How Dampness Affects Your Home

High moisture levels within a house can cause damage to the interior e.g. paintwork, wallcoverings, curtains, floors etc. The resulting dampness also promotes the growth of mold causing further damage as well as creating a health hazard .

Moisture absorbed into insulating materials reduces their effectiveness, resulting in increased energy costs. Moisture can also promote the rapid deterioration of the building materials, potentially reducing the life cycle of the building.
