Preventing condensation in the kitchen

The kitchen is another area in the home that generates a lot of excess humidity. Cooking creates water vapour that condenses on walls and windows, over time this may lead to the appearance of mildew and dampness on tile grout and window mouldings. The kitchen ceiling suffers from the excess humidity and may develop cracks and the plaster may break. The effects of this are more evident in winter since the exterior temperature is much lower than the temperature inside the house. In the kitchen, changes in temperature can be very pronounced and deterioration may be much more evident than in other places in the home.

Proper ventilation and extraction of hot air loaded with water vapour are critical for maintaining optimal humidity levels in the kitchen. Using a dehumidifier helps to keep the humidity level in check. Appliances will also benefit from these suggestions since excess humidity can lead to premature deterioration and rusting of metal parts. For unpleasant refrigerator odours we offer a very efficient odour absorber that uses activated charcoal. Using these suggestions you can have a kitchen that is free of damp and unpleasant odours.
