How to Identify Dampness in Your Home

by | Jul 27, 2016 | Water Proofing

Damp is one issue that many homeowners find they commonly face in their homes, especially an older home. Damp does not make itself known straight away and takes time to show up in a home. However, when it does appear it becomes difficult because it can damage the structure of your home if left untreated and create health problems. Damp can show up in a variety of different ways. One of the most common ways for it to appear in your home is showing as a brown colour on the floor or wall where the water is penetrating. It can also start to show as paint peeling away from a wall where damp is coming through, or if you have wallpaper on a wall it will start to disintegrate due to the water in the wall. The musty smell is another indicator that you have a damp issue.

Professional Contractors Offer Damp Proofing Services

Hiring professional contractors that offer damp proofing services is your best option. You may have seen where the damp is, but you may not be able to locate where the leak is coming from. By having a contractor come to your home, they will examine the area and be able to pin point exactly where the leak is. The contractors will notice where the damp is on the walls by touching because damp feels cold to the touch. They also will look for discoloured spots on the floors, walls and ceilings while they are there. The timber and damp treatment services they provide are timber resin repairs, woodworm and rot treatment and rising damp control. Depending on what they find during the exploring of your home will vary on which service best fits into your needs. If they detect mould whether by smell or seeing it they will remove that as well because it can overtime become a health risk.
