Cavity wall clearance is the process whereby debris, blockages or old insulating material is removed from a cavity. Such obstructions are found in a number of properties and can often causes issues within the home, such as creating cold spots and damp problems.Most houses built in the UK since 1930 are constructed with cavity walls: walls formed from two thicknesses of masonry with a gap between them, held together by air ties.
The construction method is intended to ensure that all moisture that may enter the cavity simply drains to the footings and safely away from the property, without ever crossing to the inner wall.
For this to work effectively, the cavity must remain completely free of debris and blockages, as such obstructions can lead to a bridge being created in the air space between the two thicknesses of masonry, resulting in moisture being transferred to inner walls rather than draining as intended. Such moisture penetration can cause a range of problems in the home, such as damp and mould issues.
