How To Prevent Damp & Moisture
When it comes to damp, prevention is better than cure. There are a number of simple ways you can prevent the build up of damp and moisture within your home, such as ensuring appropriate ventilation is in place. During warmer weather, it is always a good idea to open windows to allow for air movement around each room. Proper circulation serves as a way for excess moisture to escape, lowering the risk of damp or mould building up. In the same way, it is also sensible to turn on your extraction fan whilst cooking in the kitchen to reduce the chances of condensation developing into heavy moisture.
Damp conditions tend to arise as the weather gets colder as households become less willing to leave their windows open. There are 3 main types of damp: rising, penetrating and condensation. Rising damp is relatively rare but can be helped by ensuring a damp proof course (DPC) has been installed in the lower walls of the property.
Penetrating damp is caused by structural problems, such as cracks in external walls or faulty pipes. Whilst it is advised that a professional be called to deal with this kind of damp, you can attempt to prevent it by regularly checking your gutters and pipes for any leaks or holes.
Condensation damp is the most common form of damp in the UK and is known for its rapid rate of growth. Keeping your home warm by fitting double-glazing windows and installing professional loft and wall insulation work well in the prevention of condensation damp. If your property is susceptible to excess moisture, you should opt for walls with painted surfaces.
