How to prepare for Winter damp Total Kit Car

It’s fast approaching winter, are you prepared for the damp that will ensue?

With winter comes the usual pitfalls of condensation, resulting in difficulties with damp, moisture build-up and mould.

Damp in the home can cause a variety of problems such as difficulty in drying clothes, a musty atmosphere and structural damage to your beloved home or property. Peeling or bubbles in wallpaper is unwanted, as is the hassle of drying clothes in an already damp environment.

Worse still are the other effects of damp, which lead to difficulties breathing, allergies deteriorating and other health issues.

There are a multitude of actions you can take to reduce the amount of damp in your home and remedy these negative effects.

Here are some simple steps you can instigate today to help:

  1. Ensure your property or home is properly ventilated, especially in rooms where your washing machine and tumble dryer are placed.
  2. It is often difficult to always commit in winter, but, if you do have dry weather, try and air dry your clothes outside rather than inside. In summer this is very easy to do and so there’s no excuse!
  3. When cooking it’s essential to utilise the extractor fan to reduce moisture build up in the air. A lot of moisture is created when boiling pans and the steam created can linger. Remember to keep it on for a little while even after cooking as this will help in reducing the residual moisture.
  4. It’s worth purchasing a similar extractor fan device for the bathroom, as condensation and moisture builds up after having baths and showers.
  5. Ensure your wardrobe or cupboards are not over stuffed with clothes or miscellaneous items. As with anything, if products or clothes are crammed together air can’t circulate around, increasing the likelihood of damp and a musty smell occurring.
  6. Another great tip is investing in a Meaco DD8L Zambezi Dehumidifer  There are many different models available, so it is worth exploring all versions to determine the best size and specification for you and your home.

It is essential to ensure you take the necessary measures to reduce the effects of moisture and damp in your home, especially with Winter on its way.
