Condensation regularly forms on pipes with cold water. Also, it often does not disappear from them at all for many months and years. It is quite obvious that this state of affairs does not suit most of the owners. Fortunately, the problem can be solved on your own with a minimum of financial, time and energy costs.
The danger of condensation forming on pipes must not be underestimated. It is he who becomes the main source of dampness in the room. Together with such factors as the warmth of the air and the darkness around, dampness, in turn, leads to the appearance and subsequent spread of mold fungi throughout the technical or residential premises. It is definitely not worth saying that mold is dangerous to human health.
In order to solve this problem, one should first of all understand why condensate forms on pipes at all. Most often, the explanation for this phenomenon is extremely simple. If there is no direct leak in the pipe and there is some kind of water on it, then the temperature difference is to blame - the air around is much warmer than the water in the pipe and the pipe itself. This is what causes moisture condensation. Very often, the situation is complicated by the fact that in some houses, pipes with cold water run next to the ventilation.
It is impossible to defeat the high humidity in the room without defeating the condensation on the pipes. Fortunately, this problem is very easy to solve. All you need to do is insulate the pipes with cold water. This can be done both independently and with the help of a qualified plumber. It is best to insulate pipes with foamed polyethylene - a very affordable and at the same time quite effective tool.
On top of the first layer of insulation, it is recommended to make another one by wrapping the pipe with foam foam (the foil layer should look outward at the same time). If the humidity level does not drop or does not decrease enough, then you will also have to install an electric hood in the room, which will lead straight into the ventilation shaft.
