Condensation is a problem to which there is no cure, only a means of control. 

Condensation occurs where moist air comes into contact with air, or a surface, which is at a lower temperature.  When moist air comes into contact with either colder air or a colder surface, the air is unable to retain the same amount of moisture and the water is released to form condensation in the air or on the surface. Condensation is generally noticeable where it forms on non-absorbent surfaces (i.e. windows or tiles) but it can form on any surface and it may not be noticed until black mould growth occurs.
The solutions that Dry Safe offer include: the installation of positive pressure ventilation units, the installation of extractor fans to kitchens and bathrooms, the application of mould washes and anti-mould paint and the installation of passive air vents.  All in a bid to help with your condensation problem.
