Rising Damp Treatment Canberra
Does your home need rising damp treatment in Canberra? If you do not know the answer to this question, then you need to understand how rising damp can cause problems and why it is important to prevent it.
Excess moisture building up on walls and ceilings in your home can lead to the growth of moulds, fungi and bacteria, exposure to which can be clinically associated with respiratory symptoms, allergies, and asthma.
Damp can affect any home no matter how large or small. If left untreated it can be a very real threat to health. It could lead to the appearance of mould and structural damage (depending on the type of damp). However, prompt action will save you time and money, and safeguard your health.
Rising damp only happens at ground floor levels as the moisture drawn up the wall comes from the soil in the ground. Decaying skirting boards, crumbling plaster, and tide marks on walls all identify a possible problem with rising damp.
If left untreated, this floor moisture may result in mould and mildew. Mould is a recognised allergen and irritant, which releases tiny spores that can travel in the air. These spores often have micro toxins and allergens attached to them and have been identified as a trigger for respiratory problems such as asthma, flu, and fatigue. Mould gradually digests and destroys whatever it grows on.
As this moisture is under the floor, the problem may remain unnoticed until it has caused serious health problems and has cost you a lot in repairs, etc. Preventing dampness under the home or fixing it early will keep you and your family healthy.
This is why rising damp treatment in Canberra is absolutely critical. Why let these problems ruin your life when with just one phone call to Homevent you can have one of their technicians call ‘round, professionally assess your home, and recommend relevant solutions to your problem.
