As a homeowner you always want to ensure your home is fully protected from potential damage, especially damp and moisture. As soon as these deadly elements strike you will be hit with ever growing costs and potential health risks. If you have never heard of sub-floor ventilation then here are a few things you should know.
Sub floor ventilation is becoming a vital aspect of many buildings so that moisture doesn’t begin to damage your brickwork and flooring. If you’re living in a property with a suspended wooden floor that sits above an empty air space between the perimeter walls and ground, there is a risk of humidity building up over time. Over a prolonged period of time the combination of moisture and humidity causes the floor to rot from the underside.
You want to gain peace of mind and avoid this situation as much as possible so that you aren’t facing huge expenses as the problem exacerbates. A clever technique which involves airbricks being places in the wall makes the air flow much more free between the sub-floor void and the outside. It is recommended that an airbrick is inserted into the exterior leaf of the wall and as well as cutting through the interior. This incorporates a through wall cavity sleeve and maintains the air flow to the sub-floor void.
As soon as there is evidence of moisture and damp in your property, you and the other occupants are at risk of serious health issues and a big bill to fix the persistent issues. In this case prevention is always way better than cure. Giving a house better ventilation systems will prevent moist and damp air from taking over the property. Your home might be at extreme risk due to the location of your property too. Many areas in the UK need this type of ventilation to reduce naturally occuring, dangerous gases such as radon and methane.
