Combat persistent damp in your home by: • insulating (under the floor, in the ceiling and walls). • Ventilating (including extractor fans in bathrooms and kitchens, opening windows, using a dehumidifier or forced ventilation system and keeping vents clear). • Heating (aim to keep the indoor temperature at a minimum of 16C). • Replacing unflued gas heaters with electric or flued gas heaters.
