At Care Housing Association we often find over the winter months that there is an increase in people reporting problems with dampness in their homes.

Quite often it can be easily prevented. As winter approaches and the temperature drops, there tends to be much more condensation built up indoors because the cooler air cannot hold as much moisture, as it is colder and wetter people tend to keep windows closed, dry clothes indoors and don’t air out rooms as often as they might in summer.

We have put together some useful information about the main causes of damp and what you can do to prevent it – please click here to open a PDF with further information.
