Damp at home

Do you have damp at home? During the winter, low temperatures do not only affect people in the form of cold, but our homes can also be affected, especially those with damp problems. During these months it is more likely that buildings are more exposed to the effects of this problem and we must pay attention. This is not only an aesthetic issue, but can also affect the health of the people who live in these buildings. How? In the form of allergies, respiratory problems, bone problems…

For this reason, we should seek professional help and make sure we know what to do to improve the quality of the air inside our homes.

How does damp appear at home?

Our health suffers when the days are colder, as our defences are lower. Something similar happens to our homes, as excess ambient water can cause certain pathogens such as fungi and bacteria to appear and directly affect the health of those of us who live in them.

We must be alert to the appearance of fungus and mould on walls, corners and windows, fogged windows, furniture damaged by damp… In that moment we should call in a professional so that the problem can be dealt with as soon as possible.

As we have said, damp not only affects the aesthetic or functional level of our homes, but we can also fall ill as a result of it, so it is worth following some recommendations to avoid it. For example, making sure that the inside of our property has a humidity level of between 40% and 60%. To make sure of this, we can use a humidity meter.

There is damp at home, what should I do now?

If we see there is a damp at home, the best thing to call a professional, in order to find the most appropriate solution. Most damp problems in the home are usually caused by capillarity (water from the subsoil rising through the walls), filtration (water coming from under the ground) or condensation. In the last case, it is highly recommended to air the rooms well every day during the hottest hours of the day.

The air at home must be constantly renewed to ensure that it is of good quality, thus avoiding many illnesses, oxygenating the atmosphere, regulating humidity and reducing dust. Sometimes, natural ventilation alone is not enough, and devices must be used to ensure the correct distribution of air.

In addition to ventilation, there are other aspects that depend directly on us and that we can do to avoid this unpleasant problem at home:

  1. Clothes should be dried outside. If this is not possible, we can get a tumble dryer, but it is advisable to avoid drying indoors.
  2. We can use special paint for our house. Whether it is to alleviate the effects of condensation or to avoid the appearance of fungus and damp, it is a good idea to use this type of product in our homes.
  3. Install a dehumidifier: these devices collect humidity from the environment and help to maintain an adequate level of humidity.
  4. Get rid of mattresses affected by humidity: once we detect a mattress with humidity problems, we should get rid of it, as fungi and bacteria will appear in it, which can compromise our health and that of our loved ones.
