Of all the rooms in the house, the kitchen may well be the one which people most dread finding damp or mould in. After all, this is where you prepare and store your food: the last thing that anybody wants is the danger that food or cooking equipment is becoming contaminated by damp or mould spores. And, at the very least, it’s more than enough to put you off your meal!
Luckily, there are plenty of damp proofing solutions out there that will stop you from having to face these problems for any longer. Whether you are dealing with a significant mould problem, or have just noticed the first few tell-tale signs that something might be wrong, it’s never the wrong time to reach out to a professional. Here at Precision Damp Proofing, we provide damp proofing solutions across Sheffield to help you enjoy your home the way you should be able to.
Damp can bring quite a variety of different issues into your home, including respiratory health issues, discolouration to your walls (yellow patches of damp or black mould growth can ruin your wallpaper, and cause a lot of more serious issues, too), and even structural damage. The longer you leave it, the worse these problems will become. That’s why it’s so important to fight back as soon as you become aware of any potential damp, condensation and mould growth.
We offer a range of different solutions to the clients that we work with, tailored to the specific issues that you’re facing.
These solutions can include:
Installing an extractor fan
Generally used in kitchens, bathrooms and other high humidity spaces, extractor fans are used to pull moist air out of the room, stopping it from settling as condensation or causing a damp issue. Unobtrusive but surprisingly powerful, if you don’t already have an extractor fan in your kitchen – or the one that you do have is getting old and tired – then this is really an essential step.
Installing a positive pressure ventilation system
Although these systems are less commonly used specifically for the kitchen, if the problem runs throughout your entire home then it may be a practical choice. Put simply, they work by pulling more fresh air into the house or flat, and ensuring that it circulates effectively. As we say, this isn’t necessarily the top choice if you’re only facing problems in your kitchen, but if the problem runs through your kitchen as well as other rooms then it is an effective option.
Chemical Damp Proofing Course
If your home doesn’t already have proper damp proofing, then injecting a chemical damp proofing course can provide a barrier that stops the specific issue of rising damp – damp problems that are caused by water rising up from the ground. For clients that need kitchen damp proofing to help with rising damp, this is generally the optimum solution.
Of all the rooms in your home, the kitchen is probably the space that you are most concerned about keeping clean – and free of contamination from mould. If you ask for help from Precision Damp Proofing, we won’t just help by providing kitchen damp proofing solutions, but also by offering products that combat or remove the existing mould growth. This includes Mould Control Packs, which can be used on any black patches of mould growth, and Fungicidal Emulsion Paint for practical decorating.
Most importantly, we’ll help you to take back control of your kitchen, transforming it back into a space where you can enjoy cooking, and feel comfortable storing your food.
