Many houses face damp issues. These need to be taken care of immediately. If not, they might affect both the house as well as the inmates. Research has shown that damp issues cause problems to the health of the members staying in the house. Hence, it is necessary to resolve the issue at the start itself. First solution is to find damp proofing solutions. Instead of finding these solutions yourself, it is best advised to take help from professionals. The solutions provide the right prescription for patches that have damp issues. House walls and basements are two areas of the house that are most affected by these problems. New structures these days are built with damp proofing solutions to avoid any such dampening problems. Initial years do not cause dampening problems. However, as the building starts to grow old, such problems start to erupt. Not only does it damage the fixture of the building but also causes respiration problems to the members of the family. Leaving it unattended can cause permanent problems with maximum damage. This can result in more money, time and effort spent in solving the dampening problem. Specialists assess the whole property, both internally and externally, and find the cause of the problem. Floors generally have this problem. As many a times, the basement remains unnoticed for longer periods causing the problem to grow. If the dampening problem grows then, it might destabilise the entire structure. However, if the specialist is consulted at the right time, then the problem can be solved permanently. Walls that are exposed to moisture or rains during monsoons also give such problems. Sometimes, walls that are adjacent to any water connections like the kitchen sinks, wash basins, toilets etc pose threat of dampening. Hence, extra care should be taken while constructing walls near such areas. Always find firms that are reputed as you would not like to give your house to anyone who cannot be trusted to do their work right. Consulting and doing some market research can be a good step. Comparing the materials used and the cost quoted by the firms is another step that needs to be taken. Reading customer feedback or consulting people who have used such guidance can be helpful. Initially many firms give free of cost quotations and solutions problems to the property. So it is best advised to find the best firm that suits you. Summary Initial precautions are a must to avoid damping problems. However, the specialist can be of great help if consulted before any major damage is done.]]>
