What is Condensation and How Does it Form?
However, before we explain all that, we first want to define condensation. So what is condensation and what causes condensation? Basically it is when water, which is already in the air, settles on a colder surface and makes it damp or wet. Over time this moisture can lead to damage by peeling paint off windows, and walls.
