Five steps on how to stop damp problems

To help stop damp problems, simply follow the "five R's":

  • Regular maintenance. Check and clean out gutters, down pipes and seal any leaking joints.
  • Regular inspections. Have a competent person inspect the property approx every two years for signs of water ingress.
  • Rapid action. As soon as you detect a damp problem, deal with it quickly. The longer you leave it the more costly the damp problem will become.
  • Remove moisture out of the building. Use vents in bath rooms, above cookers etc preferably Humidistat controlled. This helps to prevent condensation problems.
  • Renew bath and shower seals on a regular basis.
