Damp is caused by excess moisture that can’t escape. Rising damp in basements or ground floors, leaking pipes or rain dripping through broken frames or slates in roofs can cause this moisture in buildings. Damp can occur in all types of homes, whether new or old and can be categorised into penetrating damp or rising damp, depending on the cause.
Damp proof paint will work if it is used correctly. It is a stronger and more resistant paint and is used in homes or properties that have excess moisture in them. Although, If damp already exists in your home then damp proof paint will just mask it. It is only made to resist surface moisture, it won’t stop the damp developing in your home. It is also important to note that it has to be applied properly in order to work.
There are various key ways you can prevent damp in your home or property. Firstly, by keeping on top of outdoor maintenance, this involves checking the roof regularly for any damage, keeping gutters clear and generally checking the exterior of the property to ensure there is no crumbling or visible damage. Keeping your home well ventilated and warm will also help to prevent damp developing within your home.
