Hi Stoneyboy + others,
I own a first floor flat which has a pretty big problem with air circulation and condensation and has the full 5 years I've lived here. I've muddled by without any dramatic side effects until noticing in the past 3 months little circles of moisture appearing on an exterior facing wall in the bedroom which has the biggest condensation issues.
I've had a builder out to take a look and I'm waiting for him to report back to my factors on the likelihood of damp rather than just a visible affect of the condensation but in the meantime bought a dehumidifier to help with always present condensation issue.
I was just wondering how long the dehumidifier would take to have an effect? and would it likely cause the specs to dry out (assuming its the condensation causing them) or should I be putting up lining paint and doing a spot of redecorating.
thanks for the help, really nice website.
