There is always some moisture in the air, even if you can’t see it. If warm air gets cold, it cannot hold all the moisture produced by everyday activities and some of this moisture appears as tiny droplets of water. It’s most noticeable on windows on a cold morning.

This is condensation.

Look for condensation in your home. It can appear on or near windows, in corners and in or behind wardrobes and cupboards. Condensation forms on cold surfaces and places where there is little movement of air and will sit on the surface, whereas damp would penetrate deeper than the surface.
