Tips to Get Rid of Dampness in Your House 



Safeguard the Most Dampness Prone Areas of Your House with Expert Dampproofing Solutions

Buying or building the house of your dreams comes with a lot of responsibilities. As a homeowner, you are responsible for managing and maintaining your home in good condition. And one of the most common problems faced by most households is dampness. Dampness is the presence of excess moisture in the structure of your house due to ambient climatic conditions such as heavy rains, or excessive humidity.

Typically dampness occurs due to condensation inside the house, or an intrusion from outside. In any case, continuous dampness can pose a serious threat to the structural integrity of your house, and can even compromise the health of your family in the long run. Dampness needs to be tackled while it is still at its roots. This can be done by identifying and dampproofing the most dampness-prone areas of your house.

Do not know which parts of your house are most prone to dampness? Worry not, for we have got you covered! In this article, we have listed parts of your house that are at a greater risk of moisture retention, along with smart solutions to tackle dampness! So let’s get started!


Most Dampness Prone Areas of your House

Damp rooms which become breeding grounds for molds and fungus, can not only ruin your expensive interiors but also pose serious health problems for your family. Thus, it is important to damp-proof your entire house. But before that, it is important to identify the most dampness-prone areas of your house. So without any further ado, let's address the elephant in the room.

Here are the most dampness-prone areas of your house - 


Exterior Walls

As your building ages, along with prolonged exposure to heat, rains, and sun, the exteriors of your house start to develop cracks, and the plaster starts to loosen. During the rainy season, things can worsen, as water can now seep in through the cracks, and collect in the inner pores, making its way into the interiors of your house. This leads to the peeling of paints, molds, and mildew.

Terrace, Roof, and Ceiling

Uncovered roofs and terraces can accumulate a lot of rainwater during the monsoon season. Moreover, if the outlets are clogged, or if a damp-proof paint for the roof is not used, the concrete underneath it can be distressed. Furthermore, atmospheric changes can lead to deep cracks and troughs throughout the terrace and slopes. So it is best to consult a dampproofing expert for smart and effective solutions!

Bathroom is one the most dampness-prone areas of your house because that is where the most amount of water is used. Moreover, since all the water supply lines lead here, you are likely to experience dampness around sinks, faucets, and toilets. However, water leaks in the bathroom can seep into the adjoining room, leading to ugly paint peels, and damp walls.
