During the chilly months running up to Christmas, many of us suffer from colds with symptoms including stuffy noses, coughing and sore throats. However, sometimes, these typical signs can also be the result of damp in your home.
If you’re living in London and suffering these symptoms but aren’t convinced it’s a simple cold, check for issues of damp in your home – especially important if you suffer from asthma. If you’re concerned, invest in damp proofing in London and get the help of specialists.
In winter, the most common form of damp is caused by condensation – you”ll see water droplets on walls near windows and if it has been there long enough, even mould. Once the problem is identified, it can be solved to the benefit of you and your families health, as well as protecting your walls and furniture.
Once you’ve had damp and mould in your home, you’re hardly going to want it again, so get damp proofing with a long term guarantee, then next winter all you have to worry about is what to get the kids for Christmas. Sounds better all-round doesn’t it?
While the specialists check for damp caused by condensation, make sure they also check for rising damp, lateral penetrating damp and rain penetration, which could also be affecting your health.
