Do you wake up in the morning to find your windows as wet as if you were washing them? Condensation on bedroom windows is a common issue, but a property expert has now revealed an easy method to tackle the problem.
The health risks of ignoring condensation
According to a property expert from the TikTok account @thatpropertyguy, the reason for the condensation is simple:
"The breath at night collects on the cold surface of the window."
But why is it essential to remove it? Untreated condensation can quickly lead to mold, posing a health risk.
Preventive measures and quick fixes
While many focus on cleaning and removing condensation, prevention is equally important. When cooking, it's advisable to use lids on pots and pans to prevent moisture from entering the home, which ultimately helps reduce condensation.
The expert also recommends wiping off condensation as soon as you see it to prevent damage to the windowsill.
Tips to limit condensation
To minimize the condensation issue, you can open a window or get a dehumidifier. Additional tips shared in the comments under the expert's video include:
"Most windows have ventilation openings at the top or bottom. These should always be open to ensure passive ventilation."
"Triple-glazed windows are the best solution if you need to replace your windows."
"Get plants that thrive in high humidity. It helps."
