This Is What Happens When You Ignore Your Damp Problem

Too many homeowners and renters ignore seemingly minor issues on their property. A small leak might be a sign of something bigger and a musty smell isn’t something you can cure by simply adding air fresheners.

Similar to our bodies, we have to look beyond the symptoms and look for the root cause of the problem. By ignoring it, you are guaranteed to have a bigger problem on hand when you let time pass. If you ignore your damp problem, for example, one or more of the following will happen.

Chronic Health Issues

Damp in your home is the primary cause of mould growth. While mould might seem harmless, other than the fact that it’s unsightly, it’s really making you sick. That’s right! Coughing, wheezing, eye and skin irritations are all symptoms of mould growth. In fact, if you don’t do something about the mould growth, you could end up with asthma, or even worse, lung failure.

Ruined Furniture, Walls and Floors

Nothing frustrates me more than having to replace things I already had. Mould ruins your furniture and floors while leaving stains on your walls. Your paint might even peel and leave you with a big eyesore. Ignoring your damp problem will cost you money you might not have.

Decreased Property Value

If your property is riddled with damp and mould growth, do you think potential buyers would be interested in making an offer? Definitely not if it means they have to fork out extra money because you ignored a big problem like damp. They might wonder what else have you neglected on your property.
