One of the best methods of damp course, is by tackling the problem before damp has had a chance to occur. This is often easier said than done, but to tackle an existing problem, it’s crucial to pinpoint the overall cause of damp problems, which in most causes is poor ventilation.
This is especially a dilemma with older properties, where it has become a trend to block up old fireplaces, and replacing windows with double glazed ones which removes the opportunity for ventilation. However, there has also been a big rise in products, within the home, that cause condensation such as showers and even driers, which can cause a build-up of mould.
The answer to this problem is to create ventilation, to allow air to flow more freely around the home so as to eradicate bacteria.
