Dampness can originate from:
- Leaking Pipes, waste, drainage, and overflows.
- Rain water from defective roof coverings, blocked or leaking gutters and broken pipes.
- Penetrating dampness around windows, through walls and due to raised ground levels.
- Rising damp due to lack of, or no effective, damp proof course.
Condensation Dampness is a condition that affects many homes and has probably
become the major cause of "environmental" dampness within a property. Condensation
is particularly common in homes which are poorly heated and poorly insulated which
usually gets worse in the colder winter months i,e. "the condensation season".
