How to identify, repair and protect against damp at home

How to identify, repair and protect against damp at home

Damp problems can be a serious concern in any home, whether you are a home-owner or renter, or living in any style of property. At best it can be a nuisance and make a room feel cold, unwelcoming and unhealthy, and at worst it can indicate structural or weatherproofing issues.

Fortunately, damp can often be treated and prevented without calling in the professionals. There are also easy signs to keep an eye out for that might indicate a problem, and simple strategies you can employ to reduce symptoms in your home.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through the process of identifying a damp problem and establishing its cause, and suggest how to repair and remedy so that you can enjoy your living space once again.

Buyer's guide to loft insulation

Buyer's guide to loft insulation

Out of sight, out of mind – the dark, dirty loft is one of the areas of the house that can be neglected in favour of rooms that are more accessible and see more use. But, while insulating the loft is not one of the most glamorous jobs in the world, you should only have to do it once and it will prove massively beneficial to your comfort as well as your bank balance.

But before you head up into the loft, it’s important to decide which type of insulating material you’re going to use to complete the job. And where once there was very little choice available, now there are a number of different options to choose from – that can all be mixed and matched to suit your needs. So whether you’re looking for something that’s eco-friendly, that’s kind to the skin or even provides a stable surface for walking on – we’ll take you through all the different materials available.

Before you begin

It’s important to understand how much existing insulation your home currently has, and subsequently how much new insulation you need to complete your project. For more on this, read our guide on How to insulate your loft.

Don’t forget that loft floor insulation is compression packed for easier handling and will expand to the advertised thickness when unwrapped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the ticket I purchased 2 of these one for my mother and one for myself, they are so easy to put on and take off, bought just in time for the snow we have now got. - brilliant

Rated 5 out of 5 by from outside tap protection We have recently had minus temperatures over the last couple of weeks, and I can honestly say that the insulated outside tap cover protected my outside tap from freezing. This product is very easy to use and remove once temperatures rise, ready to use again next time. This item was readily available at B & Q and not in other places locally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outside tap insulation The polystyrene cover is easy to fit, with the plastic strap pushing the rubber seal against the outside wall. Stops the outside tap freezing with the ice penetrating into the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have has one one these for years!! These are spot on, they do the job, I have been to B&Q every time I move house and buy one of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says Easy to fit and use -15 this week protected tap while others in street had burst pipes to outside tap. Fitted in seconds seals onto wall with easy toggle action easy to release

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to install The cover was easy to install, though the instructions refer to tightening a "wingnut" which is not part of the product as delivered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stormguard Outside Tap Cover Clever idea and simple to use although you have to remove any hose connector from the tap to allow it to fit. I have stuffed mine with bubble wrap for extra protection against the cold. Seems robust but only time will tell. If it does the job and saves the cost of repairing a burst pipe I don't mind if I have to replace it every year or so.
