Why it can be a risk
Damp isn't just a problem on your floors, walls and ceilings, it can also be dangerous to your health. This is due to the mould spores which can become airborne in your home or property, causing allergies and skin irritations.
The most at risk of being impacted by these spores include babies, young children and the elderly as they're more susceptible to developing irritation and allergies to these mould spores. Additionally, people with existing allergies and health issues such as asthma, may also be impacted by the presence of mould. This is why it's so important to ensure everyone lives free of damp or mouldy living conditions.
As well as mould impacting your health, damp can also present structural problems within your homes or property that could require major works and disruption.
It can also impact a person's mental health as it presents another issue to deal with and impacts on living in a warm, safe and comfortable place.
