Subfloor Ventilation King’s Lynn

To get rid of rising damp, there are ventilation systems and ventilation under the floor.

Does your home get too wet or smell like mould and you don’t know why?

If your house doesn’t have subfloor ventilation, it could be because moisture is rising from below the floor. Moisture from the ground can get into your home through the subfloor. This can lead to damp and mould, which are bad for your health and can damage your home and its furniture.

How does Subfloor Ventilation work?

A Subfloor Ventilation System moves air through the space under the floor. We do this by using a fan unit to bring in fresh air from the outside and push air out from under the floor. The number of fan units can change based on the area and how much water is there. When our technician comes to see you, they will tell you what the best solution is for your home.

How moisture can accumulate under a home

Depending on how the land around your house slopes, water may pool after it rains, then slowly evaporate and rise into the house. By letting air in and pushing it out, subfloor ventilation works well to get rid of this moisture. But you might need to look into ways to drain water so it doesn’t pool in the first place.

With the addition of decks and more plants from gardens and shrubs, the natural cross-flow ventilation under homes can be hurt, and the humidity that is usually released from the ground can’t get out. Moisture is always coming up from the ground, and the wind moves it around. But when a house is built on top of the ground without enough ventilation, the moisture has nowhere to go but into the building materials.

Check your home from the ground up

You can see if you can get to the space under your floor for yourself. Does it look like it’s wet? Does it smell like old things? Can you see any signs of water damage or mould? If so, you might want to make the area more airy so that rising damp doesn’t cause problems in your home.
