While rising damp problems are less serious than they actually look, it is definitely a problem that is unsightly and quite unhealthy for your floors and surrounding walls. If left unchecked, a damp problem will cause timber decay and heat loss and can spread to the walls, breaking down the plaster and becoming a much bigger issue for your home.
Common Floor Issues
In order to give you a better understanding of the importance of repairing your floors, here are a few of the more common issues for people in the London area.
Given the heavy amount of rainfall in the London area, wet rot ends up being one of the more common flooring issues that we deal with.Luckily, treating wet rot is not too difficult. Our floor sanding team will come in and remove the moisture source and dry out the surrounding wood to prevent the dampness from spreading further.
Identifying Wet Rot
You will know if your floor has wet rot if you see these symptoms:
- Wood is very damp
- Wood may be cracked or very dark looking
- Your floor will crumble if prodded with a screwdriver
These are all signs that you are experiencing wet rot. Don’t worry though, as our flooring specialists can come in and provide you with a free quote and then begin eradicating your wet rot problem.
A more difficult wood flooring issue is dry rot. This is a serious problem that can jeopardize the integrity of your entire structure. Basically, dry rot occurs when you have a living, growing fungus inhabiting your floors and it goes on to consume and destroy the wooden components of your house.
A Few Symptoms For Dry Rot Include
- Flooring is brown in colour and those areas are dry and brittle
- The wood floor will easily break or crumble in your hand
- Fine greyish strands will appear as a result of the dry rot spores
