We have a condensation/ black spot build up issue around a plug socket in one of our bedrooms. It’s in an external, plaster board wall at the side of a wardrobe - not much ventilation and black spot has built up quite badly here - we’ve treated this and know we need to look at ventilation and insulation of the wall too.
We have been looking at insulating around the socket and came across Instaabox, as well as various tapes and advice about using building foam and caulk.
Being electrics, we know certain fixes to insulate will need an electrician - We’d like to keep it simple and safe within the limits of what a sensible non electrician can do - (we do know how to wire a plug and turn off the mains electricity to isolate lights from sockets etc).
Does anyone have any experience to share about safely insulating plug sockets, best materials ??
Could the Coop create a DIYERS workshop on how to use insulation tapes etc
