How Damp Affects Your Property in Wolverhampton
Damp is a real problem affecting properties in Wolverhampton. There are three forms of damp that can cause damage to your property which is condensation, rising damp and penetrating damp.
There is a question that is often asked by our customers and that is “Can damp and mould affect my health?” according to the NHS The simple answer is yes. If your property is suffering from damp, there can be the issue of respiratory problems, asthma and allergies and it can even cause problems to the immune system.
Having health issues from dampness is one outcome but if you leave damp untreated for a long period of time your building could suffer from serious structural damage.
This is because damp can lead to more harmful issues such as dry rot which can be much more difficult to treat and can spread throughout the property.
If you spot any signs of damp or mould, make sure you contact one of our Wolverhampton damp proofing specialists as soon as possible. This will ensure that the damp and timber problem is not only treated efficiently but also prevented from causing further problems in the future.
How Damp Proofing is Carried Out?
Diagnosing where the moisture has originated from is an important part of the damp proofing process. Condensation is caused by people carrying out day to day activities.
This is because when residents in their property either cook or dry clothes inside, the warm moisture-laden air can’t evaporate, so will instead land on a cold surface such as a window or wall.
The most efficient method of treating condensation in your Wolverhampton property is improving the ventilation. This can be achieved by adding ventilation fans in the areas where warm air tends to occur such as in bathrooms or kitchens.
Rising damp usually occurs within the older properties, this is down to the fact the properties pre 1950s properties in Wolverhampton may not have a damp proof course installed or the damp proofing has become damaged over time.
Depending on the type of property, the technician can apply a variety of damp proofing methods to protect your property from rising damp. If the building is made out of brickwork then a pressure injection will be implemented, however, if the building is constructed with stone an electro-osmosis system will be applied.
Penetrating damp is a form of damp that is caused by the owner maintaining the property to a poor standard. Moisture finds its way through the into the inner walls of the building from blocked rainwater goods or broken pipes.
One form of damp proofing treatment that can be used is Timberwise’s WeatherTek. This is advanced mason protection is used to provide a water repellent barrier.
