With the amount of attention paid to keeping our homes free from damp issues, it can be easy to forget about the place where you actually spend most of your day – the office. The average worker will spend 40 hours a week in the office, which makes ensuring your workspace is clear of any issues a priority.
In the capital, there are thousands of offices – many of which would benefit from a visit from a London damp proofing company. Workers deserve the best environment possible in order to keep motivation and productivity levels high, as well as to keep your business moving forward.
The Cost of Damp
Imagine you are a prospective client that has arrived at a potential supplier’s office. As you walk in, instead of a well-maintained space, you are greeted by infested walls, mould growing on surfaces and the unmistakable musty smell that accompanies damp. It does not make the right impression and you would be unlikely to choose to work with that company.
Don’t allow your building to be the downfall of your business. Offices can suffer from terrible like any home, only the implications can be far greater. Instead of one family, potentially hundreds of people will be coming into contact with damp on a daily basis.
A Well Ventilated Office is a Happy Office
No doubt your workers and colleagues will have had the windows wide open this summer as the United Kingdom endured one of the hottest summers in recent memory. As the temperature begins to drop, however, it can be very tempting to keep the office closed up to prevent the warmth escaping.
However, what your workers and colleagues are actually doing, is prohibiting moisture in the air from escaping the building. Any reputable damp proofing company in London will tell you that, in big office blocks with numerous workers, the autumn and winter months are the most common time of the year for damp issues to rear their ugly heads.
