Having damp in your property is when moisture, water and condensation start building up in your property. It can start easily and without any real warning signs.
It sounds innocuous enough, but it can cause serious damage to your home if left to continue building up.
Solutions can be as simple as getting some air into the property and improving the ventilation, but it can be more complicated and may end up needing expensive work done to damp-proof your home and protect it against future issues.
