What is Damp?

It is a problem that can affect any home no matter how large or small, damp is miserable to live with and a threat to health if left untreated.

It’s not surprising that damp is a big issue for many households thanks to the nation’s climate with the wettest part of the UK, the Western Highlands in Scotland, getting over three metres of rainfall per year.

Many cases of damp are not as serious as they look, however, damp can have a detrimental effect on our health especially if you suffer from respiratory problems or asthma.  If left, damp could lead to the appearance of mould and structural damage (depending on the type of damp), swift action will save you time, money and safeguard your health.

There are three main types of damp:

  • Rising damp
  • Penetrating damp
  • Condensation damp
