Have You Been a Victim of Cavity Wall Insulation Problems?
There are many surprise issues with cavity wall insulation. If you don’t think you’ve fallen victim to the issues, you may want to think twice.
There has been a huge push to get homeowners to invest in getting insulation for their properties, and this ‘PR campaign’ has led to many people thinking that cavity wall insulation is a cheap and affordable way of boosting your home’s energy efficiency and reducing heating bills. While it is useful in some cases, people need to understand that there are a lot of problems associated with having cavity wall insulation installed, especially if it is not done correctly. Thousands of homeowners unwittingly put the integrity of their property at risk, and put the health of themselves and their families at risk too, by wandering into these issues with cavity wall insulation.
If you have had cavity wall insulation installed and have noticed damp spots in your property following that work, it is vital that you get your property checked as soon as possible. Once the issues have taken hold, they will get worse over time, and it becomes harder and harder to fix them.
Getting an impartial investigation into the damp problems done is important, as installers of insulation are notorious for ‘making excuses’ and denying responsibility for problems with insulation. A lot of consumers get fobbed off with stopgap solutions such as “open the windows” or “turn your heating down” which will not help in the long term. These solutions do not undo the damage. The only thing you can do long term to protect your property is to remove the insulation.
If you have damp which was caused by cavity wall insulation, you need to have the insulation taken out.
Do not be intimidated by the idea of removing the insulation. The work can look daunting, but if you work with a trusted, reliable firm such as Cavity Care Solutions then you will find that the process is low stress, and cost-effective, especially compared to trying to undo the damage to your property later.
