Think your home may be damp? Unsure of where to look? Although your home's walls are the most obvious target for damp, it's also important to damp proof your floor.
Dampness can show up in a number of ways on your floor. It may appear fairly harmless at first, just showing up as wet patches on carpets or floor coverings. Butit can easily progress and is capable of warping wooden floors. This can prove costly, as you'll need to replace the damaged part of the floor. In some cases, this could mean having to replace the entire floor. As well as the effects to your flooring, it can also lead to adverse health effects.
As with all damp, it proves the perfect environment for mould or mildew to grow in. You could ens up suffering from allergic reactions or asthma attacks as a result of a floor that's not properly damp proofed. Further more, moisture can provide the perfect living conditions for a number of pests. Creepy crawlies such as silverfish and woodlice thrive in damp conditions. If you leave your damp floor untreated you're practically inviting them in.
