If you have an older property, it is important to keep an eye out for signs of damp, moisture or timber rot. Whilst these can also be a problem in newer properties, older properties, especially converted structures, can be prone to these problems. If you suspect that you have a damp or timber rot problem in your Dorset property, do not wait. Taking action could be just what you need to protect your home and prevent the problem getting worse. By acting early, you could save yourself a lot of stress and unexpected costs in the future.
Fortunately, =Bio-Kil= are available to help. They are the best damp proofing and timber specialist Dorset has to offer. Here are the top five hints and suggestions if you think that you have a problem with damp, moisture or rot in your property.
1) Contact =Bio-Kil= straight away to arrange a visit
The most important step is to get expert advice. As the leading damp proofing and timber specialist Dorset homeowners can rely on, =Bio-Kil= are specialists in identifying the cause of the problem and taking action to solve it. Rather than making educated guesses about your property, get an accurate, professional assessment so that you know what you are dealing with.
2) Check carefully for signs of damp on the walls, including behind furniture
As it develops, damp and moisture in the walls may cause staining or patches of mould. Additionally, wallpaper may bubble or peel and paint may crack. Remember that this could be happening behind wardrobes and bookcases, so if it safe to do so and someone can help you to avoid injuries, look behind your furniture for damp patches.
3) Move any pictures or paintings off the wall you suspect to be damp
If you suspect there is a problem, make sure that art and photos are taken down, otherwise they may become damaged.
4) Look if there are any obvious causes of damp in the wall
For example, is the guttering blocked and overflowing, or have plants grown up against the wall outside of where the damp is? This could be a cause of damp.
5) Take photographs on a regular basis
Instead of trying to remember how the suspected damp patch was, why not use your phone to take regular photos so that you can see if a stain on the wall is spreading? This could help you to assess the problem.
