Moisture rises from around the perimeter of a building due to poor drainage. In addition to water collecting because of poor drainage, condensation may result when proper damp proofing measures have not been taken. If the air outside is very warm, but the surface of the building is quite cold and your wall isn’t properly insulated or the temperature of the walls varies greatly due to the building being occupied part – time and heated and cooled at intervals, condensation will result. This can also happen around the base of interior walls on the ground floor of a building.
