Hiring a professional to cure damp

Posted by Sachit Patel on March 22, 2011 (0 Comments)

Damping is a serious issue for any home and needs proper adherence for curing. Several factors contribute to damp which can be seen on walls, corners of rooms, roof, floors, windows and doors, pipe work, in and outside of a home. They make the appearance of the home shabby. Before the things goes out of your hand it’s highly important that you should consult with a professional who is completely engrossed in this profession. The main concern associated with damp is that its appearance on walls is unsightly and problematic which may lead to damage the finishing and fittings. Some professional guidance will be more preferable than hiring a remodeling contractor or buying a new home, as both going to consume money. Further, any home which is not getting proper look after may lead to damping. And if the condition persists then consequences can include damaged furnishings, expensive structural repairs, and in certain cases may affect your health also. 

Some of the symptoms and remedies of damp which a hired professional will guide you such as Loose flashing (remove broken bits with adhesive flashing patch), Cracked chimney stack or crumbling mortar (do repairing with mortar or sealant), damp chimney stack (require slating and ceiling at the top or adding ventilation bricks to enhance ventilation), Cracked walls (may allow rainwater so do repair with suitable filler), cracked or missing tiles on the roof(repair as soon as possible), damp patch on wall ( apply damp proof paint) etc. All these are recommended tips which one can generally apply to curb the serious effects of damping.
