To fully understand why you have a damp smell in your building, you will need to try and find out what is causing it. You can get damp from condensation and from cooking as well as from rain and water that seeps in through your roof. You can, of course, use Roof sealant like that from CT1 to help make your roof as watertight as possible.

If you notice that you get lots of condensation on your windows, you should make sure that you wipe this off each morning and evening. If you have extractor fans in your kitchen and bathroom, ensure that these are turned on and used whenever you are cooking or in the shower.

You should also maintain all of your windows and your roof and inspect them regularly for signs of damage. This should be done particularly after a strong storm when some of your roof tiles or shingles may have moved or been damaged. Guttering can also be an area where dampness can occur if they are blocked, and water is allowed to seep down the back of the guttering and downpipes.
