In many cases, a problem with damp can be due to poor maintenance and can start to appear on your internal walls, ceilings and chimney breasts.
There are three main causes of damp problems within the home, all of which can be prevented and remedied through careful planning. The most common cause of damp problems in the home is condensation dampness which is caused by elevated humidity levels and moisture in the air.
Unfortunately the majority of the moisture in our homes is created through the body with the average human losing around 8 pints of water in a 12 hour period which makes it difficult to completely prevent a build up of moisture in the home.
Excess moisture that builds up on walls and ceilings in your home can also lead to the growth of moulds, fungi and bacteria, which subsequently emit spores and volatile organic compounds into the indoor air.
Exposure to condensation damp and mould growth is clinically associated with respiratory symptoms, allergies, asthma and immunological reactions. Dampness has therefore been suggested to be a strong and consistent indicator of risk for asthma and respiratory problems.
The good news is that we can eliminate damp problems in your home. Surprisingly, it is easy to resolve once you have identified the problem areas within the home and ruled out any issues with rising or penetrating damp.
