One of the causes of breakdown in homes across Australia is salt damp. This type of issue can cause typical water damage and dampness through concrete flooring. It can also cause the concrete to break down and become brittle. This brittleness can lead to the damage of the house foundation and the walls. It can also allow the dampness to move into wood and cause wood rot. Before any of this happens, you can have a salt damp inspection done as part of your regular preventative maintenance.
