Condensation What is Condensation? Condensation is moisture in the air that comes into contact with a cold surface and then condenses from water vapour into a liquid again. It points to a problem in humidity levels in the home and a lack of adequate ventilation which in turn can lead to damage and mould growth Internal Condensation (on the inner pane of a window) Condensation inside your home points to high moisture levels and a lack of adequate ventilation.  New windows will have been manufactured to achieve a high efficiency and a tight sealed installation, due to this moisture can not escape so it aims for coldest part of the room which is the glass unit. Your old windows may not have produced as much or no condensation at all , this is due to the fact they were less air tight & energy efficient allowing air to pass from the inside to the outside without causing any condensation. Excess moisture can also appear from hot showers, boiling the kettle, cooking and drying wet washing. What can be done about it? Condensation can be reduced by allowing adequate ventilation such as opening slot vents and windows. Extractor fans are also  a good way of reducing excess moisture in bathroom and kitchens. External Condensation (on the outer pane of a window) Condensation appears externally due to the fact that modern windows are manufactured to be more thermally efficient. As a result, the heat will not be able to escape through the outer pane which then causes condensation to appear on the outer pane. The outer pane of the glass is cooler and when the temperature falls below the dew point, moisture in the air condenses on it. Unfortunately, nothing can be done for condensation on the outer pane. However it usually doesn’t last long and means that your windows are keeping the heat in within your house! Window condensation can be worse during a Autumn & Spring morning as at these times of the year the temperature of the glass can drop drastically overnight, yet the dew point remains relatively high. Some windows can be affected more than others as slight changes in orientation or shelter can mean that that windows or even panes next to each other can react differently.

Wood grain-look aluminium for your bi-fold doors Wood grain aluminium – how does that work? This is an innovative choice that offers the appeal of real wood without the bother of the maintenance, expansion or warping. The aluminium is powder coated as a base colour.

Cleaning and maintaining your bi-fold door frames Looking after your bi-fold doors and keeping the frames clean is a straightforward task – even if it is not your favourite chore! Normally you will simply need to give them a thorough wipe with a non-abrasive cloth using warm water and a mild detergent. Be careful with the powder coat finish though. A strong household cleaner could cause damage to the coating spoiling the sleek finish you love. As a general rule, more stubborn stains can be dealt with using a non-abrasive liquid cream cleaner or paraffin-based cleaning solution. Cleaning the tracks of your bi-fold doors It is important for the smooth running of your bi-fold doors that you keep the tracks free from stones and debris as these can cause damage. The easiest way is simply to run your vacuum cleaner nozzle. An accumulation of dirt can be cleaned away by running a cloth along the track. With some doors it can be a good idea to keep the tracks and mechanisms lubricated with a silicon spray. Check with your supplier to see if this advisable for your doors. If so, concentrate on the area where the wheel and guide disks meet the tracks to ensure on-going smooth running. If you find that the track has suffered real damage, your best option is to contact a professional to assess the situation. It might be something that they can fix or they might recommend replacing the damaged track. But please don’t tinker with it yourself. You could make an easily-fixed problem worse! Cleaning the glass of your bi-fold doors When you’ve invested in bi-fold doors to bring sunlight into your home, the last thing you want is to spoil that effect with streaky glass. Here are our tips for keeping your bi-fold doors sparkling: An eco-friendly 50/50 mixture of vinegar and water is a long-standing traditional way to clean glass for a reason. But it will leave a powerful smell of vinegar for a while so this might be one for a nice day when you can get some fresh air into the room. A mixture of soap and water is a common choice but don’t go overboard with the soap as the suds will leave a streaky residue on the glass. To avoid streaks your choice of cleaning tool is key. Microfibre cloths or squeegees are best for a streak-free effect. Try to avoid letting dirty water drip onto the frames. If it does, make sure you wipe it away fully. Sparkling clean windows need a smart, smear-free frame to off-set them.
