No matter how well your home was built, it is still susceptible to damage from damp and rot. This does not have anything to do with the structure and stability of your home, but rather the environment and area in which you live. While you can’t do anything to change the weather in Dudley, you can take steps to ensure that your home will be protected from the damp and wet by working with reliable damp companies. Rather than ignoring the possibility of a damp problem or refusing to get the treatment that you need, when you get professional help from a damp specialist, you can rest easy knowing that your home will remain in the best possible condition.


Why You Need Damp Treatment

If your home is at risk of damage from damp, then you will need to have a professional come and perform damp treatment. The type of treatment that you have done on your home will depend partly on the type of damp that your property is at risk of suffering from. Because you may need protection from rising damp, penetrating damp, or both, you need to work with damp contractors who understand how to determine the right kind of damp proofing that you need at your home. Without professional help, it is very likely that you will suffer damage from damp in the future. Regular assessment of your property and the type of treatment that you need will ensure that your home is protected.


All about Wood Rot

Once your home has already been damaged by damp and rot has been allowed to occur and to spread, you will need help from damp experts who specialise in treating this problem. The fungus that attacks your wood can quickly cause extensive damage if you do not treat it right away. Both wet and dry rot can damage your home, although dry rot is likely to be able to cause more problems since the rot will not remain only in moist and wet areas. Dry rot can spread very rapidly throughout your home, travelling along both your timber, and also your bricks until it has infiltrated your entire home, which is why you need professional treatment as soon as possible.
