How Do I Prevent Damp?
You can help to prevent damp in your property by following a few simple steps.
Check Your Rainwater Goods
Blocked guttering, broken downpipes can empower water to keep running against the structure of your home, which after some time can prompt penetrating dampness, so be sure to clear out leaves/dirt debris, ensure the drains that your downpipes run into are not blocked and repair or replace any items that are not in good condition.
Carry Out External Wall Repairs
Check your external wall surfaces for any cracks in pointing/render, areas where external render may have come away or bricks which have blown, leaving a rough/porous surface and repair or replace as necessary to prevent water ingress. Areas where external paintwork has deteriorated or brickwork has become porous can be treated with an external water-repellent solution, contact us for further details.
