23 May The Many Ways of Preventing Damp Problems in Your Home
Having dampness in your home is both bad for the structural integrity of your property as well as bad for the health of you and your family.
By taking some advice on board and following a few easy steps, we can help you prevent dampness in your home.
Use a Dehumidifier
By utilising a dehumidifier, you are literally taking water out of the air, which keeps it from entering cracks in your walls or settling as condensation, which creates mould.
If you have an older roof that’s partly leaking and causing you hassle, it’s always a good idea to get it fixed as soon as possible. When you fix the problem early on, it saves you money in the long run and can reduce the risk of airborne bacteria, keeping you and your family safe from illness.
Talk to a Professional
There are many ways that our qualified professionals can fix damp problems. Most modern homes are built with a damp proof layer whether that be plastic or slate, to retain water. If there was a fault in this layer or it has decayed over time, professionals can generally remedy this situation and get things back to right working order.
What may seem pretty harmless to many, leaving dampness untreated can end up causing a considerable amount of damage to the structural foundation of any property. By contacting a professional company like ours, we can accurately diagnose any problem or remedy a preventative measure to keep things in top working order.
