Damp in houses is often caused by excess moisture within the property which leads to condensation on walls which in turn leads to damp in your home. The condensation can be caused by anything from cooking to showering to drying clothes inside when there is a lack of ventilation within the property. This can be prevented in a number of ways including:
Putting lids on pots while cooking and boiling water
Opening windows for 10-15 minutes each morning
Ensure your home is both well insulated and ventilated
When showering, turn on a fan, close the bathroom door or open a window, this will prevent moisture from spreading throughout your home.
While these are all ways to effectively prevent excess moisture in your home, if damp has already appeared in your home it must be treated and removed to prevent any damage to your home and health. Other kinds of damp are not always as easy to prevent, check out this blog article for more tips on what you can do to reduce the risk of damp in your home.
