Understanding how to stop condensation on windows is important for several reasons. Firstly, water running down your windows is just not a good look, but it is also a cause of damp, mould and mildew in a home. It can also cause damage to your window frames and cills, as well as your walls.

Window condensation occurs when any excess moisture hanging around in the air in your home condenses on the inside of windows.
