Can Rising Damp Cause Health Problems?February 8, 2012
Typically a problem found in period properties, damp can have a serious effect on the structural integrity of a building; but whilst many homeowners are concerned with the physical effects of damp on the house, they often overlook the effects that damp can have on their own health. Specialising in rising damp Leicester, we here at Injecta have first-hand experience with damp and subsequently we have decided to answer this frequently asked question.
Aside from affecting the external and internal structure of a domestic or commercial property Leicester, damp can also affect the health of those residing in a damp-ridden house. Some of the common health effects which are experienced centre on the respiratory system, causing allergies and cold-like symptoms. This is primarily caused by the fungi which grow and the spores which are then released into the atmosphere and subsequently breathed in by the occupant of the building.
