What effect does damp have on my home?
Because damp is often a slow-working problem, by the time you notice it and get in contact with damp proofers it can have already caused significant problems to your property. This goes beyond what you can see with your naked eye. Damp affects the internal structure of your wall: as moisture is absorbed, material can gradually break down, especially softer materials such as plaster. You might notice plaster begin to crack or crumble as a result of damp.
It also leads to problems with keeping your home warm. Damp walls lose their insulating properties, resulting not just in a struggle to keep the heat in, but also putting colder air into your space. You might find you’re using more energy, and therefore spending more money, to heat your home – and with less effect.
Damp can cause problems for people’s health too. Not only do colder homes affect health, but damp leads to more moisture in the air. When this is inhaled, it can affect people’s respiratory systems. Damp is known to cause asthma, particularly in children and adolescents, which can stay for life.
Damp homes are more susceptible to the growth of mould. Fungal microbes need a damp environment in order to grow so if your Tadcaster home needs damp proofing, you might notice an increased amount of mould on walls, ceilings or even in your cupboards. Black mould, in particular, can cause serious health problems including wheezing, coughing, itchy eyes, fatigue and headaches. (Find out more about how damp and mould can affect your health.)
Allerton Damp Proofing tackle both rising and penetrating damp, among other associated services – including the treatment of woodworm and condensation. If you want to improve your home and protect your health, then don’t hesitate: get in touch today.
I’VE FOUND DAMP; WHAT SHOULD I DO?
How much does damp proofing cost?
The cost of damp proofing in Tadcaster varies a lot according to your property and the extent of the damage already caused by the damp. If damp has spread through a large area, it will cost more to fix. When you get in touch with Allerton Damp Proofing, we’ll send over one of our qualified surveyors to look at your property and they will be able to provide you with an accurate quote. We’re not into hidden surprises, so we’ll always let you know the price before the work starts.
How long does damp proofing take?
The time it takes to complete damp proofing work is dependant upon the size of the project. Every home and building is different, but when you get a survey of your property we’ll provide you with an approximate time frame. We don’t want to waste your time or intrude on your space for longer than necessary, so always work to get the job done as quickly as possible without compromising on high-quality work. A small project can take as little as 2-5 days.
