Your home may be free of structural damp, but moisture in the air can still settle on your home’s surfaces via condensation. You won’t experience any serious structural damage with this kind of damp, but it can still cause mould and other allergens to accumulate in your home.
For these kinds of issues, we at Environ Property Services can damp-proof your home by installing a PIV unit. These are cheap, easily installed pieces of equipment that can ventilate your residence with fresh air, driving out all of the moisture and allergens from your home.
PIV units are far less expensive than their alternatives, MHVR units and full-house air conditioning. Moreover, we offer the most affordable PIV installation in the country, letting you get rid of the problem for a very low cost.

About Damp Proof Course
A damp proof course (DPC) is a barrier designed to stop moisture from running up walls. It can be made from all sorts of material, such as plastic, lead, rubber, and more.
If your residence was built within the last century, there’s a good chance it will already have a DPC installed. However, older buildings likely won’t have it, as they were constructed before damp proof courses were widely used.
Unfortunately, deterioration with age, or movement in the home can cause damage to your DPC, weakening its effectiveness.
It can be difficult to know whether or not your home’s DPC is damaged. You will need to hire damp proofing companies London to perform a survey on your property, and advise you on what to do. The only other way of knowing is when the rising damp has already set in and has caused visible damage to your house.
Whatever the damp problem may be in your home, Environ will be ready to help. Even problems that can’t be solved with DPC, like basement damp, can be easily addressed, as we are also a competent basement waterproofing company.
We can provide the best DPC and tanking solutions for your property.
Tips In Dealing With Damp Problems
Here are some tips to mitigate the harmful effects of damp:
- Regular outdoor maintenance
Since a lot of damp problems come from external factors, conducting regular outdoor maintenance will go a long way.
Always inspect your roof for damage, especially after storms. Make sure to clear your gutters of any leaves and other debris, and have any damaged parts replaced as soon as possible. Gutter guards are also a great help in keeping your gutters nice and clean.
- Good home ventilation
Having a well-ventilated home will help clear any moisture from your property. This is especially crucial during colder months, when the humidity is much higher.
Keep your windows open as often as possible, and inspect your washers and dryers to ensure they are properly vented. Having an extractor fan in your bathroom and kitchen will also help expel moisture from the area.
- Proper air circulation
It’s crucial to position your furniture a few centimetres away from walls so that air can circulate. This prevents condensation, and eventually mould, from forming on the surfaces that come into contact with each other.
These are just a few helpful things you can do to ward off damp from your home.
For serious cases, however, the help of a London damp proofing company is vital. When damp starts to damage the structural integrity of your building, only our damp proofing experts will be able to fix things.
We also have cellar waterproofing professionals and tanking services for other kinds of special damp treatment. Don’t hesitate, and give us a call now!
