Are you always sick? Perhaps you have a cough that won’t go away or a skin rash you just can’t seem to get rid of. Did you know that damp and mould growth in your home is bad for your health?
When you inhale fragments of mould or spores, it inflames the airways which can cause coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, throat irritation and nasal congestion. Prolonged exposure to mould can even reduce lung function and cause chronic diseases like asthma.
Now that you know that damp can affect your health, how do you know if you have damp and mould in your home?
Below are the most common signs to look out for:
- Brown/dark patches on the walls, floors or furniture
- Peeling paint and water stains on walls
- Frequent condensation on the walls or windows
- Musty smell
- Salt stains on exterior walls
If you see any of these around the house you need to act fast.
Treating damp and mould is a job better left for the professionals. First, you need to strip the wall. Then you need to drill holes, fill them with a damp proof course and wait for it to dry. The next step is preparing the wall with primer and then comes the paint. As you can see, the process is quite involved so don’t expect a quick DIY to fix your damp problem.
