How do I know if my property is affected

What kind of damp is affecting my home?

 

Rising damp, penetrating damp and condensation are the three most common types of damp that can affect your home. Each needs to be treated in different ways.

 

Condensation

You may notice water droplets on windows or walls, see dark mould appearing and/or notice an unpleasant smell.

 

Rising damp

If you have rising damp, you may notice damaged skirting boards and floorboards, crumbling or salt stained plaster and peeling paint and wallpaper. There may also be a tide mark along the wall.

 

Penetrating damp

Penetrating damp often shows up through damp patches on walls, ceilings or floors, which may darken when it rains. You’re more likely to get penetrating damp if you live in an older building with solid walls, as cavity walls provide some protection

What can i do about Damp?

No one wants to live in a damp home. Damp can cause mould on walls and furniture and cause wooden window frames to rot. It's also unhealth, but we can help, whether you have condensation, rising damp or penetrating damp.

 

How you treat damp depends on the type that's affecting your home. If you have more than one kind, the solution will be more complicated. There are several steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of condensation becoming a problem, however they may not be practical all of the time:

 

Avoid drying clothes inside on radiators or in front of fires.

When cooking - cover pans, don't leave kettles boiling and use an extractor fan to remove excess moisture if possible.

Ventilate bathrooms and kitchens, keeping doors closed when they are in use.

Try to maintain a constant low level background heating, helping to ensure no rapid temperature changes and keeping wall surfaces warm.

These tips may provide a short term solution to your condensation problems but for a more comprehensive and permanent elimination of condensation throughout your home, book a survey or call us on 01206 912414
