  • Burnham Fellows road entrance on 27 April
  • Bray Adelaide Road entrance on 29 April

Damp and condensation

Chalcots condensation online form

Please fill in the above form to request an inspection for your property. We will respond to you within two working days. Please follow the guidance below on how to prevent and treat condensation.

Keeping your home free from damp and condensation leaflet is your first point of reference in dealing with damp and condensation in your property, please read it carefully and apply each step. 

Condensation tends to appear on cold surfaces and places where there is little or no movement in the air, for example in the corners of rooms near windows or behind cupboards and wardrobes.

Preventing condensation

  • Mop and wipe up any condensation, everyday.
  • Use the thermostat to control your heating – it will help you to heat your home more evenly, using low level heating all day, rather than quick blasts.
    This should also reduce your heating bills.
  • Ventilate your home.
  • Do not put wardrobes against colder external walls.
  • Dry clothes outside or at a launderette – do not dry clothes on radiators
