When all is said and done, family is an essential aspect of our lives, which is why Family Day, on Monday 24 September, should be treated as one of the most important days in the calendar. Home is where the heart is, but if home is also where damp resides, it’s time to call in a London damp proofing company.
Home should be where we feel most comfortable, allowing us to relax in the company of our loved ones. Memories should be the only thing that builds up over time in your home, but it is all too common for damp issues to build up alongside the good times.
Damp patches, mould and other signs slowly form over time without you ever really realising. It might only be when you look back on pictures taken of your family at home that you notice mould spores residing on your windows and walls.
What to Do When You First Notice Damp
As soon as you notice the first sign of damp in the family home you need to take action. It can be easy to put damp to the back of your mind, but the reality is that an untreated damp infestation brings the possibility of serious damage to your home.
Rooms that see regular heat and running water, such as the kitchen and bathroom, are most likely to show signs of condensation, while other forms of damp such as rising damp, dry and wet rot and woodworm may not be so obvious. Make sure to check humid areas of the property, such as the basement and loft, as this is where signs of structural damage are most likely to appear. If damage to timber beams isn’t picked up on soon enough, the damage could be irreversible.
