After recently buying our first home, it’s safe to say I was less than impressed to find damp earlier this year in our newly fitted built-in wardrobes!
After starting here at Protective Packaging, I decided to invest in a Dampstick.
So far it has been hung in the Wardrobe for 5 weeks, I have been weighing it every couple of weeks and keeping track of how much water it has collected.
The starting weight of a Dampstick is 1.5kg. After the first 2 weeks, it was weighing in at 2kg! After a further 3 weeks, it now weighs over 2.5kg.
My pictures below show just how much water has been collected in just 5 weeks. And no sign of damp or mould whatsoever!
Originally developed for use in containers, Dampstick provides a cost effective and very efficient protection from the damaging effects of moisture. They are durable, long lasting and environmentally friendly. Dampsticks can be used for a wide variety of applications – from Container Storage, to use in Narrow Boats, to use in a domestic environment just as I have! Damsticks capture airborne moisture, remove it and contain it prevent any further re-circulation and can hold up to a massive 2L of water!
