Damp proofing is important in preventing moisture decay. It is a long-term solution and it prevents moisture and water from entering interior space. When a property is built, protection is installed into the base of its walls to form a barrier, which stops the moisture from coming through the wall. If you are noticing patches of moisture around your property, these barriers have not been correctly installed, and it is important that you get this fixed sooner rather than later. Incorrect installation of moisture barriers can cause problems such as peeling wallpaper, patches on your ceiling or walls, and musty smells. Your rooms will start to feel cold and mould will appear in the winter months due to the ever-changing room temperature.
It is important that you protect your property, because when damp patches start to form, mould will soon follow. This can seriously impact your living conditions and start to take effect on your household, causing breathing problems. Many respiratory problems can have links with household damp. If you already suffer with your breathing, the poor atmosphere in your home will worsen the symptoms. Fixing these issues can go a long way in controlling or eliminating the problems from your home permanently.
