Damp in the home is best summed up as water or moisture getting in where it should not be.!

Moulds will grow when provided with moisture and nutrients. High moisture levels can be the result of water coming in from the outside, through the floor, walls or roof; or from plumbing leaks; or moisture produced by the people living in the home, daily activities like bathing, washing clothes or cooking.

High moisture levels can be the result of water coming in from the outside, through the floor, walls or roof; or from plumbing leaks; or moisture produced by the people living in the home, through daily activities like bathing, washing clothes or cooking.

Water enters the building when there is a weakness or failure in the structure.

Moisture accumulates within the home when there is not enough ventilation to expel that moisture.
