Condensation control specialists in Southend and Chelmsford

Condensation Control

We provide condensation control solutions within the Southend and Chelmsford area.

Condensation can cause structural damage to your property, and can pose a potentially serious health hazard. We understand that you require a permanent solution to the possible health risk and structural issues of damp, rot and condensation.

What causes condensation

Condensation is water contained in the air, which converts (or condenses) from being a gas to a liquid when the air in the room comes into contact with a cold surface such as a wall or window glass. The amount of condensation that is generated depends on how moist the air is and how cold the surfaces in the room are.

Often, condensation is short-lived – such as that which occurs in bathrooms and kitchens because of the steamy atmosphere. Longer-term condensation can however arise in unheated rooms where air movement is restricted. These factors are largely controlled by the activities of the occupier and the way in which the house or flat is constructed. The effect of condensation may also be more pronounced in winter, because the building structure is cold and because windows are not opened as frequently to let the moist air out.

Since 2004, mould has been classed as a Category 1 risk to health as assessed under the Health and Safety Hazards Rating System (HHSRS) – the same class as asbestos. Landlords, councils and housing associations are legally bound to clear any outbreak under section 11 of the Landlord and Tenant Act, 1998.

How can we help

We can survey your property and offer guaranteed solutions to your condensation problems. Whatever your issue may be and whether you are in a house or flat, the concept is to introduce fresh, filtered air into the dwelling at a continuous rate, encouraging the movement of air from inside to outside.

If your property has a loft we can install a Nuaire Drimaster. The Drimaster 2000 provides whole-home ventilation using the Positive Input Ventilation principle.

If you have a flat without a loft space we can install a Flatmaster 2000 unit, which works in the same way.

We also offer a range of fans to suit bathrooms and kitchens.

    I can't recommend this firm enough. They are extremely competitive and their professionalism is second to none which was the reason they were recommended to us. To add, our particular project was time sensitive and had it not been for Romana Ltd's service to us we would have incurred costs from other associated trades.

    Romana provide an outstanding service: quick to respond to an initial query, quick to attend and view/asses the work, very prompt, detailed & accurate quote provided, they don’t quote for work you don’t need, unlike other builders that would be happy to rip you off, competitive pricing, honest & reliable & friendly staff. I can’t rate them highly enough. They have been an absolute pleasure to work with. You can’t overestimate that enough in this day and age.

    Paul from Romana visited my parent's property to inspect for possible rising damp, as they had damp floorboards in their kitchen. He ascertained quickly that this did not appear to be the case, and gave comprehensive advice on what steps we should take to resolve the issue. A really pleasant and helpful person, and highly recommended.

    Simon Willis

    Great reliable company with really friendly staff. We had the ground floor of our house completely damp proofed and re-plastered and the work was carried out to a high standard. Would definitely recommend.

    Amanda Sutton

    Romana Ltd attended our property this week to repair a damp wall and install proper drainage outside our property. The end result is amazing and I'm so pleased with the work that has been carried out and to a high standard. The workmen were lovely too. Highly recommend.
