House with damp and mold Adobe Stock 81293779

It’s not surprising that damp is a big issue for many households thanks to the UK’s fairly wet climate.

You can spot the signs of dampness on walls and ceilings, your walls may feel cold and look wet whilst ceilings will look stained and discoloured rising from the skirting boards. Damp is an issue all year round so if you have these problems, you need to take action quickly.

A big cause of damp issues is actually the moisture we create in our home that cannot escape. Moisture from breathing, cooking, washing, and laundry cannot escape our modern sealed homes. Extraction fans are not only inadequate but also very inefficient as they remove warm air.

Damp can occur when certain factors such as excess moisture, condensation and penetrating dampness are present. The presence of this causes the formation of damp patches on walls and ceilings which may be discoloured and feel wet to the touch. It’s not surprising that dampness is a big issue for many households here in the UK due to our climate, but even if you live in one of the drier parts of the UK you could still be at risk.

Damp is an unsightly and unhygienic problem that can affect homes throughout the UK. Fixing dampness can be a large job, with many causes of dampness capable of causing serious damage to your home if left untreated.

Damp and mould are far from just an aesthetic nuisance; if left untreated, they can cause serious problems. Condensation and dampness can lead to structural issues for your property and breathing in the spores from mould can be detrimental to health. You may not know this, but you are most at risk from dampness if you are elderly, very young or already suffer from respiratory problems.


What Causes Damp?

There are many causes of damp but one of the most common is simply not managing the moisture we create on a daily basis as a family. Moisture from breathing, cooking, laundry and showering cannot escape your home.


What happens to this moisture

The moisture we create every day will collect in the coldest part of your home. If you have double gazing, it’s more likely that the moisture will collect on a north facing wall or unheated room wall. Ultimately creating damp.



A dehumidifier collects this moisture we create, stopping it from forming on walls and creating damp. It also sucks up the moisture from existing damp problems solving many of them very inexpensively.

You’ll be surprised at how much excess moisture is in your home

An Ebac dehumidifier only removes EXCESS moisture. Your home will not become too dry. If the moisture level drops to a safe level Ebac’s Smart Control automatically switches off the dehumidifier. Ebac dehumidifiers maintain the perfect humidity for your home. Not too dry and not too moist. The perfect humidity level for comfort and protection. A typical home should remove up to 2 litres of moisture a day to prevent issues.

“We’ve had a condensation issue for many years but didn’t believe a dehumidifier could solve it until we tried Ebac.”

Every morning we would come down to pools of condensation on our windows and window sills. We couldn’t quite believe that a dehumidifier would actually work. But it did. 24 hours after trying one we started to see a difference and within 7 days the problem was gone.

“We get damp patches in some rooms around the house. These tend to be rooms that are not used and are unheated.”

We had tried a cheap dehumidifier from Amazon before, but it made no difference – so we were reluctant to try one again. But a friend said Ebac was better so we tried. Within a few days we were removing about 2 litres of water per day and within 3 or 4 days the damp was gone.

“Everyday we had condensation until we tried the Ebac dehumidifier”

We were very sceptical so took advantage of Ebac’s 30 days no quibble money back guarantee. Within 24 hours we were emptying large amounts of water and it solved the problem in a few days. We were very surprised it worked.

“All the mould and damp spots were gone in 3 days.”

We get mould and damp in our conservatory every winter. Pretty much every since it was built. The windows get condensation in winter too. Since we got the dehumidifier it attracts the excess water that used to collect in the conservatory. 3 days after using the Ebac dehumidifier the condensation was done and the damp spots too.

“We didn’t think it would make a difference but it did”

We had heard of dehumidifiers before but didn’t think one was necessary. We have a small amount of damp and a little condensation but nothing too severe. We tried an Ebac dehumidifier more out of curiosity and couldn’t believe how much water it removes. The house feels a lot better.

“We live in a bungalow and get quite severe condensation”

We thought about a dehumidifier but sorting out which was the best was a nightmare with different types and sizes. Our neighbour got an Ebac dehumidifier and said it worked. So we got one and it worked for us too. No more condensation.
