Five Tips to Prevent Damp

Damp can easily become a real problem and be expensive to repair. Here are five great tips to help prevent damp from causing damage to your building. 

1. Look for problem areas

Look around the house for possible problem areas. This can be a crack in a wall or a blockage. Anything that can lead to damp penetrating your walls. Look for watermarks as these can indicate damp penetrating through your walls already.

2. Inspect your walls regularly

Look for any signs of damp on your walls. Also feel if your walls are damp to the touch. This can be an early sign of a water leakage that can cause damp. To help prevent this you can do a few things. This includes using ceiling fans in your bathroom and kitchen. You can also make use of a humidifier or a climate control system. 

3. Look for watermarks on interior walls

If there are damp patches climbing up your wall from the ground, it indicates moisture. This leads to damp that can damage your walls significantly. You can install damp proofing products, which you can get from a professional installer. This will prevent damp from rising up and causing problems.

4. Do you have an old property?

Old properties or those in predisposed areas can easily suffer from damp. If your building is more than 100 years old, it can be very susceptible to damp. This is because the walls, piping and fittings are very old and likely worn. It might also not have any damp proofing installed. 

5. Find a damp specialist

When you have any damp issues, find a damp specialist in your area. This can help you to damp proof your home or to fix existing damp problems easily.
