam to build up while showering or cooking. This video, from the
National Landlord's Association, explains what can cause condensation and how you can avoid mould and dampness building up from condensation.
