Protecting Your Preston Property Against Damp
Damp is a common problem in Preston with a higher average rainfall compared to areas across the UK. Even in the dry months Preston still has a lot of rain. With a lot of rainfall, issues such as woodworm, dry rot and black spot mould can occur from this.
It is important to have preventative measures in place to stop damp and timber problems from occurring. Having damp treatments such as damp proof course or a cavity drainage membrane can help stop damp from rising or penetrating the walls of your building.
Having rising damp in your property in Preston usually occurs due to a damaged damp proof course which affects older properties. A damp proof course acts as a horizontal barrier to stop moisture passing through it. When new properties are being built a damp proof course is usually put in place by the building contractor.
Condensation affects many properties across in the Preston area and all types of housing. The most common cause of condensation is poor ventilation in the property. Condensation is the process of the warm moisture-laden air comes into contact with a cold surface e.g. window.
Day to day activities such as cooking and drying clothes indoors, contribute to warm moisture in your home, so if your home isn’t fully ventilated then condensation is a likely outcome of this.
