Managing damp in Kent properties
Kent is home to around 1.85 million people and there are a wide range of commercial and residential properties in the region. From modern new-builds to traditional properties, damp and dry rot can cause damage in any type of home.
When left untreated, damp can spread and cause further structural damage that will be much more expensive to fix. Living in a damp property is also bad for your health and can lead to help problems, particularly for the very young and very old. Damp properties are also more difficult to heat, which can increase your energy bills.
To help avoid the negative effects of damp, Tapco HomeDry offers comprehensive damp surveys and treatment that will find the root cause of the problem and provide solutions to restore your property.
