The news has been awash with stories about North America’s Polar Vortex and Australia’s record breaking heat waves while New Zealanders bask under a fairly moderate summer sun. From around the globe, we’re hearing more and more about extreme temperature variations and while we’re not in the worst of it we do have our own struggles with temperature and it’s nation-wide.
Does your home have dampness or moisture problems?
Condensation, moisture and mould are all too common in NZ homes. About 30% of our homes suffer from problems associated with moisture internally. In a large number of these houses, dehumidifiers and ventilation systems are used to fix the symptoms of the problem, but not the source of the problem itself. Dampness makes rooms unhealthy to live in. In a lot of cases though, it is also a problem that is relatively cheap and easy to identify and fix.
